The Horror In The Museum And Other Revisions

The Horror In The Museum And Other Revisions by HP Lovecraft (Carroll & Graf – 2002)

Every tale in this engrossing collection bears the unmistakable mark of the genius who inspired it—the creator of the Cthulhu Mythos, H.P. Lovecraft. For Lovecraft not only revised the stories of his fellow adventurers in the haunting and haunted worlds of legend and lore, he more often entirely rewrote them or collaborated extensively in their creation. As in all of Lovecraft’s fiction, then, these startlingly original tales explore the farthest reaches of the imagination, the cosmic realms of myth and mystery, and unutterable terrors in arcane domains as they lure the reader out of a familiar but precarious everyday reality.
