Multi-eyed protoplasmic entities, flesh-eating ghouls, animate corpses, time-travelling body snatchers, and, yes, huge albino penguins. These are some of the bizarre creatures that populate the universe created by American horror author H. P. Lovecraft. Lovecraft has influenced many of todays most famous writers and artists, including master of contemporary horror fiction Stephen King, Academy Award-nominated director Guillermo Del Toro, and artist and Alien set-designer H. R. Giger. This collection includes three selections from the Cthulhu Mythos: the novella At the Mountains of Madness, which is often considered Lovecrafts masterpiece; The Thing on the Doorstep; and The Shadow Out of Time. While including all the chilling cyclopean vistas, monstrous abominations and appalling transformations that readers have come to expect from Lovecraft, this also showcases his fantasy writing in stories such as The Cats of Ulthar, The Silver Key, and notably The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath.
