Publisher's Summary

Another H. P. Lovecraft masterpiece. We have all heard of alien abductions, but what if the alien forces only exchange the mind of the abductee with a mind to occupy that of the abductee's body while the mind travels in the body of an alien to be mined for information concerning the abductee's world? The mind then travels to a place in the earth where it mingles with not only with the aliens, but minds from other planets and other ages on this Earth. Prof. Nathaniel Wingate Peasley's mind goes on such an adventure, being abducted in the middle of an economics class Prof. Peasley is instructing. The sanitizing of Prof. Peasley's mind was apparently incomplete as he has fantastic dreams that become more and more real and maddening. Travel along as Lovecraft takes us to the deserts of Australia where the great underground city of the Yithians is discovered by Prof. Peasley and his party. Now will the Yithians remain dormant? Let's hope so!

Awe inspiring science fiction

While H.P. Lovecraft is primarily know as a horror, or weird fiction, author, I would place "The Shadow Out of Time" squarely in the realm of science fiction. If you enjoy Lovecraft's work, as I do, then this will be right up your alley. For those unfamiliar with the author, this is not the ideal starting point for discovering his large body of work. I would suggest starting with "The Call of Cthulhu" and then moving on to some stories with a more traditional setup, perhaps "The Dunwich Horror" or " The Shadow Over Innsmouth."

In believe "The Shadow Out of Time," "The Colour Out of Space," and "At the Mountains of Madness" to be Lovecraft's masterpieces. Thus, I would save them for later, both to ensure that you get a proper basis in the Mythos before reading them and to save the best for last.

Narrator is pretty bad

I adore Lovecraft, and this story is no disappointment. However, the narrator's mispronunciation of simple words like "familiarly," "masonry," and "excavate," among others, is disgustingly distracting.
