A gem of a tale for science fiction horror aficionados, filled with Lovecraft's magnificent descriptions of the region and a great introduction to Lovecraft's mythology of "the Old Ones" and the glories and horrors that preceded humankind, that still linger in far off places today. Lovecraft wrote many stories dealing with the "Cthulhu myth." This one is viewed by many as the most coherent and understandable these stories. It is a genius work or horror and fantasy.
