At The Mountains Of Madness & Other Stories
Lovecraft's most famous and most terrifying novel is collected here with two of his novellas, The Shadow Over Innsmouth and The Thing on the Doorstep, to provide a shocking introduction to the world of Lovecraft's imagination. Set in the Cthulhu mythos, these stories are classics of the gothic tradition. From the investigation of the City of the Old Ones on the Antarctic plateau to the everyday horror to be found in the small New England town of Innsmouth, Lovecraft evokes terror in a way that no other writer can rival.
Howard Phillips "H. P." Lovecraft (August 20, 1890 – March 15, 1937) was an American author who achieved posthumous fame through his influential works of horror fiction. Virtually unknown and only published in pulp magazines before he died in poverty, he is now widely seen as one of the most significant 20th century authors in his genre.
