H P Lovecraft,Creation Books, 1997, Softcover, 256 pages.





Back cover:


H P Lovecraft, one of the greatest obsessive writers of the 20th century, naturally chose the pulp genre of "weird horror" in which to exorcise his acute anatomical alienation and existential torment. Within the mastrix of his grotesque yet complex mythology, Lovecraft was able to conjure a hideous universe lying just beyond our own: his relentless style and language forging a convoluted, midnight - purple literary form which ultimately achieves a veritable "pornography" of horror: the accumulation and repetition of his demonic visions climaxing in orgasms of cosmic revulsion.


The stories in this volume comprises a chronological collection of this unique writer's best work; from his distinctive collaborative pieces, prose-poems and early tales of the gruesome and bizarre, through to maturation and efflorescence of his personal cosmology, the Cthulhu Mythos.


With an introduction by Colin Wilson
