Peter Straub is one of America’s foremost authors of supernatural and suspense fiction. He is the New York Times bestselling author of a dozen novels, including the horror classic Ghost Story and The Talisman, which he cowrote with Stephen King. His latest novel, Black House—also written with King—is a #1 New York Times bestseller. A past president of the Horror Writers of America and multiple award winner, he lives in New York City.
The Library of America is to be commended for publishing this splendid collection of H. P. Lovecraft's fiction.
His stories incorporate elements of occult lore, science fiction, and cosmic terror with a writing style that is unique, though some have suggested overdone.
Not only is it beautiful in a simple and subtle way, it contains all the work that makes Lovecraft so memorable.
