Joyce Carol Oates, Stephen King, and other experts on horror fiction deem H. P. Lovecraft the master teller of weird tales. These six chilling stories ― all published between 1921 and 1933 ― offer compelling journeys into the land of the undead.
The collection begins with “The Outsider,” the tale of a recluse whose overwhelming loneliness emboldens him to seek out human contact. Subsequent stories include “Herbert West ― Reanimator,” written as a satire of Frankenstein and used as the source for a popular horror film; “In the Vault,” in which an undertaker experiences supernatural revenge; “Cool Air,” an account of a doctor’s fanatical obsession with defying death; and “Pickman’s Model,” focusing on an artist’s gallery of nightmares. “The Thing on the Doorstep” concludes the compilation with the compelling tale of a man whose body is preyed upon by a spirit that refuses to die.
“Highly recommended. A great way to re-animate Lovecraft’s standing as a master of the horror genre.” — Looking for a Good Book
