About the Author
H. P. Lovecraft is one of the seminal horror authors of the twentieth century. He wrote more than one hundred stories, and achieved popular acclaim in such publications as Astounding Stories and Weird Tales. Though he died in 1937, the small press publisher Arkham House was established in 1939 to preserve Lovecraft’s works for future generations. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

That's part of the charm, however, as if Lovecraft's overwrought purple prose. The most absurd part in the story was a quoted Australian newspaper article written in Lovecraft's peculiar, xenophobic voice. What kind of journalist would use the phrase, 'a queer and evil-looking crew of Kanakas and half-castes'?
Mostly, the story is important for the genre it birthed, rather than its own merits. It's still a good read, though.
Secondly, its journal format makes the reader feel so immersed, as if you were truly reading an actual document or journal entry. This format adds a level of fright that could not be achieved in a third-person perspective.
This book is a true example of minimalistic horror that is not seen too often in modern horror novels. Even with a short length and minimal amounts of speech, this book still instills chills into the reader. I highly recommend this book.
Good book quality. Soft, strong cover and easy to read type.
If you are looking into a more interesting journey within this book I recommend as a companion one chapter of "The Satanic Rituals" of Anton Lavey, (I'm not a Satan worshiper or anything like that) There's a chapter called "The call of Cthulhu" and has the complete ritual that has been told during the whole HP book.
