I recently purchased the softcover version of this book and although cheaper it is absolutely massive and has great quality. See all 7 questions about Necronomicon…. Lists with This Book. It is also one of his shortest. Written in the first-person narrative as is often the case in his fictionit tells of a man or is it?
As said, this story is super short but masterfully executed, woven around the themes of loneliness, abnormality and the afterlife. The prose is as it should given the genre——divinely gothic, deliciously verbose and darkly purple. All in all, a masterpiece.
This story of a math student who decides to rent a room in a cursed house in which a witch and her hellish amalgam of a familiar are said to have lived is downright disturbing and creepy and just too well written for comfort.
Which makes it yet another masterpiece in the Lovecraft canon. Eschewing the first person for the third limited, Lovecraft treats us to a chilling account of what the protagonist, Robert Blake, discovers when, driven by his penchant for the occult, he decides to go and explore a haunted church in the town of Providence, RI.
Here again the writing is on point as Lovecraft knows better than anyone how to create an atmosphere of claustrophobia and paranoia, playing unashamedly with the fear of the unknown and impending doom.
Deeply steeped in the Cthulhu mythos, this story is a prime example of how curiosity can kill a cat.
Although not nekronmikon first Lovecraft story to introduce an element of the Cthulhu mythos that would be Dagon, also included in this collectionthis one is the first to feature the foul-smelling, tentacle-wielding and potbellied deity in all its greasy and nasty glory.
Written as an epistolary short story, it gives an account of the discovery of Cthulhu via nekronomioon series of documents left behind by the great uncle of the narrator, Francis Wayland Thurston.
Told once again in the first person, the story is about a student whose name is never revealed who goes to the ruined seaside town of Innsmouth, Mass. Lovecraft spares no words in describing the cursed town, and we soon understand that the nature of the curse boils down to an invasion of Innsmouth many nerkonomikon ago by the Deep Ones, an ancient people that came ashore from the bottom of the sea.
From the town drunk with whom the narrator has a long perhaps overlong? I guess I could go on like this forever, as there are many other stories in this collection that are worth reading and rereading, but I will stop here for now.

Lovecraft This collection of weird fiction short stories and novellas is slightly inconsistent in terms of nekronoimkon, but it contains so many genuinely original and thoroughly harrowing, sinister tales that, on the whole, I found it a highly enjoyable—and often exquisitely eerie—reading experience.
Lovecraft was a very dark, very strange little monkey. View all 13 comments.
Jul 26, Branduno rated it it was amazing Shelves: Nekronomukon seriously took a publisher how much of a century to title a collection of Lovecraft’s stories “Necronomicon”? Did lavkdaft really just not occur to anyone? Shouldn’t the first collected volume of his stories have been called that?
I lqvkraft August Derleth. Speaking of whom, I don’t believe this edition features the re-edited versions of the texts available in the Library of America edition of Lovecraft. Necronomicon includes the older editions as published by Derleth’s Arkham House It seriously took a publisher how much of a century to title a collection of Lovecraft’s stories “Necronomicon”? Necronomicon includes the older editions as published by Derleth’s Arkham House, featuring Derleth’s There’s a rather nice map of Arkham, Massachusetts printed on the front and back endpapers.
Admittedly it’s very similar to the map accompanying the Arkham entry in The Dictionary of Imaginary Places, but never mind that.
At least it’s rather better than Necronomicon’s other illustrations, which are for some reason the same three pictures of a shifty-lookin’ guy, a pile of old books and papers, and a megalith, repeated fairly randomly at the first and last pages of many stories. Also it’s bound really poorly, basically a paperbound book with hard boards, but this is true of virtually all hardcover editions published these days, which is lamentable but hardly unique to this book.
I sound like I’m being pretty hard on Necronomicon, but I was totally pleased with it. I like having a single-volume hardcover edition of most of Lovecraft’s stories with the single most appropriate title possible. That’s really all I ask of a Necronomicon. Also the italics are kinda like eldritch alien text, yeah?
There are also pictures of some houses. Jun 07, Andrew Fantasia rated it it was ok. I suppose the two best words to describe my feelings on the work of the 20th century’s most prolific horror writer are “mostly disappointing”.
A bunch of stories stood out for me as being genuine, page-turning excitement: Wave after wave of endless paragraphs -broken only ever so slightly by the odd letter or telegram -is a tedious way to tell a story. This book contains 34 short stories, and by the end of the 4th one I was begging for some actual character work and dialogue, rather than: The horror itself works occasionally, and when it does it’s friggin awesome!
I totally understand the “Jaws” method of horror, wherein the less you see of the monster, the more effective it is. But in Lovecraft’s case, not only do we barely ever glimpse his infamous creatures, but whenever we DO catch a fleeting glimpse our protagonists -who are narrating these encounters -faint.
Did people in the s just Was fainting a nation-wide epidemic back then, like polio, or selfies? People in these stories faint at the lqvkraft of a fucking hat. I saw a rat. I heard a scary noise. I think there might nekrinomikon a piece of carrot stuck between my teeth.
Lovecraft’s imagination is strong enough to dream up so many fantastic terrors, yet he seems more keen on keeping them to himself. Even his protagonists are stingy with details; their accounts of the horrors they witnessed are usually along the lines of: Yes, Howard, I know Arkham has “gambrel roofs”.
I know this because after the first several hundred times you brought it up, it happened to stick. In “At The Mountains of Madness”, if I’d had a dollar for every time Lovecraft used the words “decadent” and”demoniac”, I could have purchased a very big yacht, or a very small country. Considering that these stories are supposed to make up The Cthulu Mythos, I was a little miffed to say the least when I turned the final page and realized that I could only recall Cthulu’s name popping up twice.
TWICE, in pages. And even then it was probably in some context like: Unfortunately, neither the monsters nor the humans receive much characterization.
Necronomicon: The Best Weird Tales
A few of these heroes seemed like they were ABOUT to get interesting, but then a cool breeze blew through their windows, naturally causing them to faint. The cover of this book states that these are “the best weird tales of H.
