“They were removing the stones quietly, one by one, from the centuried wall. And then, as the breach became large enough, they came out into the laboratory in single file; led by a stalking thing with a beautiful head made of wax.’
From the dark, mind-expanding imagination of H P Lovecraft, included here are some of his weirdest flesh-creeping masterpieces, including ‘Pickman’s Model’, ‘The Shunned House’, his famous serial ‘Herbert West, Reanimator’, and several classic tales from the Cthulhu Mythos, in which mankind is subjected to the unimaginable terrors known only to those who have read from the forbidden Necronomicon. Also included in this compelling collection are the complete Randolph Carter stories, chronicling his adventures in this world and the realm of his dreams, where he faces perils beyond comprehension.
Volume three in Wordsworth Classics’ set of Lovecraft, selected and Introduced by M J Elliott.
