The Call of Cthulhu & Other Weird Stories

H. P. Lovecraft
Illustrated by Dan Hillier
Introduced by S. T. Joshi
Preface by Alan Moore

This collection, spanning Lovecraft’s literary career, marries his best-known short stories with two modern masters of the macabre, the acclaimed artist Dan Hillier and author Alan Moore.

The birth of the modern horror story can be traced to the dark visions that crept from the febrile imagination of H. P. Lovecraft at the beginning of the last century. The alien gods, death cults and forbidden tomes that cast their maddening shadows over his fictitious New England would introduce the world to a new set of terrors, reflecting the strange, uncaring universe being unravelled by physics and cosmology. These ‘weird’ tales, and their vast influence, have since carved for their creator a tentacle-shaped throne among the monoliths of American literature.
