EXCERPT

"Examined at headquarters after a trip of intense strain and weariness, the prisoners all proved to be men of a very low, mixed-blooded, and mentally aberrant type. Most were seamen, and a sprinkling of Negroes and mulattoes, largely West Indians or Brava Portuguese from the Cape Verde Islands, gave a colouring of voodooism to the heterogeneous cult. But before many questions were asked, it became manifest that something far deeper and older than Negro fetishism was involved. Degraded and ignorant as they were, the creatures held with surprising consistency to the central idea of their loathsome faith.

They worshipped, so they said, the Great Old Ones who lived ages before there were any men, and who came to the young world out of the sky. Those Old Ones were gone now, inside the earth and under the sea; but their dead bodies had told their secrets in dreams to the first men, who formed a cult which had never died. This was that cult, and the prisoners said it had always existed and always would exist, hidden in distant wastes and dark places all over the world until the time when the great priest Cthulhu, from his dark house in the mighty city of R'lyeh under the waters, should rise and bring the earth again beneath his sway. Some day he would call, when the stars were ready, and the secret cult would always be waiting to liberate him."

    I mean on principle alone.... Nope. Not even *close* to his complete works. This isn’t rare for books with similar claims, like Pickman’s Model or Timothy Zahn is often missing at the very least, but major stuff I have in print is Not in this file.
  • Good collection

    People don't realize just because something is public domain doesn't mean publishers can't publish and make money off of it.
  • Just download the Sample

    So I know this is supposed to be public domain by now so I just downloaded the sample instead of paying the 0.99 and the "sample" is the entire book.
  • Not entirely sure if these are the complete works?

    I think nearly everything H.P. hasnt written is included, but I have the feeling that a few more obscure peices aren’t included. Nevertheless the writing is still engaging and horrific for all the right reasons! If you’re a fan of this more thoughtful, tense and disturbing style of horror. I’d strongly reccomend downloading the phenomenal British collection of horror stories ‘Strange Tales of a Cotswold Town’ from the iBookstore.
  • Nice compilation

    This collection has almost 50 of his best known works. All are great reads, and for under a dollar. Where could you go wrong with this deal?

    Is this the Complete works, or just the Greatest works? Am I getting all his stories, or just a few?
