After hearing rumours of a 'lurking fear' in the region of Tempest Mountain, the curious narrator is compelled to launch his own investigation into the mysterious claims. What unfolds is a dastardly and horrific tale of thrilling intrigue, once again masterfully composed by the legendary artisan of horror fiction: H.P. Lovecraft. A must-read for any connoisseur of horror fiction and a worthy addition to any Lovecraftian collection, The Lurking Fear is a short story that will appeal to fans of both horror and mystery fiction, and shall most certainly be read with the lights switched on. H.P. Lovecraft is a masterful horror fiction writer whose work continues to be highly influential in popular culture and beyond. Virtually unknown whilst alive and dying in poverty, H.P. Lovecraft was to become one of the most significant writers in the horror fiction genre posthumously thanks to a number of seminal works such as Call of Cthulhu (1928) and At the Mountains of Madness (1936). Originally published in 1923, this book is republished now with an additional biography of the author.
