This volume collects, for the first time, the entire Dream Cycle created by H. P. Lovecraft, the master of twentieth-century horror, including some of his most fantastic tales, such as:
"The Doom that Came to Sarnath" - Hate, genocide, and a deadly curse consume the land of Mnar.
"The Statement of Randolph Carter" - "You fool, Warren is 'dead'!"
"The Nameless City" - Death lies beneath the shifting sands, in a story linking the Dream Cycle with the legendary Cthulhu Mythos.
"The Cats of Ulthar" - In Ulthar, no man may kill a cat…and woe unto any who tries.
"The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath" - The epic nightmare adventure with tendrils stretching throughout the entire Dream Cycle.
Plus twenty more tales of surreal terror!

A mixed bag
This is a very mixed bag of Lovecraft stories and the collection itself is not well named. Not all of these stories are from Lovecraft's dream cycle and a couple don't seem Lovecraftian at all! Some of the early stories are incomplete but most are worth listening to.
I have read and listened to most of Lovecraft's stories and consider myself a fan. It's hard to pin down the appeal, I think it is the feel and antiquity of the stories. I don't know anyone else that reads Lovecraft and it always surprises me when I read how popular he is.
The Case of Charles Dexter Ward is my favourite Lovecraft story in this collection.
Only after buying this book did I realist that ALL of the stories contained are also in the Necronomicon or Eldritch tales. I would suggest you buy those 2 books and skip this one.
