Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
J'ai été surpris par le format du livre. Tranche dorée, papier presque bible. On dirait un volume de la Pléiade en trois fois plus gros. C'est comme la taille des steaks dans les restaurants américains. Etat impeccable par ailleurs et livraison rapide.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Be Certain you Get the 2011 Corrected Edition with its Purple book ribbon!!! 3 juillet 2011
Par Wilum Hopfrog Pugmire, Esq. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This is a great collection that contains every single story that H. P. Lovecraft wrote by himself. Each story has a wee note by esteemed editor, S. T. Joshi, concerning the story. The first edition, which sold for $12.95, was riddled with hundreds of typographical errors; you can tell if you have that edition because it has a gold book ribbon and gold gilt on the edge of its pages. The 2011 edition has almost all of the typos corrected; it has a purple book ribbon and silver gilt on its pages, and that is the edition you want. The problem with ordering the book here at Amazon is that you have no idea what edition they will send you as you cannot inspect the book yourself. But it is a great book, and includes rare items such as "A History of the Necronomicon," plus it has lovely end papers and a sewn-in book ribbon. Here are the complete contents:

Discarded draft of "The Shadow over Innsmouth"

Supernatural Horror in Literature

One of the outstanding features here seen is that the tales are published in chronological order, as it is interesting to see what things came first, what inspired other stories, &c. Here we find the stories that Lovecraft wrote during his two-year exile in New York ("Under the Pyramids" was written just before his marriage, and the MS was lost at the train station, and so he had to retype the MS during his honeymoon) and then we see the surge of amazing creativity that Lovecraft experienced upon returning home to Providence, a time during which he penned "The Call of Cthulhu" and his two (unpublished during his lifetime) novels.

The long version of the early tale "The Mysterious Ship" appears in print for the first time anywhere.

Writes Joshi, "The discarded draft of 'The Shadow over Innsmouth' is found on the back of the extant manuscript of the final draft of the story, and individual pages of it have apparently been incorporated into the finished story. It has several points of interest, including the narrator's visit to the Marsh retail office--a scene excised from the final draft."

The book ends with Lovecraft's magnificent essay, SUPERNATURAL HORROR IN LITERATURE.

Once the fully corrected text edition is published at the end of 2011, this edition of H. P. Lovecraft's solo Works will be THE definitive edition of all of those tales that he wrote on his own (and his collaboration with E. Hoffmann Price).

Later this year Arcane Wisdom Press will bring forth the first of two volumes of Lovecraft's revisions and collaborations, THE CRAWLING CHAOS AND OTHERS, edited and annotated by S. T. Joshi, and once the second of those volumes is published we will have all of Lovecraft's fiction available. It's a sweet time to be a Lovecraft fan, aye.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 The Misspellings of Madness 1 août 2011
Par Elizabeth Reed - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
It seemed like a very good deal in the store at $20, but if you want to be swept away to fantastic realms, DON'T buy this edition! No sooner do I begin to really get into a story than I'm rudely jerked back to reality by extremely obvious and irritating typos, misspellings, and grammar errors! The entire book is rife with glaring mistakes that should have been caught by any semi-competent proofreader. It really diminishes the quality of one's reading experience. What's more, the (very lovely) binding is regrettably pretty shoddily made. I've only owned this book for a few weeks, and the other day the thin layer of photographic foil on the front began spontaneously to peel and flake off! I find it distressing that such a pretty cover should start deteriorating so fast. Also, it is definitely not leather. Which is completely fine; I don't require my reading material to be wrapped in dead cow, but they should probably be clearer in their product description since they do say "leather."
Do go and buy some other Lovecraft collection, because the stories are wonderful, but if typos and misspellings bad enough to actually change the meaning of sentences (e.g. snakes "writing" instead of "writhing") are going to disturb your reading experience, THIS IS NOT THE ONE FOR YOU.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Not quite complete 3 juin 2011
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
As far as the stories contained are concerned, this is an ESSENTIAL collection for any horror aficionado (although they would probably own most of these stories already by now). Lovecraft was and is an amazing read. There are stories here that chill me - "The Colour Out of Space" and "Pickman's Model" are two that readily come to mind - and many more that I look forward to enjoying - like the novel-length "Case of Charles Dexter Ward" and "Dream Quest of Kudthu". Including his treatise on Supernatural Horror is an additional treat!

BUT!

These are NOT the complete works of HP Lovecraft.

This collects EVERY story he wrote BY HIMSELF (and two that he collaborated on), but leaves out his revision-stories. HP Lovecraft spent time working with other authors and eventually some of these authors had their stories rewritten by Lovecraft. Those stories - which includes the chilling "The Mound" and "In The Walls of Eryx" - are not included.

So, it is not the Complete Fiction advertised, however, it has a ton of stuff and it is the most complete collection in one-volume available today. If you don't have anything by Lovecraft, this is a collection that is worth the price. I highly recommend it ... but don't try to read too much in one sitting [cue dramatic evil laugh].

Discarded draft of "The Shadow over Innsmouth"

Lovecraft's essay, "Supernatural Horror in Literature" is also included in this edition which I consider a bonus since there are other compilations that only contain extracts of the essay. In short, this is a great value edition for any fan of Lovecraft's weird fiction.

I've been a long-time fan of Barnes and Nobles' Leather-Bound classics collection. They are handsome and quality editions with ribbon page markers and each title has a beautiful cover. I purchase them as soon as I'm aware that a new title has been published because they tend to sell fast. There have been cases where I've had to resort to buying some of the titles from third party sellers here on Amazon when they are sold out at B&N. These leather-bound editions are beautiful and will enhance any collector's library.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The craftwork of H.P. Lovecraft 30 décembre 2012
Par KnC Books - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I received "H.P. Lovecraft: The Complete Fiction" as a gift from my son; it is truly one of those gifts that keeps on giving.

My previous exposure to Lovecraft was limited to a short story here or there in a horror anthology, so obviously I am not a hardcore Lovecraft (or horror fiction) aficianado. Whether or not this is truly the 'complete' fiction of Lovecraft (this seems to be a matter of disagreement by fans) I am likewise in no position to judge. However there are some truly stellar aspects of this collection that I would like to share.

The brief introduction at the beginning of each piece by editor S.T. Joshi was a nice addition. Generally a short paragraph giving a bit of background on the piece, it helps place the work in the continuum of Lovecraft's writing career. I did not feel that they contained any major 'spoilers', but rather discussions of stylistic forms, date of first publication, and notes of interest such as rejection by a certain publisher. As a novice Lovecraft reader I found them helpful.

The book takes you more or less chronologically through Lovecraft's work, rather than grouping the stories by style or subject. I enjoyed being able to see how the author evolved over the course of his apprenticeship into the craftsman he was to become. You can see how other authors influenced him, and how he truly learned by doing, integrating ideas from his previous works into what became the Cthulu mythos.

This is a heavy book, in subject as well as mass, so it's not one to read nonstop in the course of a few days. This has held the place of honor on my nightstand for months, to be tasted in discreet and enjoyable morsels, mulled over and digested, then tasted again. It has certainly brought some interesting color to my dreams.

Thoroughly recommended!
