    At the heart of these stories, as with all the best of Lovecraft’s work, is the belief that the Earth was once inhabited by powerful and evil gods, just waiting for the chance to recolonise their planet. Cthulhu is one such god, lurking deep beneath the sea until called into being by cult followers who – like all humans – know not what they do.

    Attending to the affairs of his late uncle, a man pieces together disturbing notes, articles, and horrendous carvings of a nightmare beast on stones neither of which are from this world. It propels him on a world-wide search that culminates with the discovery that dormant, great, elder beings who seeped to Earth before humanity's dawn are stirring in their sleep and will rise to re-exert their dominion over the world at the expense of humans and their civilization.

    Howard Phillips Lovecraft is among the greatest American writers of fantasy and the supernatural. Born in 1890, a native of Providence, Rhode Island, his health was uncertain from childhood and he led a sheltered early life. His semi-invalidism enabled him to read omnivorously, and as a shy imaginative child he began to invent what would in his adult life become a whole macabre fantastic world of his own, peopled by creatures out of his own weird imagination.
