    Let's be frank: If you're considering this edition, you already know how you feel about Lovecraft. You've made your peace with his fulsome use of adjectival phrases, his contradictory claims that the things he insists on describing are in fact indescribable, and his terrifying abuse of dialect. You've probably even managed to steel yourself against his (historically contextualized but still disturbing) racism and misogyny. You've even debated about all of these things with your friends IRL and o Let's be frank: If you're considering this edition, you already know how you feel about Lovecraft. You've made your peace with his fulsome use of adjectival phrases, his contradictory claims that the things he insists on describing are in fact indescribable, and his terrifying abuse of dialect. You've probably even managed to steel yourself against his (historically contextualized but still disturbing) racism and misogyny. You've even debated about all of these things with your friends IRL and online, and about what it is about his alienated, nihilistic vision that still draws you to his eldritch horrors. You're here, considering this edition, because it (when paired with its companion volume) represents one of the few available truly complete collections of Lovecraft's fictional works, the only one I'm aware of containing the juvenalia, collaborations, and ghost-writings. You're here because this, more than any other edition, can help you understand Lovecraft's development as a writer. That's really the only reason to tackle the combined 1133 pages of this two-volume set. If you're here because you've heard this fellow Lovecraft mentioned somewhere and are just curious, turn back now and go find one of the selections edited by Joshi or Joyce Carol Oates. These volumes contain the good, the bad, and the ugly and are definitely not the place you want to start. For those of you who are in it for the long haul, there are still a few things you should know. * This edition is a print on demand, apparently (if my fellow reviewers can be believed) a labor of love compiled by an HPL fan. That's likely why it's completist, but it's also why there is no introduction or annotations in this set, and no explanation or details of any kind offered on HPL's relationship the collaborators whose joint work appears in the second volume. This edition offers text, but no context whatsoever. * The damn thing is incredibly unwieldy. The printed volumes are roughly 10" by 7", which makes them larger than most standard hardcover books. That's not so much an issue with the second volume, which is under 400 pages, but given that the first volume runs 758 pages, it's a bit of a brick. I usually do my reading at the gym, which was not an option with this edition. Even reading it curled up on the couch at home was a strain on my wrists, unless I propped it against something. * The print quality is not good. While mostly typo-free, this edition is bound cheaply, and by the time I got about halfway through volume one pages were beginning to come out. The covers, in addition to having lurid and nonsensical covers, also tend to curl and peel at the edges. Obviously, at least those last two issues could be avoided by purchasing the ebook editions of these volumes, but for those of you who like to hold your Necronomicon in your hot little hands, they're worth considering. Even with their flaws, the two volumes in this edition are a great value for the dedicated Lovecraft fan - I chose to read them as one long volume, flipping back and forth between the two in order to experience the precise chronology of their creation and it greatly helped me track the development of HPL's themes and language. Perhaps one day they'll be an edition that combines the completeness of these volumes with the scholarly annotations of some of the abbreviated ones on the market. Until then, this set is an invaluable piece of the puzzle that was H.P. Lovecraft.

    Great to dip into, Lovecraft never disappoints.
