Product Details


It was not the creative work under his own byline that was H.P. Lovecraft s major source of income, but the revising of manuscripts submitted by hopeful authors, young and old, that supplied enough income to enable him to eke out a living. Some of these manuscripts were in Lovecraft s own favorite field, that of the macabre, and with these he went to especial pains to produce salable work-even to the extent of completely rewriting many of them and, in the course of so doing, subsuming some of them into the Cthulhu Mythos. This omnibus collection brings together all these revisions and in the main belongs solidly in the Lovecraft canon: The Green Meadow and The Crawling Chaos by Elizabeth Berkeley and Lewis Theobald; The Last Test and The Electric Executioner by Adolphe de Castro; The Curse of Yig, The Mound, and Medusa s Coil by Zealia Bishop; The Man of Stone, The Horror in the Museum, Winged Death, Out of the Aeons, and The Horror in the Burying-Ground by Hazel Heald; The Diary of Alonzo Typer by William Lumley; The Horror at Martin s Beach by Sonia H. Greene; Ashes, The Ghost-Eater, The Loved Dead, and Deaf, Dumb, and Blind by C.M. Eddy Jr.; Two Black Bottles by Wilfred Blanch Talman; The Trap by Henry S. Whitehead; The Tree on the Hill and The Disinterment by Duane W. Rimel; Till A the Seas and The Night Ocean by R.H. Barlow. Jacket by Tony Patrick, fifth printing by S.T. Joshi.
