For our next book discussion, let's get into the works of one of the most influential authors in the history of the genre:
“THE OLDEST AND STRONGEST EMOTION OF MANKIND IS FEAR. AND THE OLDEST AND STRONGEST KIND OF FEAR IS FEAR OF THE UNKNOWN.” – H.P. LOVECRAFT
This is the collection that true fans of horror fiction have been waiting for: sixteen of H.P. Lovecraft’s most horrifying visions:

THE DUNWICH HORROR – An evil Man’s desire to perform an unspeakable ritual leads him in search of the fabled text of The Necronomicon
THE COLOUR OUT OF SPACE – A horror from the skies – far worse than any nuclear fallout – transforms a man into a monster.
THE SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH – Rising from the depths of the sea, an unspeakable horror engulfs a quiet New England town.
