WIKIPEDIA says: 'H.P. Lovecraft's reputation has grown tremendously over the decades, and he is now commonly regarded as one of the most important horror writers of the 20th century, exerting an influence that is widespread, though often indirect.'

H.P. Lovecraft's tales of the tentacled Elder God Cthulhu and his pantheon of alien deities were initially written for the pulp magazines of the 1920s and '30s. These astonishing tales blend elements of horror, science fiction and cosmic terror that are as powerful today as they were when they were first published.

This handsome tome collects together the very best of Lovecraft's tales of terror, including the complete Cthulhu Mythos cycle, just the way they were originally published. It will introduce a whole new generation of readers to Lovecraft's fiction, as well as being a must-buy for those fans who want all his work in a single, definitive, highly attractive volume.

I read this for the "A Gothic Fiction Novel" part of my 2019 reading challenge. I should have picked something else, I rarely like short stories or science fiction. Many of these stories were slow and had similar plots. A few were very similar to Frankenstein. Overall, not my cup of tea.

Very cool collection of weird stories. Some where scary and some were just really, really weird. However, the writing is just too..."Old" for me. So, in conclusion, this book is good. But not great.
