my fav so far has been "tales of h.p. lovecraft" selected and edited by joyce carol oates. it's a Harper Collins book. it starts with some cool stories then sends you deep into the cthulhu mythos. and Del Ray does a cool series with some wicked cover illustrations.
i'm waiting for a publisher to get everything h.p. wrote into a single book. so far i've had to buy four.
cool, once I finish house of leaves and have time over winter holiday I will check out the lovecraft , BTW here is a fun little game based on re-animator check it out , beat a score of 104 [link]
very cool art style too
