The twentieth century's greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale', Stephen King about H. P. Lovecraft. H. P. Lovecraft's fiction reveals a universe that is vaster, darker, and stranger than anything previously imagined. His cosmic horror reflects a peculiarly modern philosophical belief system in which human beings are regarded as insignificant in light of the vastness of time and space. The especially Lovecraftian twist on this apocalyptic premise is that it is alien forces and powers at work in the universe that possess the potential for the ultimate destruction of mankind. These stories will introduce readers to Lovecraft's pantheon of gods, his characteristic themes, his fictitious New England geography and, of course, the "Necronomicon", Lovecraft's famous invented book of occult secrets.
