    One thought on “The Lovecraft Library Volume 1: Horror Out of Arkham”

    1. I've spent a long time waiting to get copies of Lovecraft's work, because I just didn't feel that any of the collections truly did his writing justice. Either they were cobbled together, a few random stories with one of the more famous novellas just to sell some copies, or they were anthologized in a massive collection that would prove far too unwieldy for me to read casually on the bus (where most of my reading is done these days). It was at a comic store here in Pittsburgh where I finally stum [...]

    2. The Lovecraft Library Vol 1: Horror Out of Arkham is a gorgeous book newly published from IDW. IDW is more notable for their comics and is currently publishing a series The Dunwich Horror, a sequel of sorts to HPL's story scripted by Joe Lansdale. Horror Out of Arkham is a very nice hardcover with 231 pages, with an introduction by Robert Weinberg. List price is a rather expensive but it is a very handsome volume. The premise is that it collects some of HPL's stories in which Arkham the city pla [...]

    3. A nicely constructed book: sturdy and printed on good quality paper (take that, e-readers!). The illustrations match the stories excellently, for the most part, and in any event are well executed and atmospheric. The stories are themed around Lovecraft's eerie New England town of Arkham, Massachusetts:Herbert West - Reanimator: One of my favourite Lovecraft stories, and a good opener to the collection. There is a certain degree of repetition, which I assume is due to it having been serialised in [...]

    4. To a Batman fan Arkham is an insane asylum in Gotham City, but nothing in that asylum can match the weird and wonderful events of H P Lovecraft's fictional Massachusetts city of Arkham-a conduit to the terrifying parallel dimensions housing such ancient monsters as Cthulhu (latterly of South Park fame) and Nyarlathotep. Needless to say Arkham and it's surrounds is also home to many a deranged and in - bred dabbler in the occult keen to breach the barriers between the worlds and bring forth such [...]

    5. Lovecraft truly is one of the most innovative and potent horror authors of all-time, which is why there is seemingly an unlimited amount of collections of his short stories. Well, here is another one. This is an illustrated, hardcover volume with 6 stories all based out of Lovecraft's fictional town of Arkham (yep, this is where DC Comics got the name for Arkham Asylume place the Joker has escaped from 400 times and counting).The stories themselves are great, for the most part. The Thing On The [...]

    6. Técnicamente varios relatos ya los había leido en mi infancia. Sea como sea Lovecraft es y será siempre uno de los amos del terror, excelente libro, excelente edición y genial autor ¿Qué más pueden pedir?

    7. Very good book. I wasn't crazy about a few of the stories, but most of them were very good. Plus, I loved the book itself, very nice hard cover book with quality paper, very nice graphics, etc. It's one of the reasons I bought it. If you like Lovecraft, pick this book up.
