H.P. Lovecraft like his creation, Cthulhu never truly died. He and his influence live on, in the work of so many of us who were his friends and acolytes. Today we have reason for rejoicing in the widespread revival of his canonIf a volume such as this has any justification for it's existence, it's because Lovecraft's readers continue to search out stories which reflect his contribution to the field of fantasy [the tales in this book] represent a lifelong homage to HPL I hope you'll accept them for what they were and are a labor of love.-- Robert BlochThis third edition now includes the Robert Bloch short stories The Opener of the Way, The Eyes of the Mummy, Black Bargain, and Philtre Tip.This book is one in an expanding collection of Cthulhu Mythos horror fiction.
