The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Tales




It’s science fiction from the masters of the genre! Special 3-D cover design PLUS each book comes with 3D glasses!

An introduction to the weird and unsettling world of H.P. Lovecraft, master of horror and pioneer of 'weird fiction'.

Between these pages you will find things that lurk, things that scurry in the walls, things that move unseen, things that have learnt to walk that ought to crawl, unfathomable blackness, unconquerable evil, inhuman impulses, abnormal bodies, ancient rites, nameless lands best left undiscovered, thoughts best left unspoken, doors best left closed, names best forgotten. You have been warned.

Praise for The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Tales

“Dark, weird tales about tentacled beasts, ancient artifacts that ooze unidentifiable slime and baby-eating cultists eager to bring about the end of the world”

New York Times

“Lovecraft is the crucial link between Victorian Gothic and post-Sixties Horror, as well as a palpable influence on the mythology of Buffy the Vampire Slayer”

Independent

“His prescience and novelty seem more and more remarkable...shows a deeply modern horror at the universe”

Nicholas Lezard, Guardian

“Lovecraft found a voice that was profoundly his own -- and brought horror into the 20th century. His best stories sent the gothic into collision with science fiction and offered a bleak vision of a world whose thin veneer of civilization was being stripped away by an implacable zeal for knowledge”

Washington Post

“The founding father of what has become known as "weird fiction''...Lovecraft has nothing in common with Anita Brookner”

Daily Telegraph

“Lovecraft's over-the-top verbal styling and unique vision of crawling chaos and dread is one of the gems of the genre”

Guardian

“The twentieth century horror story's dark and baroque prince”

Stephen King
