Overview

“The dreams were wholly beyond the pale of sanity . . . “

Plagued by insane nightmare visions, Walter Gilman seeks help in Miskatonic University’s infamous library of forbidden books, where, in the pages of Abdul Alhazred’s dreaded Necronomicon, he finds terrible hints that seem to connect his own studies in advanced mathematics with the fantastic legends of elder magic. The Dreams in the Witch House, gathered together here with more than twenty other tales of terror, exemplifies H. P. Lovecraft’s primacy among twentieth-century American horror writers.

This volume is a companion to the other two Penguin Classics edition of Lovecraft’s work: The Call of the Cthulhu and The Thing on the Doorstep. This original collection presents the definitive texts of the work, including a newly restored text of “The Shadow out of time” along with S. T. Joshi’s invaluable introduction and notes.
