Explore the marvelous complexity of Lovecraft's writing--including his use of literary allusions, biographical details, and obscure references in this rich, in-depth exploration of great horror fiction from the acknowledged master of the weird, including the stories "Herbert West--Reanimator", "Pickman's Model", "The Call of Cthulhu", "The Thing on the Doorstep", "The Horror at Red Hook" and more. Did Lovecraft believe in ghosts or paranormal phenomena? In what story does the narrator fear riding the Boston T? A pathfinder in the literary territory of the macabre, H.P. Lovecraft is one of America's giants of the horror genre. Now, in this second volume of annotated tales, Lovecraft scholars S. T. Joshi and Peter Cannon provide another rare opportunity to look into the mind of a genius. Their extensive notes lift the veil between real events in the writer's life--such as the death of his father--and the words that spill out onto the page in magnificent grotesquerie. Mansions, universities, laboratories, and dank New England boneyards appear also as the haunts where Lovecraft's characters confront the fabulous and fantastic, or--like the narrator in "Herbert West--Reanimator"--dig up fresh corpses. Richly illustrated and scrupulously researched, this extraordinary work adds exciting levels of meaning to Lovecraft's chilling tales . . . and increases our wonder at the magic that transforms life into a great writer's art.… (més)

A great sampling of four of Lovecraft's stories. This volume contains heavily annotated versions of "The Rats in the Walls," "The Colour out of Space," "The Dunwich Horror" and "At the Mountains of Madness."

This is my second time reading this and this time I read it without referring to the annotations. You really have to decide how you want to read this book before going in. The annotations are excellent and incredibly informative, but sometimes it feels there's as much annotation as there is actual text to the stories! This sounds like a knock but the annotations are worth having, just know what you're getting into going in: do you want a scholarly read or do want to soak in the eldritch ooze that is Lovecraft?

The three short stories are excellent and "At the Mountains of Madness" is a good story but felt a little long with a lot of scientific mumbo-jumbo that could (and probably should) have been trimmed. It's essential Lovecraft, but it really highlights why his shorter stories work best.

Overall a well researched and intriguing read. Highly recommended if you have anything beyond a casual interest in Lovecraft. ( )

The annotations made reading Lovecraft a bit easier. ( )

Highly recommended for any fans of Lovecraft, even though there's a good chance that you may already have read (and own) the stories in the collection. The stories included are "The Rats in the Walls," "The Colour Out of Space," "The Dunwich Horror," and "At The Mountains of Madness." All four are footnoted, which provides some insight into Lovecraft's influence, his language, and the intertextuality of his stories. Also includes some excerpts from Lovecraft's letters regarding his theories on weird fiction, some quotes from authors influenced by Lovecraft, and a summary of Lovecraft and Lovecraftian movies circa mid-1990s.

I've had this book for a couple of years and I always go back to read a story I haven't gotten to yet. Some of my favorite Lovecraft tales are included -- The Rats In The Walls, The Dunwich Horror, and the Colour Out of Space. ( )

I would particularly recommend this volume to readers, not only because the chosen stories are particularly indicative of Lovecraft’s style, but also because of the excellent annotations of S.T. Joshi. The annotations were educational, and also entertaining in their own right. They are particularly helpful in recognizing which places and theories are factual and which ones were completely fabricated by Lovecraft. Joshi’s annotations would also be very useful for the uninitiated reader who is trying to fathom the complex Cthulhu mythology that permeates many Lovecraft stories. In short, a fun and informative read.
