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 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).Read more ›

...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!
