A reclusive man, retreating to the Irish countryside with his sister, finds himself one day at the portal to another dimension. Years later, amid the crumbling ruins of his home, a pair of travelers find his diary and its horrifying details of the terrors that stalked his world — grotesque, swine-like monsters crawling from an abyss to swarm about the doors, fierce storms that threatened to unleash malevolent supernatural powers, and a harrowing vision of the death of the solar system."A classic of the first order," declared H. P. Lovecraft of this hugely influential novel. First published in 1908, it bridges the era between traditional ghost stories and modern fantasy. Modern readers will savor its compelling journey through space and time and its evocative blend of the best aspects of horror and science fiction.
