No one but August Derleth could have captured so skilfully the mood and design of H. P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos and yet have done so in a manner all his own. 

The story is of the devious pursuit of Cthulhu, the search for his lair in sunken R'lyeh, of the danger from Cthulhu's minions, ever wary of detection and disclosure. It begins in a house on Curwen Street in legend-haunted Arkham, Massachusetts and ends on a shunned and mysterious island in the South Pacific. In between, the scene ranges from the Inca ruins near Machu Pichu to London, from the Nameless City of Irem -- in a memorable scene evoking the shade of the mad Arab Abdul Alhazred -- to Singapore. The result is a colourful and dramatic sequence of events which fits into place more pieces in the mosaic of the Cthulhu Mythos than any other fiction written since Lovecraft's.
