Publisher's Summary

The Shadow over Innsmouth and The Whisperer in Darkness are counted among H. P. Lovecraft's most popular stories. In the first we are transported to the decrepit coastal town of Innsmouth, whose amphibianlike citizens betray a dark and sinister secret. The second takes us to Vermont, where a university professor becomes embroiled in a mind-bending celestial mystery after strange things are seen floating in the rivers. 

Dark, brooding, and suspenseful, this is Lovecraft at his very best.

Excellent!

Loved it in all regards! Excellent narrator and the story veritably oozed dread. I'll be looking out for more from Lovecraft and the narrator!
