Descriptions du produit

Necronomicon WIKIPEDIA says: 'H.P. Lovecraft's reputation has grown tremendously over the decades, and he is now commonly regarded as one of the most important horror writers of the 20th century, exerting an influence that is widespread, though often indirect.' H.P. Lovecraft's tales of the tentacled Elder God Cthulhu and his pantheon of alien deities were initially written for the pulp magazines of the 1920s ... Full description

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A large selection of Lovecraft stories in one volume 10 février 2010
Par LynnJynh9315 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Those who have spent time researching H.P. Lovecraft are undoubtedly aware that the story collections edited by S.T. Joshi are considered vastly superior to all others. This edition, unfortunately, does not fall under that category, but opts to include the stories as they were originally published. Just the same, do not quickly dismiss this collection, for it still has a number of merits.

To start things out, here is the list of the works it includes:
"Night-Gaunts" (A great sonnet from "Fungi from Yuggoth")
"Dagon"
"The Statement of Randolph Carter"
"The Doom that Came to Sarnath"
"The Cats of Ulthar"
"The Nameless City"
"Herbert West--Reanimator"
"The Music of Erich Zann"
"The Lurking Fear"
"The Hound"
"The Rats in the Walls"
"Under the Pyramids"
"The Unnamable"
"In the Vault"
"The Outsider"
"The Horror at Red Hook"
"The Colour out of Space"
"Pickman's Model"
"The Call of Cthulhu"
"Cool Air"
"The Shunned House"
"The Silver Key"
"The Dunwich Horror"
"The Whisperer in Darkness"
"The Strange High House in the Mist"
"The Dreams in the Witch-House"
"From Beyond"
"Through the Gates of the Silver Key" (with E. Hoffman Price)
"At the Mountains of Madness"
"The Shadow over Innsmouth"
"The Shadow out of Time"
"The Haunter of the Dark"
"The Thing on the Doorstep"
"The Case of Charles Dexter Ward"
"The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath"
"To a Dreamer" (A final Lovecraft poem)
Afterword: A Gentleman of Providence by Stephen Jones

As can clearly be seen, this is quite a hefty and impressive collection, and it comes with a number of excellent illustrations that go a long way to immersing one in the HPL universe. As such, this collection is ideal as an introduction to the works of Lovecraft, but it isn't without a few shortcomings. Thus, a comparison of it's faults and merits would be:

--Pros--
-One of the largest collections of Lovecraft's works
-Contains a number of superb illustrations
-Enough of HPL's poetry to creat interest
-A very good Afterward on the author himself
-And some very good binding

--Cons--
-Does not include S.T. Joshi's "definitive" versions of the texts
-Contains ONLY enough Lovecraft poetry to wet the appetite
-Finally, "Shambler from the Stars" & "Shadow from the Steeple" by Robert Bloch (prequel & sequel to HPL's "Haunter of the Dark") are not included in this book

Ultimately, if you are truly interested in Lovecraft, you'll need to get more than just this collection. "The Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos" should net you the aforementioned stories by Robert Bloch, and "The Ancient Track: The Complete Poetical Works of H. P. Lovecraft" should satisfy the need for the author's verse, but there are still a large number of HPL's stories missing from this collection. For a more complete collection of Lovecraft's stories, one would do well to purchase the following four "corrected text" editions of S.T. Joshi: "At the Mountains of Madness and Other Novels", "Dagon and Other Macabre Tales", "The Dunwich Horror and Others", and "The Horror in the Museum and Other Revisions"

In the end, you will be satisfied with this purchase... but if you're really into Lovecraft, you'll probably not be FULLY satisfied with it. It makes a great intoduction to the superb fiction of HPL, but the fabled "Complete Tales and Poems of H.P. Lovecraft" has yet to be published. Here's to hoping it someday will be....

PS: I would start by reading:
"The Dunwich Horror" (my favorite), "The Shadow Over Innsmouth", "The Rats in the Walls", "The Silver Key", "The Thing on the Doorstep" and finally "The Whisperer in Darkness" ... but that's just me.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Get the Library of America collection instead... 21 mai 2008
Par Jeremy Reaban - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
I bought this book in the belief that it was a complete collection of HPL's works (or close to it). Instead it's pretty much just the major stuff found in most big collections, missing a few of my notable favorites (Arthur Jermyn, The Temple, He, The Festival, etc ) as well as missing a lot of the obscure stuff (The Evil Clergymen for instance, plus his really early stuff).

And please note that the description is wrong, it's not over a 1000 pages, it's only 880, including a 50 page essay on Lovecraft. While interesting, I wish that space had been used for some of his missing stories. It could be the regular UK version has more, but Amazon.com seems to be selling the shorter, "Export" edition.

It's got a few stories that the Library of America collection doesn't (but not that many), most notably more of the Dreamlands stuff. But you also don't have any annotations or notes like the Library of America collection. There are some illustrations

This is pretty cheap, but at the same time, it's not the best Lovecraft experience, nor complete. I was really hoping to get all his stories in one big book (as it had been billed in some quarters). But this was a complete waste of my money. The paper and binding is also very cheap.

Only if you are completely new to Lovecraft is it worth a look.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good-enough compilation of Great Lovecraft material at a Fair Price 7 janvier 2010
Par Mike - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I'm not going to bother reviewing the fiction in the volume. It's by H.P. Lovecraft, it's absolutely fantastic horror fiction that transcends the genre and what's included is all of his best stuff. I will assume, that like any literary type (or horror fan), you are not here to decide - "Should I buy Lovecraft's books?". I'm assuming you know that like Poe, you need a Lovecraft selected (or complete) works on your shelf - the question then is "Which edition is best suited to my needs?"

So, I'm going to focus on why this book is a good purchase - it has 36 stories, including the big ones. It's affordably priced. It looks really nice on a shelf and it's very pleasant to read in the hands and on the eyes. The drawback is it's big and the binding is so-so. The only one-volume competition is really the Library of America "Tales" collection with 22 tales. It has better binding and a better critical apparatus (e.g. footnotes). That one's a bit more expensive though and has some other problems.

I would recommend either this volume or the Library of America to someone looking for a single volume collection. If you're a collector or own the Library of America "Tales" book, this probably isn't worth a purchase because you have most of the stories.

Personally, I prefer this one because the pages are thicker and I find the text easier on my eyes. The Library of America edition is much smaller and has ultra-thin pages with relatively small text. If you have good eyesight, that might be a better choice since physically it's smaller, but I had difficulty reading it. This edition sits like a Bible on the shelf towering above other books. The gold ink on the spine looks very classy and ominous and it's easy to find amongst my bookshelves. The binding is not great, but it's good enough and on par with most oversized mass market paperbacks.

There are better Lovecraft collections out there. I believe the Arkham has Lovecraft in his entirety, there are the Joshi volumes edited from the original proofs rather than the published editions - of note to the purists, but this is the best one for most people, myself included. $18 for 36 Lovecraft stories and short fiction! It's an uncanny deal. It towers, cyclopean, above other such editions at that price.

If you want a shorter volume (admittedly this is quite large physically) - the Del-Rey's might fit your needs. It's cheaper, too. The collectors and completists love the Arkham ones. If you're buying for a library, the Library of America is a better pick, both because of its standard size, because it's bound better and because of the critical apparatus and lastly because of snob appeal - the tales were "selected" by Joyce Carol Oates (the tales selected aren't much different than this volume though).

I think this is the best single volume reading edition because it's easy to read, it has the best selection of stories and it's an attractive volume. Recommended.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Prepared to get scared (for ancillary reasons)! 2 septembre 2013
Par S. Duong - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
When I happened upon this book, the reviews set me up to expect an extremely well-put together compilation of Lovecraft's greatest works. Apparently, these people have never held a properly produced hardcover book, because the Necronomicon is anything but.

Looking at the cover, you'll notice that, if you're savvy with computer design, that the title's font is that generic "I'm ye olde" font that you might see around town. It's extremely off-putting and amateurish for a book to do this, especially if this is the most common Lovecraft compilation on both Amazon and Chapters, driving away potential readers. And no, the font isn't as illegible nor is it off-centre as the cover image on the Amazon page suggests, but with that pretentious font style, that's the least of your worries.

If you're planning on collecting this, you better handle that book with more care than nitroglycerin, because the actual cover is astonishingly thin. This cover is thinner than most hardcovers you can find when you walk in a Chapters, which is worrying for a book of this size compared to considerably smaller books. And to boot, the cover's not springy, nor is there marbling on the cover pages, which are both endemic to old books and the source material. OK, so you're just going to put it on your bookshelf? Not with the off-centre font and art, you won't!

Fine, so you want to read this and possibly pass this on to your grandkids to traumatize them? Good luck with that! The binding on this book is possibly the worst and most disappointing feature ever to plague a book of this size. The actual glue is white, so you can pretend there's no binding at all and wonder why you spent ~$20 on this. But get this: no backing to the binding other than the spine! Come on! Even a short book like William Shakespeare's Star Wars has backing, along with some sewing. Now when I crack the spine, which I'm extremely hesitant to do, I have to do so very carefully lest this thing falls in half and breaks my floor. The task of reading this book is a nightmare in and of itself, as the pages are shockingly thin so you can see the text on the next page. Either that, or the ink seeped through the page. Neither possibilities are suitable.

If you do handle this book like a nuke, then you will be happy to find that yes, this book DOES have Call of Cthulu and the other popular Lovecraft stories that you're dying to put down ~$20 for. It's just, the book is so poorly put together, that you just have to ask yourself just like I did: is this really worth it?

I dub thee: the Samsung of books, for your pretentiously flimsy build quality and remarkable popularity.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Worthy 3 octobre 2008
Par SIN - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I had been trying to obtain a worthy volume of HPL's works for quite sometime. I'm never satisfied with what is out there, to my surprise, I discovered this publication! It's as close as you are going to get to having a 'full' collection, as it includes most of his major works. The cover is impressive for a softcover and the artwork that accompanies each story is fantastic!
