On an expedition to Antarctica, Professor William Dyer and his colleagues discover the remains of ancient half-vegetable, half-animal life-forms. The extremely early date in the geological strata is surprising because of the highly-evolved features found in these previously unknown life-forms. Through a series of dark revelations, violent episodes, and misunderstandings, the group learns of Earth&#39;s secret history and legacy.<br>At the Mountains of Madness is a very good introduction to Lovecraft&#39;s mythology of the Old Ones and the glories and horrors that preceded humankind and that still linger in places. It is a good novella on it&#39;s own, and helpful to understanding events and creatures in his other works.<br><br>This new edition of Lovecraft&#39;s masterpiece includes two essays &quot;Notes On Writing Weird Fiction&quot; and &quot;Supernatural Horror in Literature&quot;.&Acirc; <br><br>This book has been specially formatted for devices that support EPUB3.
