The Book (+Biography and Bibliography) (6X9po Glossy Cover Finish): " My memories are very confused. There is even much doubt as to where they begin; for at times I feel appalling vistas of years stretching behind me, while at other times it seems as if the present moment were an isolated point in a grey, formless infinity. I am not even certain how I am communicating this message. While I know I am speaking, I have a vague impression that some strange and perhaps terrible mediation will be needed to bear what I say to the points where I wish to be heard. My identity, too, is bewilderingly cloudy. I seem to have suffered a great shock- perhaps from some utterly monstrous outgrowth of my cycles of unique, incredible experience. "

El escritor norteamericano Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937), mejor conocido como H. P. Lovecraft, es uno de los autores más admirados del género de terror y de misterio en el siempre expansivo panorama de la literatura universal. Prácticamente desconocido durante su corta vida, el autor alcanzó la fama de manera póstuma por la incansable labor de sus colaboradores y editores. Estos consideraron que sus terroríficas creaciones y retorcidas historias debían ser leídas y apreciadas por un público más amplio, logrando convertirse con el tiempo en un referente de la literatura de terror y en la inspiración de innumerables autores. El “terror cósmico”, mitologías complejas y expansivas, la exploración de las profundidades del horror humano y el miedo a lo desconocido e incomprensible serían el sello de la mayoría de sus relatos y novelas cortas, todas ellas recopiladas en este volumen. La presente edición no incluye los relatos escritos junto a otros autores o aquellos que fueron terminados por otros escritores después de la muerte de Lovecraft.

H.P. Lovecraft es indudablemente, junto con Edgar Allan Poe, el gran maestro de la narrativa de terror. Su buen hacer ha dejado huella en innumerables escritores, cineastas y lectores de todo el mundo. En esta recopilación exclusiva hemos querido rescatar las obras maestras de este genio norteamericano, incluyendo clásicos inolvidables de su universo cósmico como La llamada de Cthulhu, El color surgido del espacio o La sombra sobre Innsmouth, así como cuentos encumbrados por la crítica o la masa social, entre los que destacamos Dagón y Los gatos de Ulthar. En total son veintidós narraciones extraordinarias que se apartan de la tradicional temática del terror sobrenatural —fantasmas, demonios, seres de ultratumba...— para incorporar nuevos elementos de la ciencia ficción —viajes en el tiempo, razas de otros planetas, nuevas dimensiones, mundos imaginarios. Un libro que le provocará, en la oscuridad de noche, cosquillas en la nuca, estremecimientos por todo el cuerpo y una mirada de desconfianza, pero que, con total seguridad, le dará algunos de los momentos de más placer con la lectura. Sin duda, esa es una de las razones por la cual sus cuentos han creado...

P. Lovecraft. In the tale, an unnamed narrator pieces together the story of an area known by the locals as the "blasted heath" in the wild hills west of Arkham, Massachusetts. The narrator discovers that many years ago a meteorite crashed there, poisoning every living being nearby; vegetation grows large but foul tasting, animals are driven mad and deformed into grotesque shapes, and the people go insane or die one by one. An unnamed surveyor from Boston, telling the story in the first-person perspective, attempts to uncover the secrets behind a shunned place referred to by the locals of Arkham as the "blasted heath." Unable to garner any information from the townspeople, the protagonist seeks out an old and allegedly crazy man by the name of Ammi Pierce, who relates his personal experiences with a farmer who used to live on the cursed property, Nahum Gardner.

"Ibid" is a story story by American horror fiction writer H. P. Lovecraft. Howard Phillips Lovecraft (August 20, 1890 - March 15, 1937) - known as H.P. Lovecraft - was an American author who achieved posthumous fame through his influential works of horror fiction. Virtually unknown and only published in pulp magazines before he died in poverty, he is now regarded as one of the most significant 20th-century authors in his genre. Lovecraft was born in Providence, Rhode Island, where he spent most of his life. His father was confined to a mental institution when Lovecraft was three years old. His grandfather, a wealthy businessman, enjoyed storytelling and was an early influence. Intellectually precocious but sensitive, Lovecraft began composing rudimentary horror tales by the age of eight, but suffered from overwhelming feelings of anxiety. He encountered problems with classmates in school, and was kept at home by his highly strung and overbearing mother for illnesses that may have been psychosomatic. In high school, Lovecraft was able to better connect with his peers and form friendships. He also involved neighborhood children in elaborate make-believe projects, only regretfully...

Profundo admirador de Poe y Dunsany, H. P. Lovecraft no escatima en esfuerzos por honrar y continuar la tradición de relatos macabros y oníricos que estos grandes maestros iniciaron. La escritura precisa y exquisita de los cuentos de Poe y la pasión por lo fantástico en Dunsany se conjugan en la novedosa propuesta del joven escritor, de cuya obra temprana este libro ofrece una cuidadosa selección (1919-1928). Aquí el lector no encontrará historias comunes de terror, no hay brujas o fantasmas que asechan al protagonista en la cabaña o en el bosque, nada de eso. Lo que descubrirá el lector es nada menos que horror cósmico: ese sentimiento experimentado por quien logra vislumbrar, durante un instante, la inmensidad del cosmos y los misterios que esconde. Esta experiencia desafía la concepción previa del universo y lanza al individuo hacia la locura, pues hay secretos que el ser humano no está en capacidad de comprender, secretos que revelan que el hombre es poco menos que nada, insignificante frente a criaturas cuya naturaleza está cifrada en las siguientes líneas:

The story takes place in Providence, Rhode Island and revolves around the Church of Starry Wisdom. The cult uses an ancient artifact known as the Shining Trapezohedron to summon a terrible being from the depths of time and space. The Shining Trapezohedron was discovered in Egyptian ruins, in a box of alien construction, by Professor Enoch Bowen before he returned to Providence, Rhode Island in 1844. Members of the Church of Starry Wisdom in Providence would awaken the Haunter of the Dark, an avatar of Nyarlathotep, by gazing into the glowing crystal. Summoned from the black gulfs of chaos, this being could show other worlds, other galaxies, and the secrets of arcane and paradoxical knowledge; but he demanded monstrous sacrifices, hinted at by disfigured skeletons that were later found in the church. The Haunter of the Dark was banished by light and could not cross a lighted area.

De La Tombe (1917) au Défi d'outre-espace (1935), voici, en trente et un contes et nouvelles, une palette très complète de l'inspiration de Lovecraft lorsqu'elle n'évoque pas le mythe de Cthulhu. L'argument de certaines de ces histoires annonce ce mythe à une époque où l'auteur ne l'avait pas encore cerné. D'autres témoignent de son génie pour renouveler avec un modernisme étonnant les archétypes du fantastique traditionnel: fantômes, vampires, sorcières, satanisme, nécrophilie... Les unes et les autres révèlent une maîtrise de l'atmosphère et un sens du récit faisant de Lovecraft l'un des plus grands auteurs fantastiques. Ce premier ensemble d'histoires est suivi par un second moins connu, car composé des travaux de " nègre " non signés par Lovecraft bien qu'il en soit l'auteur principal ou même unique. Ces deux ensembles de nouvelles sont complétés par Fungi de Yuggoth (cycle de poèmes fantastiques), par l'essai Epouvante et surnaturel en littérature, et par un choix de documents retraçant la vie de Lovecraft selon sa femme et selon ses proches amis.

The story traces the history of the eponymous street in a New England city, presumably Boston, from its first beginnings as a path in colonial times to a quasi-supernatural occurrence in the years immediately following World War I. As the city grows up around the street, it is planted with many trees and built along with "simple, beautiful houses of brick and wood," each with a rose garden. As the Industrial Revolution runs its course, the area degenerates into a run-down, polluted slum, with all of the street's old houses falling into disrepair.After World War I and the October Revolution, the area becomes home to a community of Jewish Russian immigrants; among the new residents are the leadership of a "vast band of terrorists" who are plotting the destruction of the United States on Independence Day. When the day arrives, the terrorists gather to do the deed, but before they can get started, all the houses in the street collapse concurrently on top of them, killing them all. An observer at the scene testified that immediately after the collapse, he had seen visions of the trees and the rose gardens that had once been in the street.

Su revolucionaria obra se aparta de la tradicional temática del terror sobrenatural —fantasmas, demonios, seres de ultratumba...— para incorporar nuevos elementos de la ciencia ficción —viajes en el tiempo, razas de otros mundos, nuevas dimensiones, mundos imaginarios. El autor estudia y se apropia de todos los recursos del género, los transforma y manipula a su voluntad y los lleva hasta el límite en los relatos de su universo de «horror cósmico», con una pasmosa facilidad que convence al lector, que queda fascinado ante la nueva estética que se le ofrece.

The Silver Key (+Biography and Bibliography) (6X9po Glossy Cover Finish): " When Randolph Carter was thirty he lost the key of the gate of dreams. Prior to that time he had made up for the prosiness of life by nightly excursions to strange and ancient cities beyond space, and lovely, unbelievable garden lands across ethereal seas; but as middle age hardened upon him he felt those liberties slipping away little by little, until at last he was cut off altogether. No more could his galleys sail up the river Oukranos past the gilded spires of Thran, or his elephant caravans tramp through perfumed jungles in Kled, where forgotten palaces with veined ivory columns sleep lovely and unbroken under the moon.

The stories in this book evoke a tracery of evil rarely rivaled in horror writing. They represent the whole evolving trajectory of such notions as Hastur, the King in Yellow, Carcosa, the Yellow Sign, the Black Stone, Yuggoth, and the Lake of Hali. A succession of writers from Ambrose Bierce to Ramsey Campbell and Karl Edward Wagner have explored and embellished these concepts so that the sum of the tales has become an evocative tapestry of hypnotic dread and terror, a mythology distinct from yet overlapping the Cthulhu Mythos. Here for the first time is a comprehensive collection of all the relevant tales.
