Call of Cthulhu

Review:

I think it is beyond doubt that H. P. Lovecraft has yet to be surpassed as the twentieth century's greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale (Stephen King)

About the Author:

Born in Providence, Rhode Island in 1890, Lovecraft was self-educated and lived in his birthplace all his life, working as a freelance writer, journalist, and ghostwriter. Using many pen names, he contributed his supernatural/horror and science fiction/fantasy stories to various pulp magazines but his reputation as a writer rests mainly on the 60 or so stories he published in Weird Tales starting in 1923. He died in 1937.

Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 192 x 128 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Collecting uniquely uncanny tales from the master of American horror, H.P. Lovecraft s The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories is edited with an introduction and notes by S.T. Joshi in Penguin Modern Classics. Credited with inventing the modern horror tradition, H.P. Lovecraft remade the genre in the early twentieth century. Discarding ghosts and witches, and instead envisaging mankind at the mercy of a chaotic and malevolent universe, Lovecraft s unique works would prove to be a huge influence on modern horror writers such as Stephen King. This selection of short stories ranges from early tales of nightmares and insanity such as The Outsider and The Rats in the Walls through the grotesquely comic Herbert West - Reanimator and The Hound , to the extraterrestrial terror of The Call of Cthulhu , which fuses traditional supernaturalism with science fiction. Including the definitive corrected texts, this collection reveals the development of Lovecraft s mesmerising narrative style and establishes him as a hugely influential - and visionary - American writer. Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937), born in Providence, Rhode Island was self-educated and lived in his birthplace all his life, working as a freelance writer, journalist, and ghostwriter. Using many pen names, he contributed his supernatural/horror and science fiction/fantasy stories to various pulp magazines but his reputation as a writer rests mainly on the 60 or so stories he published in the pulp magazine Weird Tales starting in 1923. If you enjoyed The Call of Cthulhu, you might also like Arthur Machen s The White People and Other Weird Stories, available in Penguin Classics. The twentieth century horror story s dark and baroque prince Stephen King. Bookseller Inventory # APG9780141187068
