Randolph Carter is not sure what has happened to his closest friend Harley Warren. The two of them decided to visit an old cemetery in a swamp, but something did not go as planned. Carter was found dazed on the edge of the swamp the next morning. His memory is uncertain and indistinct – but he does remember some of the awful happenings. ‘The Statement of Randolph Carter’ is a horror short story written by H. P. Lovecraft. H.P. Lovecraft (1890–1937) was an American horror writer. His best known works include ‘The Call of Cthulhu’ and ‘the Mountains of Madness’. Most of his work was originally published in pulp magazines, and Lovecraft rose into fame only after his death at the age of 46. He has had a great influence in both horror and science fiction genres.

From author Jonathan L. Howard comes the start of a thrilling supernatural series that brings the H.P. Lovecraft mythos into the twenty-first century, optioned by Warner Bros TV. Daniel Carter used to be a homicide detective, but his last case -- the hunt for a serial killer -- went wrong in strange ways and soured the job for him. Now he's a private investigator trying to live a quiet life. Strangeness, however, has not finished with him. First he inherits a bookstore in Providence from someone he's never heard of, along with an indignant bookseller who doesn't want a new boss. She's Emily Lovecraft, the last known descendant of H.P. Lovecraft, the writer from Providence who told tales of the Great Old Ones and the Elder Gods, creatures and entities beyond the understanding of man. Then people start dying in impossible ways, and while Carter doesn't want to be involved, but he's beginning to suspect that someone else wants him to be. As he reluctantly investigates, he discovers that Lovecraft's tales were more than just fiction, and he must accept another unexpected, and far more unwanted inheritance.

H.P. Lovecraft is widely regarded as one of the greatest writers of modern horror fiction and a pervasive influence on popular culture. His monstrous creations have influenced the look of films such as Alien, Hellboy and even Pirates of the Caribbean, while his fiction has inspired authors as diverse as Robert Bloch, Clive Barker and Neil Gaiman. In this comprehensive new biography, Paul Roland examines the life and work of the man Stephen King called ‘the 20th century’s greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale’, and reveals that Lovecraft’s vision was a projection of his inner demons, his recurring nightmares and his inability to live in what he considered a hostile world.

THIS ISSUE: Harley Warren is an expert on violent criminals and assists the FBI in their profiling and pursuit of criminals who tend to be on the bizarre side. Warren believes in exploring the darker side of man, especially those who seek to live in the shadows of normalcy. When Warren reads The Necronomicon, a book that can reveal the darkest and oldest mysteries of the stygian unknown, Warren wastes no time packing up his reluctant chronicler and assistant, Randolph Carter, to explore the site. This chilling Lovecraft tale is adapted by award winning comic writer Steven Philip Jones. H.P. Lovecraft is considered one of America's most innovative and popular American horror writers. The master of the weird tale during the first decades of the 20th Century until his premature death in 1937, Lovecraft's distinctive style and canon of work has influenced many authors. Jones takes the classic tale and while remaining true to the source, brings it into the modern age which can sometimes make the horror even more terrifying. A Caliber Comics release.

This collection represents “The Dream Cycle” - Lovecraft's famous series of short stories & novellas.

Evidently all dreamers see the Dreamlands slightly differently, as Atal, High Priest of Ulthar, mentions that everyone has their own dreamland. In the same sentence he says the Dreamlands that many know is a "general land of vision." The Dreamlands are divided into four regions: The West contains the Steps of Deeper Slumber (descended via the "Cavern of Flame") and the Enchanted Woods by which many enter the Dreamlands. Other points of interest include the port of Dylath-Leen, one of the Dreamlands' largest cities; the town of Ulthar "where no man may kill a cat," the coastal jungle city of Hlanith, and the desert trading capital Illarnek. Here lies the fabled Land of Mnar, whose gray stones are etched with signs and where rise the ruins of the great Sarnath. The South, home of the isle of Oriab and the areas known as the Fantastic Realms. The East, home of Celephaïs, a city dreamt into being by its monarch Kuranes, greatest of all recorded dreamers, and the dangerous Forbidden Lands.

Randolph Carter is an antiquarian and one-time student of the fictional Miskatonic University. Based on clues from various stories, he was probably born around 1874 and grew up in and around Boston. At the age of nine, he underwent a mysterious experience at his great-uncle Christopher's farm and thereafter exhibited a gift of prophecy. He is the descendant of Sir Randolph Carter, who had studied magic during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I of England. Sir Randolph had then emigrated to America and his son Edmund Carter later had to flee the Salem witch-trials. Carter also had an ancestor involved in one of the Crusades, who was captured by the Muslims and learned "wild secrets" from them...

Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890--1937) has been described variously as the successor to Edgar Allan Poe, a master of the Gothic horror tale, and one of the father of modern supernatural fantasy fiction. Published originally in pulp magazines, his works have grown in popularity since his death, so that more than thirty editions are currently in print. Yet only recently has Lovecraft received serious attention from literary critics. And until now no one has examined his work from a post-structuralist perspective. Donald Burleson fills that void, for the first time in an extended study bringing the resources of deconstruction to bear on the works of this modern gothicist. In an introductory overview, Burleson gives an unusually readable account of deconstruction theory and terminology, a field all too often discussed in densely opaque fashion. He goes on to deconstruct thirteen Lovecraft stories, delving into their fascinating etymological mazes, abundant ambiguities, and shifting levels of meanings. His lively and remarkably jargon-free readings explore Lovecraft's rich figurality to unprecedented depths. At the same time Burleson develops the view that in practicing self-subversion and structural displacement, literary texts perpetuate themselves. His final chapter explores the broad themes running though Lovecraft's fiction, arguing that these themes in themselves prefigure the deconstructive gesture. This insightful and provocative volume will go a long way toward displacing the label of popular writer and establishing Lovecraft as an important figure in American literature.
