When Prof. William Dyer, a geologist from Miskatonic University, investigates an abandoned, hieroglyphed city forged with weird non-human geometry in the ice-wastes of Antarctica, he uncovers evidence of an ancient and cataclysmic war waged between races of malignant aliens: long before the advent of the human race, the Elder Ones battled for supremacy with the Star-spawn of Cthulhu, leaving behind a lurking protoplasm of unimaginable cosmic evil. At The Mountains Of Madness is a crucial work in Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, the author's first interpretation of his occult paroxysms in science-fictional terms, dating dark entities back to the primordial aeons of the Earth's existence. This new edition also includes Lovecraft's two other major science fantasy stories: The Whisperer In Darkness and The Shadow Out Of Time, plus the related poem-cycle Fungi From Yuggoth, and a new introduction by DM Mitchell (editor, The Starry Wisdom).
