Editorial Reviews

Review

''One of the greatest short novels in American literature and a key text in my own understanding of what that literature can do.'' --Michael Chabon, New York Times bestselling author

''Lovecraft's fiction is one of the cornerstones of modern horror.'' --Clive Barker

''With its atypically epic scope and clues to unraveling the Cthulhu mythos, it's no wonder this story inspires the utmost devotion of Lovecraft fans.'' --Booklist

''Lovecraft's At the Mountain of Madness opens with a newspaper announcement of a voyage to Antarctica . . . From there, the book launches into the story of Dyer's own, earlier expedition to the Antarctic wasteland, one that culminated in murder and horror in the aforementioned mountains. Lovecraft was a master of writing about indescribable horrors whose visages violate the laws of nature in unsettling ways.'' --Publishers Weekly

''At the Mountains of Madness ranks high among the horror stories of the English language.'' --Time

''There is a melancholy, operatic grandeur in Lovecraft's most passionate work, like At the Mountains of Madness; a curious elegiac poetry of unspeakable loss, of adolescent despair and an existential loneliness so pervasive that it lingers in the reader's memory, like a dream, long after the rudiments of Lovecraftian plot have faded.'' --Joyce Carol Oates

From the Inside Flap

A complete short novel, AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS is a tale of terror unilke any other. The Barren, windswept interior of the Antarctic plateau was lifeless--or so the expedition from Miskatonic University thought. Then they found the strange fossils of unheard-of creatures...and the carved stones tens of millions of years old...and, finally, the mind-blasting terror of the City of the Old Ones. Three additional strange tales, written as only H.P. Lovecraft can write, are also included in this macabre collection of the strange and the weird.
