An extraordinary collection by the 20th century's great master of horror…
“There are black zones of shadow close to our daily paths, and now and then some evil soul breaks a passage through.” – H.P. Lovecraft, “The Thing on the Doorstep.”

When he died in 1937, the 46 year old H.P. Lovecraft was an unknown, impoverished pulp writer whose stories seemed forever lost to the back pages of old copies of Amazing Stories and Weird Tales.

Today, Lovecraft is considered second only to that other once scorned visionary, Edgar Alan Poe, in the pantheon of horror writing, and it is Lovecraft's chilling hybrid of gothic horror and Science Fiction that is the major inspiration and model for almost all of today's supernatural fiction.

Now, Easton Press is proud to present these landmark horror masterpieces in an exceptional deluxe volume: LOVECRAFT TALES, an exclusive leather-bound Collector's Edition.

Groundbreaking tales of “Cosmic Horror.”

The spell cast by H.P. Lovecraft's stories of psychological collapse in the face of cosmic malice can be felt throughout modern fiction, movies, graphic novels, video games, art, and music. For contemporary artists such as Clive Barker, Joyce Carol Oates, Michael Chabon, and Guillermo del Toro, Lovecraft is simply the king of “weird” storytelling.

LOVECRAFT TALES collects in a single grand volume virtually all of the master's work, over sixty short stories, novellas, and novels, including the classics “At the Mountains of Madness,” “The Dunwich Horror,” “The Call of Cthulhu,” The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath, and The Case of Charles Dexter Ward.

Many have learned from H.P. Lovecraft and tried to imitate his genius, but the hypnotic stories in LOVECRAFT TALES remain supreme and a continuing inspiration for both readers and creators of modern supernatural fiction.

“I think it is beyond doubt that H. P. Lovecraft has yet to be surpassed as the twentieth century’s greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale,” writes Stephen King. Neil Gaiman declares, “H.P. Lovecraft built the stage on which most of the last century's horror fiction was performed.”

H.P. Lovecraft in the most magnificent edition ever.

Easton Press has created for the horror classics of the great H.P. Lovecraft an edition of unmatched beauty and excellence – an Easton Press Collector's Edition, the state-of-the-art in heirloom quality bookmaking.

The binding is of supple premium leather, hand-selected for this superb volume. The raised “hubbed” spine -- traditional hallmark of the finely crafted book -- is accented with true 22k gold. Moiré end sheets, gilded pages, and heavy duty binding boards further enhance the book’s beauty and durability.

H.P. Lovecraft's powerful stories of “Cosmic Horror” are preserved on archival-quality paper that will not yellow or fade with age – and the pages of this large and impressive volume are not merely glued into the binding, as is standard for ordinary books, but Smyth-sewn with sturdy thread, a traditional technique that ensures easier reading and greater longevity.

The Collector's Edition LOVECRAFT TALES is an indispensable volume – and will make a thrilling one-of-a-kind gift -- for anyone with an interest in modern horror writing or stories of the supernatural.
