Lovecraft's terrifying tales have influenced generations of horror writers. His otherworldly visions of cosmic horrors, alien beings, and a world not quite our own remain immensely powerful and able to terrify even the most resolute readers. This collection spans the breadth of Lovecraft's literary career, from his early forays into the Dreamlands to his mature writings of the Cthulhu mythos. H. P. Lovecraft's petrifying yet fascinating stories took their inspiration from a multitude of literary influences, including the mysterious Arabian Nights, the capricious deities and heroes of Greek mythology, and the lyrical horrors of the gothic tales told to him by his grandfather. His writing gave voice to the belief that there are some things in this world that can never be understood. This collection features several of H. P. Lovecraft's most iconic tales, including: The Call of Cthulhu The Whisperer in Darkness The Thing on the Doorstep The Lurking Fear The Shadow Over Innsmouth The Shunned House From Beyond Pickman's Model The Nameless City The Dreams in the Witch House

Texte intégral révisé suivi d'une biographie de Howard Phillips Lovecraft. Recueil de cinq nouvelles: "Par-delà le mur du sommeil", "Les rats dans les murs", "Le monstre sur le seuil", "Celui qui hantait les ténèbres" et "L'affaire Charles Dexter Ward". - "Nous pouvons deviner que, dans nos rêves, la vie et la matière, telles que nous les trouvons dans notre monde, ne sont pas nécessairement constantes; que le temps et l’espace n’existent pas tels que nous les comprenons à l’état de veille. Parfois, je crois que la vie matérielle n’est pas notre vie véritable, et que notre futile présence sur le globe terrestre est un simple phénomène secondaire ou virtuel." - H. P. Lovecraft.

Outside his native France, the view of Serge Gainsbourg was once of a one-hit wonder lothario. This has been slowly replaced by an awareness of how talented and innovative a songwriter he was. Gainsbourg was an eclectic, protean figure; a Dadaist, poà ̈te maudit, Pop-Artist, libertine and anti-hero. An icon and iconoclast. His masterpiece is arguably Histoire de Melody Nelson, an album suite combining many of his signature themes; sex, taboo, provocation, humour, exoticism and ultimately tragedy. Composed and arranged with the great Jean-Claude Vannier, its score of lush cinematic strings and proto-hip hop beats, combined with Serge's spoken-word poetry, has become remarkably influential across a vast musical spectrum; inspiring soundtracks, indie groups and electronic artists. In recent years, the album's reputation has grown from cult status to that of a modern classic with the likes of Beck, Portishead, Mike Patton, Air and Pulp paying tribute. How did the son of Jewish Russian immigrants, hounded during the Nazi Occupation, rise to such notoriety and acclaim, being celebrated by President François Mitterand as "our Baudelaire, our Apollinaire"? How did the early chanson singer evolve into a musical visionary incorporating samples, breakbeats and dub into his music, decades ahead of the curve? And what are the roots and legacy of a concept album about a Rolls Royce, a red-haired Lolita muse, otherworldly mansions, plane crashes and Cargo Cults?

Jamie Carpenter's father is dead, his mother is missing, and he was just rescued by an enormous creature named Frankenstein. Now Jamie is pulled into a secret organization responsible for policing the supernatural, founded more than a century ago by Abraham Van Helsing. . . . Department Nineteen takes us through history, across Europe, and beyond - from the cobbled streets of Victorian London to prohibition-era New York, from the icy wastes of Arctic Russia to the treacherous mountains of Transylvania. Part modern thriller, part classic horror, it's packed with mystery, mayhem, and a level of suspense that makes a Darren Shan novel look like a romantic comedy.

Ne pas se demander si le meurtre du Dr Claire Argent est lié au travail qu'elle faisait au Starkweather Hospital serait insensé. Dans cet établissement particulièrement sinistre sont en effet enfermés des assassins que la justice n'a pu condamner parce qu'ils sont fous. Sauf que, bien sûr, ils sont aussi surveillés de près et que même s'ils parvenaient à s'enfuir, les médicaments dont on les bourre auraient vite raison de leurs forces. Et pourtant... Comment se fait-il que quelques jours avant le meurtre, le monstre Ardis Peake (il a tué toute sa famille et s'apprêtait à la dévorer quand on l'a arrêté) ait déclaré "Docteur A, vilains yeux dans une boîte" et que personne n'y ait prêté attention ? Telle est une des questions clés auxquelles doit répondre l'inspecteur Milo Sturgis s'il veut boucler son enquête et ainsi prévenir d'autres meurtres qui s'annoncent.

Ce volume réunit quatre pièces d'Agota Kristof. Le Monstre : Un animal gigantesque est tombé dans un piège. La population du village ne parvient pas à le tuer : à défaut d'y parvenir, voilà que des gens se mettent à l'aimer. La bête sentait mauvais, mais à présent des fleurs poussent sur son dos, sécrétant un parfum exquis. Un seul homme désire encore sa disparition. La Route : La terre est entièrement couverte de béton. Les questions sont : Où mènent les routes. Ont-elles une fin ? Pourquoi les directions ? Pourquoi la marche ? Les sorties existent-elles ? Sont-elles vraies ou fausses ? L'Épidémie : Un village est placé en quarantaine, les habitants ayant contracté le virus du suicide. Sauveur délivre une jeune fille qu'il a trouvée pendue dans la forêt, mais Sauvée, dès qu'elle retrouve la vie, se montre bien peu reconnaissante. L'Expiation : Un aveugle qui joue de l'harmonica. Un sourd qui crache du feu. Par économie, ils occupent le même lit chez une vieille marchande de sommeil. Ils sont sales et misérables, mais on est prié de ne pas trop s'apitoyer. Ce serait trop simple. Agota Kristof, née en Hongrie, est l'auteur de quatre romans traduits dans une trentaine de langues. Un premier recueil théâtral, L'Heure grise, a été publié en 1998.
