The Necronomicon: H.P. Lovecraft's best weird tales

I just finished it. It took me a while but I enjoyed every page.




HP Lovecraft is a master in the horror. Not the horror that requires blood by the gallon, but the creeping, crawling horror that sneaks on you. He has a penchant for the smallness of man facing the Universe, and the inability of his mind to cope with what it can't understand.

A word of caution: some of the tales contain text that can be considered racist.

My favorite story: "The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath."
