The Cthulhu Mythos Fiction of Robert E. Howard Von Junzt. Mr. Howard spent his entire life (1795-1840) delving into forbidden subjects; he traveled in all parts of the world, gained entrance into innumberable secret societies, and read countless little-known and esoteric books and manuscripts in the original; and in the chapters of the Black Book, which range from startling clarity of exposition to murky ambiguity, there are statements and hints to freeze the blood of a thinking man. Reading what Von Junzt dared put in print arouses uneasy speculations as to what it was that he dared not tell. What dark matters, for instance, were contained in those closely written pages that formed the unpublished manuscript on which he worked unceasingly for months before his death, and which lay torn and scattered all over the floor of the locked and bolted chamber in which Von Junzt was found dead with the marks of taloned fingers on his throat? It will never be known, for the author's closest friend, the Frenchman Alexis Ladeau, after having spent the whole night piecing the fragments together and reading what was written, burnt them to ashes and cut his own throat with a razor. - Robert E. Howard, "The Black Stone" Robert E. Howard is the world-renowned author of the Conan series and the stories which were the basis of the recent Kull movie. He frequently corresponded with H.P. Lovecraft, and authored many pivotal Mythos tales. This book collects together all of Howard's Mythos tales, including those which originated Gol-Goroth, the Black Book (Unaussprechlichen Kulten), and Friedich Von Junzt - all the stories that are usually considered his Cthulhu Mythos yarns, plus another batch that make use of Arthur Machen's lore of the Little People and help fill out the picture implicit in a couple of the overt Mythos tales. A third group are tales which Howard did not intend in a Lovecraftian vein but which feature creations later assimilated into the Mythos, whether by Howard, Lovecraft, of later writers. Four Howard fragments are presented here with additional text by yours truly, C.J. Henderson, Joe Pluver, and August Derleth. Written by Robert E. Howard.
