Staff Reviews


“Not included in the above collection, richly atmospheric, Lovecraft’s
account of the Miskatonic University’s doomed expedition to the
Antarctic is a clever scientific pastiche. Nothing like a geology
professor trying to describe strat that does not correspond to the
familiar nor a biologist describing fauna that should not exist. Even
though this story was written in the ‘30s, it wasn’t until the ‘50s that
the Russians discovered a vast mountain range buried under miles of ice
in the Antarctic. Prescient? Perhaps. There’s been talk of drilling to
explore the Gamburstevs; I would advise against that since things did
not go so well for Professor Lake and his party.”

Description


In H.P. Lovecraft's terrifying tale of science fiction and horror, an Antarctic geological expedition stumbles upon clues to an ancient alien civilization, and the origin of life on earth, but also awakens an ancient evil, a blasphemous darkness that threatens their very survival.

Widely acknowledged as one of the most astonishing and significant works modern horror fiction, influencing many films, ranging from Howard Hawks's The Thing from Another World to Ridley Scott's Alien and Prometheus, Lovecraft's tale is an evocative and terrifying story, full of rich, atmospheric description and a brooding sense of darkness and intangible evil.
