tl;dr: The book itself I received is very nicely produced and in great condition, but it is not the book I was expecting.
Let's get the most important thing out of the way first. It is not clear whatsoever on what you're getting when buying this book. The pictures uploaded by the seller do not match what the review pictures show. When looking at the kindle version of this listing as well as the user review pictures, one is led to believe this is the penguin classics HP Lovecraft collection "The Call of Cthulu: and Other Weird Stories." That is NOT the item you receive. Instead you get something called "The Call of Cthulu: and Other Stories", which in my opinion is very deceptively titled and meant to confuse buyers.
This is doubly annoying because at no point does the seller information tell you what stories you are getting (except for, obviously, the Call of Cthulu). As I looked at the kindle version of this listing as well as the other reviews, I assumed the table of contents would be the same as the Penguin Classics version which contained 18 stories and an introduction by famed Lovecraft academic S.T. Joshi. The version I received only has 7 stories, and no introduction section.
So that's a lot of the bad, but let me give some of the good. The book is well made and very attractive looking. I love the simplicity of the cover and it goes well with the foreboding nature of the stories inside. It will look great on a shelf and I much prefer it to some other editions which oftentimes have a much more pulpy, childish design. The Old Ones are not to be taken lightly.
I also actually like the collection of stories in this edition. Even though there's only 7 compared to Penguin Classics 18, this is because it contains two of his longest stories, At the Mountains of Madness and The Case of Charles Dexter Ward. These stories are often omitted from collections because of their length and rarely seen together, so I happy for that.
All in all, I don't plan to return this because I do like the quality of this book, and I've only read 2 of the 7 stories. I also like that I have a version that contains At the Mountains of Madness, the Call of Cthulu, and The Case of Charles Dexter Ward in one volume that will be easy to travel with.
The reasons for only 2 stars? -1 for the confusion surrounding the different versions, -1 for the deceptive title that is only one word different from the Penguin Classics version, and -1 for having no clearly listed table of contents.
