Necronomicon
Necronomicon: The Best Weird Tales of H.P. Lovecraft | H.P. Lovecraft
WIKIPEDIA says: 'H.P. Lovecraft's reputation has grown tremendously over the decades, and he is now commonly regarded as one of the most important horror writers of the 20th century, exerting an influence that is widespread, though often indirect.' His tales of the tentacled Elder God Cthulhu and his pantheon of alien deities were initially written for the pulp magazines of the 1920s and '30s. These astonishing tales blend elements of horror, science fiction and cosmic terror that are as powerful today as they were when they were first published. THE NECRONOMICON collects together the very best of Lovecraft's tales of terror, including the complete Cthulhu Mythos cycle, just the way they were originally published. It will introduce a whole new generation of readers to Lovecraft's fiction, as well as being a must-buy for those fans who want all his work in a single, definitive volume.

And, no trip to London is complete without us wandering through Waterstones. My guy quickly disappears and can easily be found in the Sci-Fi or Comics section. #london

Here‘s my new bookish pin I got this weekend. The Necronomicon from Evil Dead urging you to read banned books yay! Also I thought my Ash figure here at work would pair nicely.

At 896 pages, this is a big book. A collection of horror short stories, novellas and novels.

I've read a big chunk of it, I read a bit then leave it for a while and go back to it; what I've read do far I've liked.

His writing style is different to anyone I've read, first he uses a lot of obscure words; I've got to sit with a dictionary. 😂 ...but also because his writing is more imagery based and less about characters.

MStew Love that book, there is a matching book to go with it i used to see it at nobles🤓😚 1y
jmofo In high school, a teacher told me I wrote like Lovecraft (I don‘t really, I was just an anxious kid) so when I finally got around to reading Lovecraft many years later, it coincided with the release of one of my favorite local band‘s LP. The album and his writing are now forever associated for me. The band‘s named Land Lines and the album‘s The Natural World. 1y

Love a bit of Lovecraft, there's no author that comes close to his brilliance. 🐙☇

Trollkonstnaren I have read few stories from there. They are brilliant - with one negative remark: they are short. Some of them felt like they ended too soon. Anyway, I really should read tbe whole book someday. 2y
Bookwomble @Trollkonstnaren "At the Mountains of Madness" and "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward" are novel length, if perhaps short ones by the standards of present-day multi-volume tomes. The stories of Randolph Carter's journeys in the Dreamlands are well-enough connected to form a reasonably coherent narrative, I think. 2y

What is scarier? The unknown or knowing too much? The father of cosmic horror, Lovecraft tells us how insignificantly little and blissfully ignorant we are. He describes perfectly the dreadful, loneliness and the ugly. #horror

First post, a kind of presentation: hello, I'm Alessia in childhood a big reader, not so big currently for times reasons. But I'm recovering. This is my current reading, and I'm in love with the style of writing of Lovecraft. Generally I read historical or political essays, fantasy/fantascientific novels, and I'm a lover of the classics.

Wow, this is a chunker! It's a little over 800 pages, and it contains most of H.P.L's most well known stories and a few poems. I wouldn't recommend this collection to anyone who is just starting to get into Lovecraft. I would suggest that you start with a smaller volume or of you have the Serial Reader app, read the stories available there. His style takes some getting used to👇

alexbaysinger But if you're a fan of H.P.L., this is a must have collection. 3y

Loved it. Although some may say Lovecraft goes purple with prose, the serious reader will find even his most grotesque insinuations to be poetic and beautiful. Listening to the audio of this took me to another world.

I'm 1/3 of the way thru the audio for Necronomicon. It's an interesting listen. I can see why he's such a historical force in horror/fantasy, but I can also see why he's heavily criticized for his racism (it's a little much even for his time). Super excited for the lit themed brewery though!!

BookishFeminist This looks like a lot of fun! Enjoy! 🍻 4y
quirkyreader You just know that Dagon is going to be everywhere in this place. 4y
Bookbeez @quirkyreader there was at least one Dagon and a large amount of tentacles on the wall...and a giant stuffed octopus. It was pretty awesome. 4y
