Welcome to ultimate darkness…
In the century since master of horror H. P. Lovecraft published his first story, the horrors that slithered out of his brain have become legend: alien, tentacle-faced Cthulhu, who sleeps beneath the sea awaiting his moment to rise; demonic Azathoth, mad beyond imagining, who lies babbling at the center of the universe; the nightmarish Deep Ones, who come to shore to breed with mortal men; Hastur, whose very name brings death. These creatures have fueled generations of horror writers, inspiring some of their greatest works.
This chilling anthology celebrates Lovecraft’s most famous creations in all their grotesque glory. Each story offers a gripping new take on a classic mythos creature, affectionately accompanied by an illuminating illustration that captures the monsters’ unique visage. Within these accursed pages, something unnatural slouches from the sea into an all-night diner; the Hounds of Tindalos, trapped in human bodies, haunt pool halls hoping to lure fools into the dark. Strange, haunting, and undeniably monstrous, this is Lovecraft as you have never seen him before.
Legions of Lovecraft fans continue to visit his bizarre landscapes and encounter his unrelenting monsters. Now join them in their journey… if you dare.
