H. P. Lovecraft - The ​Call of Cthulhu and Other Stories
Howard ​Phillips Lovecraft (1890 - 1937) was an American author who achieved posthumous fame through his influential works of horror fiction. He was virtually unknown and published only in pulp magazines before he died in poverty, but 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. Among his most celebrated tales are "The Call of Cthulhu" and “The Shadow over Innsmouth", both canonical to the Cthulhu Mythos.

H. P. Lovecraft - The ​Shadow Over Innsmouth
Rumours ​abound of sinister goings-on in the ancient Massachusetts seaport of Innsmouth. The once prosperous town, which has fallen into a state of decrepitude and decay, is a stopover destination for Robert Olmstead, a young historian on a tour of the region. Despite hearing ominous tales of the town and its grotesque inhabitants, Olmstead feels compelled to explore Innsmouth. He finds the place almost deserted, except for a few inhospitable locals with strange, unblinking eyes - the so-called, Innsmouth Look. He meets the town drunk, Zadok Allen, who tells him the terrifying history of the town, about Devil Reef and mutant humanoids, sea gods, gold, and human sacrifice. The deranged ramblings of a madman? As night falls on Innsmouth, Olmstead soon has cause to wonder. The Shadow Over Innsmouth is an integral part of what has become known as H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos.

H. P. Lovecraft - The ​Case of Charles Dexter Ward
A ​young man cursed by the ultimate invocation of evil. Incantations of black magis unearthed unspeakable horrors in a quiet town near Providence, Rhode Island. Evil spirits - whose memory lived on in half-understood legends and vile superstitions - lurked in underground caverns... waiting to be unleashed. Driven by the spirit of his dead ancestor, a master of the black arts, Ward delved into his forbidden past and resurrected the darkest evil from beyond the grave... a supernatural force so gruesomely relentless that it twists gentius to madness and kills without offering the mercy of death.

H. P. Lovecraft - Hüter ​der Pforten
Der ​so genannte Cthulhu-Mythos erfreut sich in letzter Zeit immer größerer Beliebtheit; nach dem von Frank Festa herausgegebene Band Der Cthulhu-Mythos 1917-1975 in H.P. Lovecrafts Bibliothek des Schreckens folgt das sehr geschmackvoll aufgemachte Taschenbuch Hüter der Pforten. H.P. Lovecraft, der Schöpfer des Mythos, hat Zeit seines Lebens Freunde und Kollegen aufgefordert, an seinem Mythos mitzustricken, doch welche ungeheuren Ausmaße dies nach seinem Tod im März 1937 annehmen würde, konnte er sich in seinen kühnsten Träumen nicht ausmalen. Zahllos sind die Cthulhu-Erzählungen der Welt bis heute, und viele von ihnen bieten wenig mehr als einen billigen Abklatsch von Lovecrafts Erzählungen, ohne seiner Vorstellung eines "kosmischen Grauens" nahe zu kommen. Allerdings gelingt dies dem allergrößten Teil der 22 in Hüter der Pforten enthaltenen Geschichten. Nach einem unterhaltsamen Vorwort von James Turner werden nicht einfach die Versatzstücke Tentakelmonster, Verderben bringende Bücher und okkulte Verschwörungen ideenlos kombiniert, sondern hier ist Originalität und Esprit am Werk -- oder zumindest kreativer Umgang mit Lovecrafts Schöpfung. So führt Ramsey Campbell den Leser in einen seltsamen Laden mit Literatur für Erwachsene und noch ganz andere Bücher. Colin Wilson bietet eine fantastische Entzifferung des Necronomicons und einige intensive Momente, die sich dem eigentlichen Kern des Mythos, Lovecrafts Pessimismus, annehmen. Der junge Robert Bloch lässt ein Alter Ego seines Mentors Lovecraft augenzwinkernd zu Tode kommen, woraufhin dieser sich mit "Der leuchtende Trapezoeder" revanchiert. Philip José Farmer begleitet ein schon betagteres Erstsemester an der berüchtigten Miskatonic University auf die Veranstaltung einer seltsamen Studentenverbindung. Stephen King schickt "Briefe aus Jerusalem", wo ein schrecklicher Familienfluch lauert. Der originellste Text stammt von Richard A. Lupoff, der im Jahr 2337 drei Astronauten zum neu entdeckten zehnten Planeten unseres Sonnensystems fliegen lässt -- Yuggoth, wo Lovecrafts Schoggothen leben. Einfach großartig. In Hüter der Pforten wird Lovecrafts kosmisches Grauen geatmet, hier lebt der Cthulhu-Mythos. Man merkt den Autoren bei all dem literarischen Grauen den Spaß an, mit dem sie die Geschichten zu Papier gebracht haben, man fühlt ihre Begeisterung für Lovecrafts Werk, und ihren Willen, in seinem Kosmos etwas eigenes zu schaffen. Und das ist den meisten gelungen. --Boris Koch

H. P. Lovecraft - The ​Classic Horror Stories
H. ​P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) was a reclusive scribbler of horror stories for the American pulp magazines that specialized in Gothic and science fiction in the interwar years. He often published in Weird Tales and has since become the key figure in the slippery genre of "weird fiction." Lovecraft developed an extraordinary vision of feeble men driven to the edge of sanity by glimpses of malign beings that have survived from human prehistory or by malevolent extra-terrestrial visitations. The ornate language of his stories builds towards grotesque moments of revelation, quite unlike any other writer. This new selection brings together nine of his classic tales, focusing on the "Cthulhu Mythos," a cycle of stories that develops the mythology of the Old Ones, the monstrous creatures who predate human life on earth. The stories collected here include some of Lovecraft's finest, including "The Call of Cthulhu," "At the Mountains of Madness," "The Dunwich Horror," "The Colour Out of Space," "The Shadow over Innsmouth," and "The Shadow out of Time." The volume also includes vital extracts from Lovecraft's critical essay, "Supernatural Horror in Literature," in which he gave his own important definition of "weird fiction." In a fascinating introduction, Roger Luckhurst gives Lovecraft the attention he deserves as a writer who used pulp fiction to explore a remarkable philosophy that shockingly dethrones the mastery of man.

H. P. Lovecraft - The ​Annotated H. P. Lovecraft
H.P. ​Lovecraft, acknowledged master of the horror genre, left a legacy of great short fiction. Unsurpassed in their richness of imagination and range of knowledge, these chilling tales are a brilliant writer's creative response to a world in which he was often an outsider. Now readers have an opportunity to scrutinize and further appreciate the greatness of Lovecraft's strange genius as Lovecraft scholar S.T. Joshi annotates, for the first time, some of Lovecraft's most famous tales. S.T. Joshi's text illuminates the more obscure references throughout Lovecraft's writings, from an explanation of the chemicals referred to in "The Dunwich Horror" to the definition of one of his favorite adjectives, "eldritch." Readers will also discover which story details are wholly fabricated by H.P. Lovecraft and which are taken from real life, such as the "Moodus Noises" and "Garden of the Gods." Generously illustrated, this remarkable work lets us fully appreciate the awesome details of the author's imagined reality while it helps deepen our enjoyment of the unrivaled master of the weird.

H. P. Lovecraft - The ​Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories
An ​unparalleled selection of fiction from H. P. Lovecraft, master of the American horror tale Long after his death, H. P. Lovecraft continues to enthrall readers with his gripping tales of madness and cosmic terror, and his effect on modern horror fiction continues to be felt--Stephen King, Anne Rice, and Clive Barker have acknowledged his influence. His unique contribution to American literature was a melding of Poe's traditional supernaturalism with the emerging genre of science fiction. Originally appearing in pulp magazines like Weird Tales in the 1920s and 1930s, Lovecraft's work is now being regarded as the most important supernatural fiction of the twentieth century. Lovecraft's biographer and preeminent interpreter, S. T. Joshi, has prepared this volume of eighteen stories--from the early classics like "The Outsider" and "Rats in the Wall" to his mature masterworks, "The Call of Cthulhu" and "The Shadow over Innsmouth." The first paperback to include the definitive corrected texts, The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories reveals the development of Lovecraft's mesmerizing narrative style, and establishes him as a canonical--and visionary--American writer.

H. P. Lovecraft - Az ​őrület hegyei
___ ​„H. P. Lovecraft írásaira csak kényszeredetten húzhatjuk rá a „horror” megnevezést, mert talán még ehhez állnak a legközelebb. Valójában egyszerre tekinthetők rémtörténeteknek, gótikus mesének, fantasynak és olykor sci-finek is. Mikor Lovecraft alkotott a húszas-harmincas években, ezek a kategóriák még nem különültek el egymástól olyan élesen, mint manapság. Leginkább a „dark fantasy” kifejezést használhatnánk erre a jellegzetesen lovecrafti, komor és vészjósló stílusra. ___Lovecraft rémtörténetei azért különlegesek a maguk nemében, mert nemcsak az emberi elme felszínét borzolják föl néhány rövid pillanatig, hanem mélyen belemarnak a csontokba és az idegekbe. Az emberi képzelőerőre gyakorolt hatásukkal számos jeles pszichoanalitikai tanulmány foglalkozik, és ezek többé-kevésbé mind arra a megállapításra jutnak, hogy e történetek közvetlenül a tudatalattiból váltanak ki bizonyos reakciókat. Elbeszéléseinek megvan az a jellegzetessége, hogy a lehető legvisszataszítóbb és legiszonyatosabb képzelettársításokra késztetik az embert. Művei igen gyakran megmagyarázhatatlan szorongást keltenek, sőt az is előfordult, hogy fizikai rosszulléthez vezettek.

H. P. Lovecraft - Az ​ősi út és a hírnök versei
Sorozatunkban ​szeretnénk bemutatni a XX. század első felének amerikai fantasztikus irodalmából az - erre érdemes - ismeretlen szerzők írásait, valamint az ismert kedvencek még meg nem jelent egyes műveit. Jelen kötettel a ma már legendás alkotónak számító H. P. Lovecraft verseinek eddigi legbővebb magyar nyelvű válogatását adjuk, párhuzamos angol és magyar szöveggel.

H. P. Lovecraft - Howard ​Phillips Lovecraft összes művei III.
Howard ​Phillips Lovecraft életműve, pályatársai zömétől eltérően, nem merült feledésbe: újra és újra kiadják, nem csupán hazájában, hanem külföldön - így Magyarországon - is. Lovecraft öröksége a mai napig eleven: világképének hátterére számtalan új írásmű születik az általa teremtett stílusban. Követői értelmezik és átértelmezik Lovecraftot, s nem mellékes körülmény, hogy soraikat a kortárs irodalom talán legnagyobb alakja, Jorge Luis Borges nyitotta meg. Lovecraft önmagát mindig Poe és Bierce követőjének tekintette. Sajátos világképének kialakításán - mely összetéveszthetetlen ízt kölcsönöz írásainak - roppant tudatosan dolgozott az irodalmi előképek kutatását is beleértve, melyről egy terjedelmes esszében is számot ad. Felfogásának lényege dióhéjban annyi, hogy megfosztotta a rémtörténetet a késő középkorból örökölt misztikus sallangoktól, s helyükre egy jellegzetesen modern életérzést állított: azt a fajta hideg iszonyatot, ami az embert a gigantikus, személytelen világegyetemmel szembesülve tölti el. A gondviselés illúziójától megfosztott egyén pánikreakciója ez, aki rádöbben, hogy magára hagyottan áll ebben a világban, amelynek szempontjából teljesen mindegy, hogy él-e, hal-e. A szörnyek - a hideg kozmosz megszemélyesítései az írói síkon - valójában abszolút közönyösek; az egyes ember - sőt, az egész emberi faj - semmiféle jelentőséggel nem bír számukra. És persze éppen ez bennük az iszonyatos; sokkalta iszonyatosabb, mint bármiféle szimpla gonosz lélek a keresztény kultúrkör naivan kétosztatú hiedelemvilágából. Szándékunk az volt, hogy sorozatunkkal Lovecraft irodalmi munkásságáról nyújtsunk hiteles és átfogó képet. Jelen összeállításunk a második darabja annak a háromkötetes gyűjteménynek, mellyel a színvonalas és áttekinthető Lovecraft-összkiadás hiányát kívánjuk pótolni, remélhetőleg az olvasóközönség megelégedésére.

Lovecraft collects the author's novel, four novellas, and fifty-three short stories.

H. P. Lovecraft - The ​Dreams in the Witch House and Other Weird Stories
One ​of the masters of 'weird fiction', H. P. Lovecraft expanded the vast boundaries of the horror genre with his vividly imagined stories of exotic and fantastical otherworlds, nightmarish dreamscapes or the supernatural terrors lurking beneath the surface of small-town America. The shadow of New England's witch-hunting past hangs over many of the tales, as in 'The Shunned House' and 'The Dreams in the Witch House', in which malevolent spectres return to haunt the region. Others, such as 'Far Beyond' and 'The Shadow Out of Time', depict the catastrophic results when cosmic channels of time and space are opened, while stories such as 'Polaris' and 'The Doom that Came to Sarnath' portray the downfall os mythical civilizations.

H. P. Lovecraft - Cthulhu ​hívása
Egykor ​voltak a Nagyok, akik saját szárnyukon repülve érkeztek a végtelen űrből, és korokon át uralták ezt a világot… Egykor voltak a szörny-istenek, akik eltávoztak, hogy majdan visszatérjenek… Egykor volt Kadath, a pusztaság közepén álló város, melynek rideg kőfalai közt máig visszhangzik Cthulhu hívása Az amerikai „sötét” irodalom Ambrose Bierce-hoz fogható óriása, Howard Phillips Lovecraft klasszikus történeteinek gyűjteménye e kötet. Szerzőjét „mesterének” tekinti a Pszicho írója, Robert Bloch, és Stephen King, a modern horror koronázatlan királya is.

H. P. Lovecraft - Onnan ​túlról
Howard ​Phillips Lovecraft (1890‒1937) a nagy elődök (elsősorban Edgar Allan Poe és Ambrose Bierce) nyomdokain haladva összetéveszthetetlen stílust, hovatovább mítoszt teremtett – a „kozmikus rettenet” irodalmát, melyben az emberi élet iránt totálisan közömbös természetfeletti erők felbukkanása egész modern civilizációnk-történelmünk létjogosultságát kérdőjelezi meg. Lovecraft életműve az egyedülálló rémtörténetek kimeríthetetlen bőségszaruja: számottevő hatással volt napjaink legnépszerűbb fantasy-horror szerzőire (Clive Barkertől Neil Gaimanen át egészen Stephen Kingig), világszerte kultikus rajongással övezett műveit évről évre filmek, képregények, valamint video- és társasjátékok légiója dolgozza fel. Válogatásunk Lovecraft tizenegy rövidebb-hosszabb elbeszélését idézi meg; az angolszász horrorirodalom mára megkerülhetetlen klasszikusainak számító történeteket, valamint a szerző néhány kevésbé ismert, ám nem kevésbé vérfagyasztó és elgondolkodtató írását.

H. P. Lovecraft - The ​Randolph Carter Tales
Carter ​is a quiet and melancholy dreamer with a sensitive disposition, prone to fainting during times of emotional stress. But he can also be courageous, with enough strength of mind and character to face and foil the horrific creatures of the Dreamlands. Randolph Carter is an antiquarian and one-time student of the Miskatonic University. Based on clues from various stories, he was probably born around 1874 and grew up in and around Boston. At the age of nine, he underwent a mysterious experience at his great-uncle Christopher's farm and thereafter exhibited a gift of prophecy. He is the descendant of Sir Randolph Carter, who had studied magic during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I of England. Sir Randolph had then emigrated to America and his son Edmund Carter later had to flee the Salem witch-trials. Carter also had an ancestor involved in one of the Crusades, who was captured by the Muslims and learned ""wild secrets"" from them. This volume contains all of H P Lovecraft's stories about Randolph Carter.

H. P. Lovecraft - A ​suttogó Cthulhu
H. ​P. Lovecraft minden idők legnagyobb rémtörténet írója. A Cthulhu mítosz méltán tette világhíressé, hiszen Stephen King mellett, ez a mű termékenyítette meg Clive Barker, Robert Bloch, és még számtalan híresség fantáziáját. "Nagyon is elképzelhető, hogy valamely roppant Hatalmak vagy Lények életben maradtak, még azokból a távoli időkből, amikor az értelem talán más formákban öltött testet, olyan formákban, amelyek eltűntek a világból az emberiség hajnala előtt, s amelyekről csupán a költészet és a mondák őriztek meg futó emlékképeket, isteneknek, szörnyeknek, mitikus lényeknek nevezve őket."

H. P. Lovecraft - Kenneth J. Sterling - In ​the Walls of Eryx
"In ​the Walls of Eryx" is a short story by H.P. Lovecraft, written in January 1936 and first published in Weird Tales magazine in October 1939. It is unusual among Lovecraft's work as a standard science fiction story involving space exploration in the near future.

H. P. Lovecraft - The ​Ancient Track
H. ​P. Lovecraft is best known for his fiction, but he spent a great portion of his creative energy on his poetry. The Ancient Track collects the complete poetry of one of the twentieth centuries most iconic writers. The great majority of these poems were written between 1914, and 1920, the period of Lovecraft's heaviest concentration on poetry. Lovecraft's poetry may be regarded as the lesser of is literary output, but it merits collection precisely because it is an important ancillary to his other more well known forms of creative endeavor. Prior to the publication of The Ancient Track, Lovecraft's poetry had been scattered across several different volumes whose textual accuracy has not always been exemplary, while several pomes had been uncollected. "This is an essential tome for every self-respecting Lovecraftian..." - Publishers Weekly
