The Quest for Cthulhu
August Derleth

July 2000
Paperback

Book Description
Brilliantly imagined by the late H. P. Lovecraft, the mythical cycle of Cthulhu is expanded and enriched in this one-volume edition of tales that only August Derleth, Lovecraft's friend and collaborator, could have produced. With the marvelously inventive novel The Trail of Cthulhu and the six remarkable stories of mythic horror included in The Mask of Cthulhu, Derleth maps the strange destinies intertwined in the quest for the ancient god Cthulhu. Under the spell of Lovecraft's imagination, Derleth weaves new horrors like the hideous eldritch deity Yog-Sothoth lurking in the New England wood of "The Whippoorwills in the Hills" and the bodiless Lloigor who breaks an occult contract to terrifying effect in "The Sandwin Compact." And in "The Seal of R'lyeh," the dreadful link between the Massachusetts town of Innsmouth...


The Lurker at the Threshold

Book Description
He is not to open the door which leads to the strange time and place, nor to invite Him Who lurks at the threshold ..." went the warning in the old family manuscript that Ambrose Dewart discovered when he returned to his ancestral home in the deep woods of rural Massachusetts. Dewart's investigations into his family's sinister past eventually lead to the unspeakable revelations of The Great Old Ones who wait on the boundaries of space and time for someone to summon them to earth. Acclaimed cult horror writer H. P. Lovecraft's notes and outlines for this tale of uncanny terror were completed by August Derleth, his friend and future publisher. Of the many Lovecraft-Derleth "posthumous collaborations," The Lurker at the Threshold remains the most popular, having sold 50,000 copies in its previous edition alone.

Book Description
From its incorporation in 1847 in Wisconsin Territory to its first run in 1851—twenty miles between Milwaukee and Waukesha—to its later position of far-flung power, the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad Company had a vivid history. By 1948, the Milwaukee Road had more than 40,000 employees and maintained more than 10,000 miles of line in twelve states from Indiana to Washington. Also in 1948, August Derleth's popular and well-crafted corporate history celebrated the strength and status of this mighty carrier. On February 19, 1985, the railroad became a subsidiary of Soo Line Corporation and its identity vanished overnight. Nonetheless, it remains a romantic memory, and Derleth's book remains the only complete history of this innovative and dynamic railroad. Introduction by Roger H. Grant. ...
