On the twelfth day of Cthulhumas Tor.com gave to me...
Collected works of writing,
Gibbering terrors taunting,
Arkham wafts a-whirling,
Tentacle sigils squirming,
Looting and a-leveling,
Cuties for a-cuddling,
Silver and jewels a-shining,
A dark, eldritch seal,
Strange aeons past,
Grim tales told,
Yule horror spawned,
And Old Ones wrought in effigy.
Rapturous Tale #1: The Collected Essays of H.P. Lovecraft, Vols. 1-5 (Volume 1: Amateur Journalism; Volume 2: Literary Criticism; Volume 3: Science; Volume 4: Travel; Volume 5: Philosophy; Autobiography and Miscellany)
“H. P. Lovecraft has belatedly received world renown as the twentieth century’s premier author of supernatural fiction; but during his lifetime he wrote far more essays than stories. This edition gathers Lovecraft’s complete nonfictional output for the first time, arranged in broad thematic groupings. S. T. Joshi, the world’s leading authority on Lovecraft, exhaustively annotates all texts, also providing critical and bibliographical notes.”
Rapturous Tale #2 Lovecraft: Tales
“In this Library of America volume, the best-selling novelist Peter Straub brings together the very best of Lovecraft’s fiction in a treasury guaranteed to bring fright and delight both to longtime fans and to readers new to his work [...]Moving from old New England towns haunted by occult pasts to Antarctic wastes that disclose appalling secrets, Lovecraft’s tales continue to exert a dread fascination.”
