H.P. Lovecraft's Book of the Supernatural: 20 Classics of the Macabre, Chosen by the Master of Horror Himself (2012)
Cover by John Picacio

Written by one of the most important writers of the twentieth century, H.P. Lovecraft's 'Supernatural Horror in Literature' traces the evolution of the genre from its mythological roots and the early Gothic novels through to the work of contemporary American, British and European authors. Throughout, Lovecraft acknowledges those authors and stories that he felt were the very finest the horror field has to offer. For the first time on audio, World Fantasy Award-winning editor Stephen Jones proudly presents the twenty classic tales by Lovecraft's favorite authors, including Washington Irving, Robert Louis Stevenson, Guy de Maupassant, Edgar Allan Poe, Ambrose Beierce, Rudyard Kipling, Lafcadio Hearn, Bram Stoker, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, William Hope Hodgson and Arthur Machen, each prefaced by Lovecraft's own opinions and insights in their work. This chilling collection also contains Henry James' wonderfully atmospheric short novel The Turn of the Screw, while H.P. Lovecraft himself contributes a fascinating Foreword in which he gives his own advice on how to successfully write weird fiction. For every fan of modern horror, here is an opportunity to rediscover the roots of the genre with some of the most terrifying stories ever imagined.

"This first-rate collection of all things dark and horrifying features 20 classic tales by the likes of Edgar Allan Poe, Henry James, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Bram Stoker, recommended by horror master Lovecraft (1890-1937).

"Recently arrived, and currently being soaked in through my skin and ears, is this giant collection of weird fiction. Assembled from a list of stories found in H.P. Lovecraft's essay 'Supernatural Horror in Literature', it is a collection of well-known and obscure classics by authors that H.P. Lovecraft loved . . . Each of the stories seems to be preceded by some relevant words by Lovecraft himself."
