The Horror in the Museum
H P Lovecraft


“My eyes, perversely shaken open, gazed for an instant upon a sight which no human creature could even imagine without panic, fear and physical exhaustion…”

A wax museum in London boasts a new exhibit, which no man has seen and remained sane; a businessman is trapped in a train carriage with a madman who claims to have created a new and efficient method of capital punishment; a doctor plans a horrible revenge, using as his murder weapon an insect believed capable of consuming the human soul. Within these pages, some of H P Lovecraft’s more obscure works of horror and science fiction can be found, including several fantastic tales from his celebrated Cthulhu Mythos.

Volume two in Wordsworth Classics’ set of Lovecraft, selected and Introduced by M J Elliott.
