Customer Review

on 8 March 2011
Nothing much else to say what already hasn't been said to be honest. This is an incredible book of some of H.P Lovecraft's finest short story's. They are all different but most of them are connected into the 'Cthulu Mythos' which deals with entity's from other worlds, extra terrestrial and inter dimensional.

''Common themes in Lovecraft's fiction are the insignificance of humanity in the universe and the search for knowledge ending in disaster. Humans are often subject to powerful beings and other cosmic forces, but these forces are not so much malevolent as they are indifferent toward humanity. ''

You've got the terrific short story 'The Statement of Randolph Carter' at only 5 pages long, still manages to be highly creepy with the best end line I've ever read.

Then we have 'At the Mountains of Madness' at around 50 pages which centers on a groups expedition to the antarctic where they find that an ancient race once dwelled there.

You have tales about Rats, Cats, Aliens, and many other things to weird to mention!

Not one bad story here, and most of them are fantastic. I never thought that story's from nearly 100 years ago could be so thrilling and downright creepy, but i was proven wrong.

This is a must by for any fans of horror literature....

The end is near. I hear a noise at the door, as of some immense slippery body lumbering against it. It shall not find me. God, that hand! The window! The window!
