This Wordsworth Edition includes an exclusive Introduction by M.J. Elliott.
“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. No true Lovecraft aficionado dare be without this volume.
The majority of the stories in this edition appeared previously in The Loved Dead (ISBN 9781840226225)
