The Complete Works of H P Lovecraft Deluxe Library Binding Book Excerpt:

This complete collection of strange and unusual stories from H. P. Lovecraft features an array of dark and supernatural themes. Forbidden, esoterically veiled knowledge is at the forefront of many of Lovecraft's works, as well as non-human influences on humanity, inherited guilt, fate, civilization under threat, race, risks of a scientific era, religion, and superstition. Many of Lovecraft's stories were inspired by his nightmares. His interest in the supernatural started during his childhood days when his grandfather would tell him Gothic horror stories. In 1913, he wrote a critical letter to a pulp magazine that ultimately led to his involvement in pulp fiction. During the interwar period, he wrote and published stories that focused on his interpretation of humanity's place in the universe. In his view, humanity was an unimportant part of an uncaring cosmos that could be swept away at any moment. These stories also included fantastic elements that represented the perceived fragility of anthropocentrism.

The Ultimate H P Lovecraft Collection Book Excerpt:

“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability.” Howard Phillips Lovecraft, of Providence, Rhode Island, was an American author of horror, fantasy and science fiction. Lovecraft's major inspiration and invention was cosmic horror: life is incomprehensible to human minds and the universe is fundamentally alien. Those who genuinely reason, like his protagonists, gamble with sanity. Lovecraft has developed a cult following for his Cthulhu Mythos, a series of loosely interconnected fictions featuring a pantheon of human-nullifying entities, as well as the Necronomicon, a fictional grimoire of magical rites and forbidden lore. His works were deeply pessimistic and cynical, challenging the values of the Enlightenment, Romanticism and Christianity. Lovecraft's protagonists usually achieve the mirror-opposite of traditional gnosis and mysticism by momentarily glimpsing the horror of ultimate reality. Although Lovecraft's readership was limited during his life, his reputation has grown over the decades. He is now commonly regarded as one of the most influential horror writers of the 20th Century, exerting widespread and indirect influence, and frequently compared to Edgar Allan Poe. This 800-page jumbo book is the definitive collection for H.P. Lovecraft fans, containing his complete fiction as well as selected collaborations and essays. “That is not dead which can eternal lie,And with strange aeons even death may die.” Complete Fiction THE NAMELESS CITY DAGON THE CALL OF CTHULHU AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS THE SHUNNED HOUSE BEYOND THE WALL OF SLEEP THE DUNWICH HORROR THE ALCHEMIST THE LURKING FEAR MEMORY AZATHOTH THE MOON-BOG THE BEAST IN THE CAVE NYARLATHOTEP THE MUSIC OF ERICH ZANN THE BOOK THE OTHER GODS THE CASE OF CHARLES DEXTER WARD THE OUTSIDER THE CATS OF ULTHAR PICKMAN'S MODEL CELEPHAIS THE PICTURE IN THE HOUSE THE COLOUR OUT OF SPACE POLARIS COOL AIR THE QUEST OF IRANON THE RATS IN THE WALLS THE DESCENDANT THE SHADOW OUT OF TIME THE DOOM THAT CAME TO SARNATH THE SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH THE DREAM QUEST OF UNKNOWN KADATH DREAMS IN THE WITCH-HOUSE THE SILVER KEY THE STATEMENT OF RANDOLPH CARTER THE EVIL CLERGYMAN THE STRANGE HIGH HOUSE IN THE MIST EX OBLIVIONE THE STREET FACTS CONCERNING THE LATE ARTHUR JERMYN AND HIS FAMILY THE TEMPLE THE FESTIVAL THE TERRIBLE OLD MAN THE THING ON THE DOORSTEP FROM BEYOND THE TOMB THE HAUNTER OF THE DARK THE TRANSITION OF JUAN ROMERO HE THE TREE HERBERT WEST: REANIMATOR THE UNNAMABLE THE HORROR AT RED HOOK THE VERY OLD FOLK THE HOUND WHAT THE MOON BRINGS HYPNOS THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS IBID THE WHITE SHIP IMPRISONED WITH THE PHARAOS IN THE VAULT Selected Collaborations THE BATTLE THAT ENDED THE CENTURY COLLAPSING COSMOSES THE CRAWLING CHAOS WINGED DEATH THE HORROR AT MARTIN'S BEACH THE HOARD OF THE WIZARD-BEAST THE MAN OF STONE THE NIGHT OCEAN THE DISINTERMENT THE CURSE OF YIG METRICAL REGULARITY THE DESPISED PASTORAL Selected Essays AT THE ROOT THE ALLOWABLE RHYME NOTES ON WRITING WEIRD FICTION

Welcome to Arkham Asylum Book Excerpt:

Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane is a staple of the Batman universe, evolving into a franchise comprised of comic books, graphic novels, video games, films, television series and more. The Arkham franchise, supposedly light-weight entertainment, has tackled weighty issues in contemporary psychiatry. Its plotlines reference clinical and ethical controversies that perplex even the most up-to-date professionals. The 25 essays in this collection explore the significance of Arkham's sinister psychiatrists, murderous mental patients, and unethical geneticists. It invites debates about the criminalization of the mentally ill, mental patients who move from defunct state hospitals into expanding prisons, madness versus badness, sociopathy versus psychosis, the "insanity defense" and more. Invoking literary figures from Lovecraft to Poe to Caligari, the 25 essays in this collection are a broad-ranging and thorough assessment of the franchise and its relationship to contemporary psychiatry.

The Complete Weird Tales of H P Lovecraft Book Excerpt:

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 electronic tome collects together 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 volume.
