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 1922 and 1937 - offer compelling journeys into the land of the undead: Herbert West-Reanimator, In the Vault, The Thing on the Doorstep, Pickman's Model, Cool Air, and The Outsider.
H. P. Lovecraft started his career writing poetry and essays, but turned to fiction in 1917 and found his niche as a writer of horror and the supernatural. Although he wasn't widely read during his lifetime, his reputation - and readership - grew quickly after his death in 1937. Often compared to Edgar Allan Poe, Lovecraft is considered to be one of the most important horror writers of the 20th century.
