I bought all 3 omnibuses from this printing way back in the late 90s. Over the years I have replaced them each at least once as they have been instrumental in the development of my deep admiration for American horror author H.P. Lovecraft.

So the decision to read and subsequently review a collection of stories by Lovecraft; an author famous for his chilling, supernatural and futuristic stories, seems a strange one. For some strange reason, I often feel the need to regularly ... Read the complete review
