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


At the Mountains of Madness is a novella by horror writer H. P. Lovecraft, written in February/March 1931 and originally serialized in the February, March and April 1936 issues of Astounding Stories. It has been reproduced in numerous collections since Lovecraft's death. Lovecraft scholar S. T. Joshi describes the novella as representing the decisive "demythology" of the Cthulhu Mythos by reinterpreting Lovecraft's earlier supernatural stories in a science fiction paradigm.
