A complete short novel, AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS is a tale of terror unilke any other.
The Barren, windswept interior of the Antarctic plateau was lifeless--or so the expedition from Miskatonic University thought. Then they found the strange fossils of unheard-of creatures...and the carved stones tens of millions of years old...and, finally, the mind-blasting terror of the City of the Old Ones.
Three additional strange tales, written as only H.P. Lovecraft can write, are also included in this macabre collection of the strange and the weird.

JohnSteed, sorry for making you wait, but the book was greatly appreciated.

I love horror books and movies and wanted to read Lovecraft because he is one of the 'classics'. The story 'at the mountains of madness' was the best, what a dark world it describes!

I was interested to see how the discoveries of physical scientists in his time had created new opportunities for horror stories. Creatures from other dimensions, now not so fashionable anymore, were new and exciting. And nowhere in these stories does religion play a role in vanquishing evil, something which I am quite used to. I guess after the more scientific horror we must have re-introduced religion into horror at some point.

I will certainly be on the look-out for more books from mr. Lovecraft.

This was part of a trade with lundi - love the cover (the blood red nail polish is an especially nice touch) and the first paragraph is enough to promise a pleasurable read. Ancient icecaps are so cool... and topical at the moment, with icebergs floating unusually close to New Zealand right now. Will journal some more when I've read it. Thanks lundi!
