This classic mind-shattering tale, which "ranks high among the horror stories of the English language," plunges into the darkness of the Cthulhu mythos (Time). In the uncharted wastes of Antarctica, an exploration party from Miskatonic University encounters a gory sight when they discover their advance team's camp has been destroyed and its members slaughtered. There is no evidence of what happened except a series of burial mounds, six of which contain dead specimens of unknown species. Eight similar tombs are empty, but they haven't been broken into--they've been broken out of. What began as a search for knowledge soon becomes a terrifying confrontation with the true nature of the world and the universe in all its stark blackness and unyielding oblivion. For mankind is not--and never has been--the bright light of creation. It's all a mistake, an insignificant stain of existence, forgotten by an unwitting and indifferent creator ... until now.

Interesting tale of terror in the backdrop of the Antarctic as an expedition discovers chilling evidence of unknown life forms. Can still be chilling for those have a good sense of thinking and imagination versus those that need every detail to be described to affect scariness.

One of Lovecraft's best stories.

Lovecraft has an older style of writing and embraces the use of long words and long descriptions. Similar to Poe in some ways except a bit more obscure.

Stories that have not aged particularly well. Very tame by horror standards of today or even in the last 30 years. I kept waiting for the terror moment which never came. At best, can be considered background reading for budding auteurs of the genre.
