Of the many paperback collections of Lovecraft stories currently in print, this is one of our favorites. Edited by the celebrated Lovecraft scholar S.T. Joshi, this collection combines stories written throughout Lovecraft's career as a writer. It includes iconic tales like "The Call of Cthulhu", "The Colour Out of Space", and "The Whisperer in Darkness" along with terrific minor tales like "Celephaïs" and "The Picture in the House".
This collection is 360 pages and includes a total of eighteen stories. While the volume is a paperback, it features high end details like a fold-over front and back cover and deckled page edges. The cover art is particularly delightful, featuring a tentacle wrapping itself around the Penguin Books penguin.
