At the heart of these stories, as with all the best of Lovecraft’s work, is the belief that the Earth was once inhabited by powerful and evil gods, just waiting for the chance to recolonise their planet. Cthulhu is one such god, lurking deep beneath the sea until called into being by cult followers who – like all humans – know not what they do. It is because of these dark, mythic tales with their terrified awareness of the limits of Man’s knowledge, that H.P. Lovecraft is one of the most influential American writers.

Howard Phillips Lovecraft: The Call of Cthulhu (Unabridged)

1: The Horror in Clay

The bas-relief was a rough rectangle…

It was then that he began that rambling tale…

Here the first part of the manuscript ended.

2: The Tale of Inspector Legrasse

And yet, as the members severally shook their heads…

So a body of twenty police, filling two carriages…

Actually, the horrified pause of the men…

Old Castro remembered bits of hideous legend…

The feverish interest aroused at the meeting…

3: The Madness from the Sea

March 1st – or February 28th…

It was a simple, rambling thing…

Johansen and his men landed at a sloping mud-bank…

Steam had not been suffered to go down entirely…

Howard Phillips Lovecraft: The Hound (Unabridged)

The Hound

By what malign fatality were we lured…

Less than a week after our return to England…

Being now afraid to live alone in the ancient house…

Howard Phillips Lovecraft: The Dunwich Horror (Unabridged)

Introduction

1: When a traveller in North Central Massachusetts…

No one, even those who have the facts…

2: It was in the township of Dunwich…

In the spring after Wilbur's birth…

3: Meanwhile Old Whateley…

The following months were void of visible events…

4: For a decade the annals of the Whateleys sink…

Wilbur was by this time a scholar…

5: The following winter brought an event no less strange…

Dr. Armitage, associating what he was reading…

6: The Dunwich horror itself came…

As the presence of the three men…

7: Yet all this was only the prologue…

By that noon…

When night came again…

8: In the meantime…

On the morning of September 4th…

9: Friday morning Artmitage, Rice and Morgan…

Morning came wanly…

Armitage saw that the time for positive action had come…

10: In the end the three men from Arkham…

Suddenly the sunshine seemed to lessen…

The stench left quickly…

Howard Phillips Lovecraft: Dagon (Unabridged)

Dagon

On the third morning…

It was the pictorial carving…
