Brian Lumley - The Taint and Other Novellas $4.99 (US) [Horror] (Amazon/B&N)

This is another ebook published by Subterranean Press, so cheaper than what the rest of his ebooks are going for.

Cthulhu Mythos tales. 416 paperback pages. There are 7 novellas included:

1. The Horror at Oakdeene
2. Born of the Winds
3. The Fairground Horror.
4. The Taint
5. Rising With Surtsey
6. Lord of the Worms
7. The House of the Temple


Product Description
Prior to the first American publication of Brian Lumley s ground-breaking, dead-waking, best-selling Necroscope?? in 1988 -- the first novel in a long-lived, much-loved series -- this British author had for twenty years been earning himself something of a reputation writing short stories, novellas, and a series of novels set against H. P. Lovecraft's cosmic Cthulhu Mythos backdrop. A soldier in 1967, serving in Berlin with the Royal Military Police, Lumley jump-started his literary career by writing to August Derleth, the then dean of macabre publishers at his home in Sauk City, Wisconsin, telling of his fascination with the Mythos, and purchasing books by the Old Gentleman of Providence, RI. In addition, he sent a page or two of written work allegedly culled from the various forbidden or black books of the Mythos. Suitably impressed, the master of Arkham House invited Lumley to write something solid in the Mythos as a possible contribution to a new volume he was currently contemplating, to be titled -- what else but? -- Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos. And as might well be imagined, that set everything in motion.

Forty years have passed since then and a good many words of Mythos fiction written, including critically acclaimed and award-nominated work, stories that have appeared in prestigious magazines such as Fantasy & Science Fiction, and hardcover volumes from publishers all over the world from the USA to China and the United Kingdom to Russia. But while Lumley's novels are all currently available, many of them in hardcover format, his Mythos short stories and novellas have until now remained uncollected. Subterranean Press is proud to correct that omission in volumes that are guaranteed to be the pride of any collector's library of Mythos works other than tales written by H. P. Lovecraft himself.
