Are YOU ready to enter the Tomb?

In a dank wooded hollow stands the Tomb, excavated far back into the hillside. Its portals are slabs of granite, its door a ponderous and forbidding slab of stone which hangs upon rusted hinges, fastened ajar in a queerly sinister way with heavy iron chains and padlocks. One man has the key that will open the tomb wide. One man will face the nameless horrors within. You can follow him inside — if you dare …

… and engulfed the soul of Charles Dexter Ward, a brilliant young New England antiquarian. Evil spirits, dark gods whose memory lived on in half-understood legends and fear-stricken superstitious whispers lurked in the vile catacombs beneath the surface of a blighted land. It was these loathsome horrors whom Ward was driven to loose on a defenceless world—driven by the all-powerful shade of a dead ancestor who had mastered the blackest arts of magic. Now Ward too needed knowledge of these dark mysteries. To get it, he had to pay in blood. Human blood.

H. P. LOVECRAFT the 20th Century’s undisputed master of the horror story, wrote only one full-length novel. This is it.

An ancient evil was about to be unleashed

Ambrose Dewart was the last lineal descendant of the Billington family. So it was natural that he should come to the legend-shrouded town of Arkham, Massachusetts, to take up residence in the old family mansion in Billington’s Wood— even though the house had stood empty and shunned for over a hundred years.

Dewart found a rich legacy of disturbing features awaiting him: an ancient tower surrounded by a ring of stones in the forest, a strangely disquieting window of coloured
glass which offered glimpses into some weird dimension of horror, a library of dark and secret lore — and family legends involving mysterious rites, ghastly deaths and
disappearances, and the conjuration of vile, age-old Powers from beyond space and time.

Most frightening of all, Dewart found his arrival had brought these horrors to life again.
And the Lurker was once more preparing to cross the Threshold…

H. P. LOVECRAFT and August Derleth, two of this century’s foremost masters of the macabre, have created a chilling novel of ultimate evil that is sure to grip the reader’s soul in a fist of ice.
