By Matthew T. Carpenter on December 12, 2011
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The Lovecraft Library Vol 1: Horror Out of Arkham is a gorgeous book newly published from IDW. IDW is more notable for their comics and is currently publishing a series The Dunwich Horror, a sequel of sorts to HPL's story scripted by Joe Lansdale. Horror Out of Arkham is a very nice hardcover with 231 pages, with an introduction by Robert Weinberg. List price is a rather expensive $16.99 but it is a very handsome volume. The premise is that it collects some of HPL's stories in which Arkham the city plays a prominent role.

The main attraction is the incredibly beautiful art and cover by menton3. I counted about 18 full color, full page illustrations and they (and the cover) are marvelous.My favorite was a ramshackle house on page 226, perhaps the Whateley estate? Any collector of Lovecraftian art simply must have a copy of this book. As long as menton3 is contributing to this project I will get every issue.

Now we get to the reason I just can't give this book a 5 star recommendation. Here are the contents:
Herbert West - Reanimator
The Unnamable
The Colour Out of Space
The Dunwich Horror
The Dreams in the Witch House
The Thing on the Doorstep

This is neither a very generous nor very comprehensive HPL collection. All of these stories are in the public domain and available for free online; I wish the editor had given us a discussion of the provenance of the text so we knew it was ST Joshi approved. At the least there could have been some more analysis of Arkham's role in these particular stories. There are more economical ways for readers who want to have print copies of these stories. For example, The Library of America has a comprehensive collection of Lovecraft (ISBN 978-1931082723).

Rarely do I feel the need to face a book out rather than shelf it spine out. The Lovecraft Library Volume 1 is an exception to the rule. I already own one complete edition of Lovecraft's works, the Library of America edition, several Arkham House editions, and a host of fiction collections based on H.P.'s mythos. But this edition, though slim and not representative of the full canon of Lovecraft's work, is darkly beautiful in its illustration. I think if there is ever a volume 2 or 3, or even 4, I will be more than happy making a seperate shelve for these handsomely decorated volumes.

Yeah, the book's nice and the stories are great... the art is pretty cool... but I purchased this edition because I wanted to read THE SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH... well, guess what?

...neither is "The Shadow Out of Time"...

Hey, I've always wanted to read the other stories, so yeah... cool. I'm keeping the book. I wanted to read the other stories anyway... but c'mon, Amazon -- yer better than that!
