Lovecrafts favorite horror stories, those that inspired and awed him -- with four additional stories from the original edition!H.P. Lovecraft made lists of both literary and popular stories having the greatest amount of truly cosmic horror and macabre convincingness.

These lists of his favorite weird tales make for a truly landmark Lovecraftian anthology. We present Lovecrafts own favorites horror stories, including some well-known classics, alongside of a number of excellent rare tales by forgotten authors. Many of these stories are classics, inspiring several generations since of the worlds best horror authors.

Contributors include Edgar Allan Poe, Ambrose Bierce, Arthur Machen, Robert W. Chambers, M. R. James, Algernon Blackwood, M. P. Shiel, A. Merritt, Walter de la Mare, Paul Suter, M. L. Humphreys, H.F. Arnold, Everil Worrell, Arthur J. Burks, and John Martin Leahy. This is the anthology of favorite weird tales that Lovecraft himself hoped to compile!This expanded edition features four additional stories not included in Lovecrafts original lists, culled from his later letters.

Included are stories like the classic Passing of a God by Henry S. Whitehead, and some additional tales by acclaimed authors Robert E. Howard and Clark Ashton Smith.To understand why Lovecraft regarded these stories as the touchstone for greatness in the literature of supernatural horror is to understand the significance of the genre itself. The classic works included in this collection, along with Lovecrafts own best tales, both justify and represent the essence of this form of human expression.
