The planet Yith is the home of the Great Race, a place inspiring H.P. Lovecraft and other authors to pen classic tales of travel through time and space. In “The Shadow Out of Time" (here with new, purified text) there is implicit a very different view of Homo Sapiens’ origins, derived directly from the modern mythology of the Theosophical Society. Lovecraft often mentioned Theosophy as a kind of foil and precedent for his own Mythos in his stories. This collection includes tales of Yith both famous and obscure, replete with time travel, mind-exchange, and thrilling vistas of primordial history set in context that enables new readers and long-time Lovecraftian fans alike to enjoy them.
Includes short stories by H.P. Lovecraft, August W. Derleth, Richard L. Tierney and many others.
