Written by one of the most important writers of the 20th 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 the essay Lovecraft acknowledges those writers and stories that he feels are the very finest the horror field has to offer. For the first time in book form, World Fantasy Award-wining editor Stephen Jones proudly presents these twenty classic tales by Lovecraft's favorite authors, including Washington Irving, Robert Louis Stevenson, Guy de Maupassant, Edgar Allan Poe, Ambrose Bierce, Rudyard Kipling, Lafcadio Hearn, Bram Stoker, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, William Hope Hidgson, and Arthur Machen, each prefaced by Lovecraft's own opinions and insights into their work. This chilling new 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.

Reviews

 "For anyone interested even faintly in good horror writing, what we have here is pure gold: Lovecraft's own selection of the best the genre has to offer, along with his comments on the individual stories. Talk about the horse's mouth!"
—Peter Straub

 "Through the variety of stories, this collection provides a range that seems to accurately represent the work Lovecraft was reading . . . Essentially this volume serves two purposes: a glimpse into Lovecraft's thoughts about the fiction contemporary to his life and work, and a showcase for the roots of the horror genre . . . For those interested in the all-time best (or most reprinted) horror, there are other volumes, but what this volume can provide is a sense of perspective."
—Amelia Beamer
