The big details I wanted to know before purchase: Yes, the formatting is correct. Italics are italicised, there's no HTML code to be seen. Yes, the table of contents is hyperlinked, so you can click to whatever story you want with ease. And yes, it's presented well, easy to read, proper chapter and title headings, separating each tale from the next.
I've already read every Lovecraft tale from the initial three ST Joshi edited compendia, but I'm not an expert. I believe every tale is here - every major tale I remember is here, for sure. Some of the other anthologies contain Lovecraft's non-fiction and letters - I have no interest in those really, but I guess if you want a complete collection then you may want to look for those elsewhere.
But if you want a comprehensive collection of Lovecraft's fiction, well-formatted, easy to access and seemingly definitive, go for this.
