Lovecraft, one of the great obsessive writers of the 20th century, naturally chose the pulp genre of weird horror in which to exorcise his acute anatomical alienation and existential torment. Within the matrix of his grotesque yet complex mythology, Lovecraft was able to conjure a hideous universe lying just beyond our own- his relentless style and language forging a convoluted, midnight-purple literary form which ultimately achieves a veritable pornography of horror: the accumulation and repetition of his demonic visions climaxing in orgasms of cosmic revulsion. Crawling Chaos comprises a chronological collection of this unique writers best work- from his distinctive collaborative pieces, prosepoems and early tales of the gruesome and bizarre, through to the maturation and efflorescence of his personal cosmology, the Cthulhu Mythos. This new expanded edition, published in two volumes, has been enhanced by stories not previously included. With an introduction by acclaimed author Colin Wilson. Volume two includes the following stories: THE DUNWICH HORROR (1928)- MEDUSAS COIL (1930)- THE SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH (1931)- THE DREAMS IN THE WITCHHOUSE (1932)- THE THING ON THE DOORSTEP (1933)- THE HORROR IN THE MUSEUM (1933)- and THE HAUNTER OF THE DARK (1935).
