The Call of Cthulhu

And Other Stories

5 April 2022

Description

The essential literary collection of H.P. Lovecraft’s ten finest short stories, from the celebrated editor of the two-volume New Annotated H.P. Lovecraft

Devoured by the Lovecraftian community and general readers alike, Leslie S. Klinger’s best-selling The New Annotated H.P. Lovecraft, Volumes I and II were hailed as classics of the genre. Now Klinger returns with the ideal annotated primer not only for Lovecraft devotees eager for a more portable version but also students, literature-lovers and curious newcomers looking for a scare.

In “Dagon”, one of Lovecraft’s earliest stories, the terrifying idea of an unknown being at the bottom of the ocean is introduced for the first time; in “The Call of Cthulhu”, the horror spreads beyond the sea. The iconic “Rats in the Walls” relates a journey into the depths of a haunted house and mind, while “The Outsider” is a twisted tale that will make the reader question everything. A necessity for any library, The Call of Cthulhu and Other Stories is an indispensable companion for anyone looking to experience a master at the height of his craft.


A paperback original.

Reviews

"
Praise for The New Annotated H.P. Lovecraft, Volumes I and II:
Norton’s new volume must surely be the definitive collection. It is meticulously and imaginatively edited, beautifully illustrated and immaculately produced, with a thought-stirring introduction by the graphic novel writer Alan Moore." — New Statesman

"Perfect for anyone who enjoys exploring the outer regions of the imagination—and guaranteed to give you the shivers on a cold winter’s night." — Sarah Vine, Daily Mail

"Klinger’s depth of knowledge about the world Lovecraft inhabited, and his ability to tease out shades of Lovecraft’s personal experiences in the stories, make this volume the most exciting and definitive collection of Lovecraft’s work out there." — Danielle Trussoni, The New York Times Book Review

"Annotator Les Klinger is the man you want to have by your side, as you explore the Lovecraftian Darkness." — Neil Gaiman
