Lonely and Curious Country: Tales from Lovecraft Country
Matthew Carpenter, ed.
“When a traveller in north central Massachusetts takes the wrong fork at the junction of the Aylesbury pike just beyond Dean's Corners, he comes upon a lonely and curious country.” –HP Lovecraft
Horror can lurk in the most unlikely places: from the secluded cottage to the teeming metropolis. Lovecraft knew that terror could be rooted in the geography of a place as much as in an uncaring cosmos or a man's soul. In these 17 brand-new tales of chilling Lovecraftian horrors by leading authors, discover new lands of terror. Learn the truth about the glories of Y'ha-nthlei and what really happened to Erich Zann. Discover the fate of Tillinghast's monstrous machine and do a deal with Nyarlathotep down in the byways of Mississippi. Sometimes that lonely farmhouse, brooding silently in its isolation, can be more terrifying than forgotten monoliths on an uncharted Pacific island.
