Overview

The Cthulhu Mythos was H.P. Lovecraft's greatest contribution to supernatural literature: a series of stories that evoked cosmic awe and terror through their accounts of incomprehensibly alien monsters and their horrifying incursions into our world. The Complete Cthulhu Mythos Tales collects 23 of Lovecraft's greatest weird tales, including "The Call of Cthulhu," "The Colour out of Space," "The Dunwich Horror," "The Shadow over Innsmouth," and "The Shadow out of Time." It also features six collaborative "revisions" through which Lovecraft expanded the scope of his dark mythology, as well as an Introduction by scholar S. T. Joshi, the world's leading authority on H.P. Lovecraft. This special edition of The Complete Cthulhu Mythos Tales also includes the collectible poster "Cthulhu Rising" by cover artist John Coulthart, which measures 16 x 20 inches and is suitable for framing. The Complete Cthulhu Mythos Tales is one of Barnes & Noble's Collectible Editions classics. Each volume features authoritative texts by the world's greatest authors in an exquisitely designed bonded-leather binding, with distinctive gilt edging and a ribbon bookmark. Decorative, durable, and collectible, these books offer hours of pleasure to readers young and old and are an indispensable cornerstone for every home library.

About the Author

Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937), commonly known as H. P. Lovecraft, was an American author known for his works of horror fiction (many of which have been adapted into movies). Having died in obscure poverty, he achieved posthumous fame for his books and stories. Today, he is best known for his take on The Call of Cthulhu. Because of his influence on contemporary writers and the development of his unique style known as "Lovecraftian," he is often compared to Edgar Allan Poe.

With it's special metallic ink illustration, high-quality leather binding and free Cthulhu poster, this renewed Collector's Edition is no doubt one of the best Lovecraft books out there.

Both copies I bought as gifts were loved immensely. I really love the metallic edging and would buy a copy for myself, if one copy was not my husband's.

Really impressed with this edition and it's stories. I bought this for my brother, while checking the book for any problems after it arrived I found myself drawn into one of the stories, I ended up reading the whole thing myself before wrapping it for christmas! It contains stories related to Lovecraft's C'thulhu mythos. I must admit, I didn't realize there were any more than the most popular two i'd read as a teen. The book itself is gorgeous, with gold gilt pages and gold detailing on parts of the cover. The one I bought came with a poster on the back inside cover. Want to buy one for myself now!
