From "The Call of Cthulhu" -the first tale in which Lovecraft set down the outlines of the Cthulhu Mythos- to such a remarkable recent work as Colin Wilson's long novella, "The Return of the Lloigor;" never before published, almost a score of stories demonstrate the fascination that Lovecraft's Mythos has had for other writers, many of whom have made significant contributions to it. These remarkable tales include, too, and for the first time together, that gruesome trilogy inaugurated by Robert Bloch in "The Shambler From the Stars," answered by H.P. Lovecraft with "The Haunter of the Dark," and rebutted by Bloch in "The Shadow from the Steeple." Here are such flights of imagination as Clark Ashton Smith's "Ubbo-Sathla" and "The Return of the Sorcerer," Robert E. Howard's "The Black Stone," Frank Belknap Long's "The Hounds of Tindalos" and "The Space-Eaters," August Derleth's "The Dweller in Darkness" and "Beyond the Threshold," Robert Bloch's "Notebook Found in a Deserted House," Henry Kuttner's "The Salem Horror"-and such never-before published tales as J. Vernon Shea's "The Haunter of the Graveyard," J. Ramsey Campbell's "Cold Print," Brian Lumley's "The Sister City" and "Cement Surroundings," and James Wade's "The Deep Ones."

Binding is firm with just the slightest hints of shelf wear to the edges of the deep Holliston Black Novelex cloth. The eggshell pages are as bright as the day of issue with no toning, sunning, or foxing present. Jacket is crisp. Minor bump to the head. Reverse shows some discoloration from age but does not in any way affect the artwork. Slight halo of tanning around the edges of the back and on the flaps.
