Good editorial selection of characteristic Lovecraft works. Get this for the footnotes, commentary, and illustrations. A lot of the footnotes have to do with linking particular locations and people with those from Lovecraft's own life. This would be great for someone interested in dabbling in Lovecraft scholarship.

“The New Annotated H. P. Lovecraft is a towering intellectual feast for devotees of Lovecraft and weird fiction. Hugely informative as well as entertaining, this book is both visually beautiful and academically rigorous. It provides more information on the great New England supernaturalist than almost any other book ever published.”

Gorgeous writing but didn't give me any scares whatsoever. If you are looking for horror, than look elsewhere.

Difficult to finish in the allotted time. Comprehensive. The footnotes can get to be a bit much if you're not a scholar (I'm not) and they can break the flow of the story. If you just want the written works perhaps look for them one-by-one. I do appreciate the book;I don't want to sound negative. Just plan on multiple trips to the library :)
