Lovecraft: The Fiction is part of Barnes & Noble's Library of Essential Writers. Each title in the series presents the finest works - complete and unabridged - from one of the greatest writers in literature in magnificent, elegantly designed hardback editions.

i have read some unsettling reviews for this product and about it's "hundreds" if not "thousands" of typing errors. i had also read about this 2011 version being much more ameliorated. i don't mind that much about typos existing in a more that one thousand page book, what i would loathe is finding out that the sum of them is really that big... can please someone offer some feedback on the matter? thank youshow more

I just love this compilation. I have often said that good books need to be bound in such a way that they could endure the tides of time, and this one is the exact embodiment of my desire. The notes preceding the novels are also invaluable, and the somewhat improved editing is also appreciated. Not to mention the contents: the complete opus of the master of macabre (excluding master Poe here only) is, in itself, sufficient to make any knowledgeable reader addicted to this book. Spot on!show more
