It is a strange fact, for which I do not expect ever satisfactorily to account, and which will receive little credence even among those who know that I am not given to romancing-- it is a strange fact, I say, that the substance of the following pages has evolved itself during a period of six months, more or less, between the hours of midnight and four o'clock in the morning, proceeding directly from a type-writing machine standing in the corner of my library, manipulated by unseen hands. The machine is not of recent make. It is, in fact, a relic of the early seventies, which I discovered one morning when, suffering from a slight attack of the grip, I had remained at home and devoted my time to pottering about in the attic, unearthing old books, bringing to the light long-forgotten correspondences, my boyhood collections of "stuff," and other memory-inducing things. Whence the machine came originally I do not recall. My impression is that it belonged to a stenographer once in the employ of my father, who used frequently to come to our house to take down dictations. However this may be, the machine had lain hidden by dust and the flotsam and jetsam of the house for twenty years, when, as I have said, I came upon it unexpectedly. Old man as I am--I shall soon be thirty--the fascination of a machine has lost none of its potency.

In the Lovecraftian universe there exists many terrible and horrifying things, from extraterrestrial gods and ancient secrets to zealous cults, supernatural curses, and beyond. Perhaps some of the most terrifying imagery, however, originates from dreams or nightmares. Part of our "Fantasy and Horror Classics" imprint, this book contains a collection of Lovecraft's short horror stories all connected through the common theme of dreams. The collection includes: “The White Ship”, “The Doom That Came to Sarnath”, “Polaris”, “Nyarlathotep”, “The Cats of Ulthar”, “The Nameless City”, “Ex Oblivione”, “Celephaïs”, “Hypnos”, “What the Moon Brings”, “The Hound” ,”The Outsider”, “The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath”, “The Strange High House in the Mist”, “The Dreams in the Witch House”, and more. Other notable works by this author include: “At the Mountains of Madness”, “The Rats in the Walls”, and “The Shadow Over Innsmouth”. Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890–1937) was an American writer of supernatural horror fiction. Though his works remained largely unknown and did not furnish him with a decent living, Lovecraft is today considered to be among the most significant writers of supernatural horror fiction of the twentieth century. Read & Co. is publishing this classic collection of short stories now in a new edition complete with a dedication by George Henry Weiss.
