Product description

About the Author

H. P. Lovecraft was born in Providence, Rhode Island, in the US in 1890. Influenced by various literary interests, first in the Tales of Arabian Nights, then Greek mythology and also gothic tales told to him by his grandfather, Lovecraft mixed these together with an interest in science and gave voice to his ideas in a series of dark tales of fantasy and horror. He suffered from ill health, at one point having a nervous breakdown, and he was unable to attend university, which was a huge disappointment to him. He died in 1937, but his legacy lives on in a body of work that has inspired countless films, TV series, board games and toys, as well as many other writers. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, attractive little set
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 5 October 2020
This is a very attractive set & for the price, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality.

The box is very thick card with a fabric top & a nice logo on the sides. The only disappointment is that the barcode is printed on the back of the box itself - such a pity it wasn't on a removable sticker or even a piece of paper within the clingfilm. Nevertheless, the back will usually not be visible when this set is displayed on a bookcase.

The books themselves are small - a good size to take with you while travelling. They are nicely bound with good quality paper & nice fabric covers which are a joy to touch & smell (and who doesn't like smelling new books?!). The title & the pattern on each front cover is also indented, making it even more tactile.

When I first came across Lovecraft's work, it was in the form of old paperbacks printed in (I think) the '50's or '60's which had titles such as 'The Dunwich Horror And Other Stories', just like this volume. But these are not collected in the same way. Here, the stories are collected by theme, so the more famous stories are kept together, as are the Randolph Carter stories & tales set in the dreamlands - which is a very good system. Another minor disappointment is that the introduction (which consists primarily of general background about Lovecraft) is the same in every book, except for one paragraph which relates to the book in question. As this is a set, it would have been nice to have a different intro for each one, which would have given the publishers a chance to provide more information. But it's the stories themselves which hare the stars of the show.

This is not a complete collection & nor does it claim to be. But all of Lovecraft's best & most influential works are here. Comparing the contents of this one to a complete collected volume which I also own, I do not feel that I have been short-changed in buying this set. Indeed, I am more likely to read this edition because having Lovecraft's work split into several smaller volumes instead of one breeze-block of a thing is much easier on my wrists, plus the fabric covers are a joy to hold. Recommended.

UPDATE - This box-set edition has a contents page in each volume (as per the photograph I have added) & page numbers. I presume that the reviews which say otherwise are referring to the Kindle version (which I have not seen, so don't know whether it has a contents page or not) of a different edition.
