Sintesi dell'editore

Following the phenomenal success of Necronomicon, its companion volume brings together Lovecraft's remaining major stories plus his weird poetry, a number of obscure revisions, and some notable nonfiction, including the seminal critical essay "Supernatural Horror in Literature."

Gathering together in chronological order the rest of Lovecraft's rarely seen but extraordinary short fiction, this collection includes the entirety of the long-out-of-print collection of thirty-six sonnets "Fungi from Yuggoth."

Lovecraft died at the age of forty-seven, but in his short life he turned out dozens of stories that changed the face of horror. His extraordinary imagination spawned both the Elder God Cthulhu and his eldritch cohorts, as well as the strangely compelling town of Innsmouth, all of which feature here.

Great stuff

As the second part of the Necronomicon book I was expecting the last of Lovecraft stories to be included but At the Mountains of Madness is missing and I'm sure still more are missing.

Stick with the Necronomicon

Almost all the stories were rather uninteresting to follow, often found my mind wandering off instead of listening to what's happening. I suggest if you haven't, only pick up the necronomicon that holds a lot of lovecraft's actual really good work and then also pick up the shadow over insmouth and mountain of madness. I like lovecraft's universe a lot but most of the the stories in this collection are a lot weaker then anything else I've read or listened to, even the fan story collection lovecraft's monsters" features far more entertaining material to listen.

A fantastic, fantastically varied collection

Necronomicon (ISBN 1483013499) contains the stories he is most famous for, but Eldritch Tales is a fantastic collection in its own right and absolutely worth reading. As the many odds and ends of his writing career, there is much greater variety in style and structure and the stories are enjoyable in their own right as well. Whilst the quality varies more than in Necronomicon, this substantive collection is well worth listening to in its own right.
