Lovecraft Illustrated Volume 4 - The Shadow out of Time

Pete Von Sholly, ilustración para The Shadow Out of Time (2015)

If you are reading The Shadow Out of Time for the first time I hope it’s one of those experiences you’ll never forget, as it was for me. The sheer scope of earth’s history, pre-history and the projections of a bleak future is staggering and, as usual with Lovecraft when he goes all “cosmic”, the human race is just a bit player in an epic pageant of life as it moves through the universe. Even our planet is only a stepping stone for the Great Race. And of course there’s a monstrous undercurrent of ill wind and ill will stirring in hidden ruins where the mind-destroying truth is written and where it waits and waits for our hapless hero to stumble upon it!

—Pete Von Sholly

The text used is the next-to-last corrected text edited by S. T. Joshi (his final version of all Lovecraft's texts may be found in H. P. LOVECRAFT COLLECTED FICTION: A VARIORUM EDITION, publish'd by Hippocampus Press). This small yet substantial volume is brilliantly illustrated by Pete Von Sholly, contains 13 (counting jacket) illustrations and/or photos by Sholly, a majority of them presented as two-page spread. The text of the tale has suffered in its early publications, including the Arkham House books; but the discovery of Lovecraft's original autograph manuscript, on the afternoon of January 17, 1995, has helped to restore the text so that it represents Lovecraft's authorial intentions.
