Great Tales of Horror
Beginning with ‘The Call of the Cthulhu’, the first story of the Cthulhu Mythos, and demonstrating the highly original combination of the supernatural, horror and science fiction that was to influence generations of fantasy writers, this collection of 20 short stories by HP Lovecraft (1890–1937) presents his best-known tales, including ‘The Dunwich Horror’, ‘The Rats in the Walls’ and the novella set in the wastes of Antarctica, ‘At the Mountains of Madness’.
A Christmas Carol
The Original Manuscript Edition
The tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, the 'squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner', Marley's ghost and poor Tiny Tim has been a bestseller since it was hurriedly published in time for Christmas in 1843. This very fine edition presents a photographic facsimile of Dickens’s manuscript, now in the Morgan Library & Museum in New York, with a transcription facing each handwritten page, an introduction to the history of A Christmas Carol by Declan Kiely and a foreword by Colm Tóibín.
