This eBook is a collection of 23 stories by H. P. Lovecraft, an influential American author of tales of horror, fantasy and science fiction. Lovecraft's stories are often set in a detailed fantasy world, complete with recurring characters, places and deities (e.g. the god Cthulhu). Themes such as inherited guilt and forbidden knowledge often appear in Lovecraft's stories.
The works included here were published between 1916 and 1922. The full list of stories is as follows:
The Beast in the Cave
Beyond the Wall of Sleep
The White Ship
The Statement of Randolph Carter
The Doom That Came to Sarnath
Poetry and the Gods
The Cats of Ulthar
Facts Concerning the Late Arthur Jermyn and His Family
The Crawling Chaos
The Terrible Old Man
The Picture in the House
The Nameless City
The Music of Erich Zann
