"The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown." --H. P. LOVECRAFT, "Supernatural Horror in Literature" Howard Phillips Lovecraft forever changed the face of horror, fantasy, and science fiction with a remarkable series of stories as influential as the works of Poe, Tolkien, and Edgar Rice Burroughs. His chilling mythology established a gateway between the known universe and an ancient dimension of otherworldly terror, whose unspeakable denizens and monstrous landscapes--dread Cthulhu, Yog-Sothoth, the Plateau of Leng, the Mountains of Madness--have earned him a permanent place in the history of the macabre. In Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos, a pantheon of horror and fantasy's finest authors pay tribute to the master of the macabre with a collection of original stories set in the fearsome Lovecraft tradition: ¸ The Call of Cthulhu by H. P. Lovecraft: The slumbering monster-gods return to the world of mortals. ¸ Notebook Found in a Deserted House by Robert Bloch: A lone farmboy chronicles his last stand against a hungering backwoods evil. ¸ Cold Print by Ramsey Campbell: An avid reader of forbidden books finds a treasure trove of deadly volumes--available for a bloodcurdling price. ¸ The Freshman by Philip José Farmer: A student of the black arts receives an education in horror at notorious Miskatonic University. PLUS EIGHTEEN MORE SPINE-TINGLING TALES!

H.P. Lovecraft like his creation, Cthulhu never truly died. He and his influence live on, in the work of so many of us who were his friends and acolytes. Today we have reason for rejoicing in the widespread revival of his canonIf a volume such as this has any justification for it's existence, it's because Lovecraft's readers continue to search out stories which reflect his contribution to the field of fantasy [the tales in this book] represent a lifelong homage to HPL I hope you'll accept them for what they were and are a labor of love.-- Robert BlochThis third edition now includes the Robert Bloch short stories The Opener of the Way, The Eyes of the Mummy, Black Bargain, and Philtre Tip.This book is one in an expanding collection of Cthulhu Mythos horror fiction.

The Cthulhu Mythos is a shared fictional universe, originating in the works of American horror writer H. P. Lovecraft. The term was coined by August Derleth, a contemporary correspondent and protégé of Lovecraft, to identify the settings, tropes, and lore that were employed by Lovecraft and his literary successors. The name Cthulhu derives from the central creature in Lovecraft's seminal short story, "The Call of Cthulhu", first published in the pulp magazine Weird Tales in 1928. Richard L. Tierney, a writer who also wrote Mythos tales, later applied the term "Derleth Mythos" to distinguish Lovecraft's works from Derleth's later stories, which modify key tenets of the Mythos.Authors of Lovecraftian horror in particular frequently use elements of the Cthulhu Mythos.

The seventeen stories selected for this compilation range from the fantastic to the outright bizarre, exposing the dark dreams and obsessions that plagued the short life of H.P. Lovecraft, the master of supernatural horror and fiction. Often known as either The Cthulhu or Lovecraft Mythos, his later works of short fiction are the foundation for the dark phantasmic mythology that has driven a cult following like none other before or since in literary history, inspiring countless writers and artists around the world over the last century. In the feature story 'The Call of Cthulhu', a manuscript is found amongst the papers of a deceased professor's estate, including pamphlets, newspaper clippings, and a strange statuette, all pointing to the same horrific truth-the return of the Dark God Cthulhu and his corpse-city R'lyeh. Furthering the research of the professor, the narrator is taken on a journey to the deep Pacific, as he discovers first-hand the fate that awaits all those who oppose the ancient cult devoted to the liberation of the monstrous being from the shadow time of Earth, that yearns to emerge from Its abyssal prison and sway all humankind to Its will. And while the aethereal beast from the darkest of ages past was forced back long enough to sink again with the ruins of Its nightmarish and impossible city, It is not beaten... Cthulhu lies in wait only for the stars to align once more. Also included are sixteen more terrifying tales from the twisted dreams and visions of the master of horror and the macabre: Azathoth, The Shadow Over Innsmouth, He, The Whisperer in Darkness, Cool Air, The Evil Clergyman, Ibid, The Book, History of the Necronomicon, The Strange High House in the Mist, Ex Oblivione, The Nameless City, Hypnos, The Horror at Red Hook, What the Moon Brings, and The Haunter of the Dark.

The complete Cthulhu Mythos by master horror writer H. P. Lovecraft in one volume. The Cthulhu Mythos is a collection of 23 loosely connected short stories by H. P. Lovecraft, one of the earliest masters of dark fantasy and horror. From "Dagon" to "The Call of Cthulhu" to "The Haunter of the Dark," each story connects to the ancient cosmic entities known as the Great Old Ones, buried in a deep sleep beneath the earth and incomprehensible to mankind. For the few mortals who dare to glimpse this unknowable world, the result is a complete disconnection from what was once considered reality. Lovecraft's stories are grim, fantastical, dark, horrifying—and yet endlessly fascinating.

Following up on the success of A Mountain Walked, this volume presents another dozen tales of the Cthulhu Mythos that show how H. P. Lovecraft's motifs, conceptions, and imagery have affected an entire century of weird writing. Beginning with a delightful parody of Lovecraft written by Edith Miniter in 1921, this anthology features "The Red Brain," a story of incalculable cosmic horror by Donald Wandrei; "The Beast of Averoigne," in which Clark Ashton Smith plays a riff on "The Dunwich Horror"; and C. Hall Thompson's "The Will of Claude Ashur," an ingenious adaptation of "The Thing on the Doorstep." Ramsey Campbell, one of the leading weird writers of today, has always maintained his Lovecraftian roots, and in "The Pattern" he utilizes Lovecraft's theme of "conflict with time" to cataclysmic effect. The pioneering Thomas Ligotti ("The Sect of the Idiot") draws inspiration from Lovecraft's early tales, while Brian McNaughton ("Meryphillia") teases out the latent sexuality in Lovecraft's use of ghouls. Caitlín R. Kiernan's "The Peddler's Tale" is one of the few successful elaborations of Lovecraft's dreamland stories, while Jonathan Thomas uses Lovecraft's native town of Providence for a tale of alien races. This volume contains previously unpublished stories by W. H. Pugmire, Mark Samuels, and Ray Garton, all of which demonstrate their authors' skill at fusing Lovecraftian motifs with their own dark vision. All in all, The Red Brain is a rich banquet of strangeness that no Lovecraft devotee will want to be without.
