about this item

A collection of macabre tales from master of horror H.P. Lovecraft, including Reanimator—considered to be one of the zombie stories ever published
Take a walk on the dark side and discover an array of disturbing, often forgotten horror classics from master of weird fiction, H. P. Lovecraft, best known for creating "The Call of Cthulhu." Herbert West is a medical student with an unusual passion: reanimating dead bodies. Consumed by his obsessive experiments, West eventually manages to bring people back to life using a special serum he has created. But he has no idea of the horror he will unleash with the zombies he creates—or rather, an army of monsters, who are out for revenge. This spine-chilling volume also collects some of Lovecraft’s most striking stories about the undead and other terrifying people, from the traveler who takes refuge in an abandoned house, only to be confronted by an enigmatic man with a horrifying past in "The Picture in the House;" to the trio who fatally underestimate a local villager who seems more eccentric than harmless in "The Terrible Old Man." Discover the truth behind why the killing of cats is forbidden in one particular town in "The Cats of Ulthar" and what happens when a day-dreaming boy stumbles upon a tomb with his name on it in "The Tomb."
