When I read H.P. Lovecraft in high school, it gave me nightmares. The images were so horrific but looking back over the stories, I find that while he described things, a lot of it was described as indescribably horrific and my mind filled in the blanks. So, reading this graphic version of some of Lovecraft's most popular short stories was an interesting visual experience as well as a fresh look at some spellbinding horror stories. So, if you need a bit of a chill up your spine this summer -- this may be the book for you.
