A fantastic anthology by the true master of horror fiction. Highly recommended. Book Nutter's Book Reviews
This is an excellent collection of Lovecraft's 'zombie' stories, which serves both as a treat to old fans and a sampler to people who haven't read Lovecraft before. I would highly recommend this collection. Of Stacks and Cups
Joyce Carol Oates, Stephen King, and other experts on horror fiction deem H. P. Lovecraft the master teller of weird tales. These six chilling stories all published between 1921 and 1933 offer compelling journeys into the land of the undead.
The collection begins with The Outsider, the tale of a recluse whose overwhelming loneliness emboldens him to seek out human contact. Subsequent stories include Herbert WestReanimator, written as a satire of Frankenstein and used as the source for a popular horror film; In the Vault, in which an undertaker experiences supernatural revenge; Cool Air, an account of a doctor's fanatical obsession with defying death; and Pickman's Model, focusing on an artist's gallery of nightmares. The Thing on the Doorstep concludes the compilation with the compelling tale of a man whose body is preyed upon by a spirit that refuses to die.
Highly recommended. A great way to re-animate Lovecraft's standing as a master of the horror genre. Looking for a Good Book
A delightfully horrific collection of tales that will thrill any horror fan! A Universe in Words
