Ask a question

The Book of Three Gates compiles newly edited editions of H.P. Lovecraft’s public domain stories of eldritch horror, illustrated by renowned deific and fantasy artist, Valerie Herron (The Book of the Great Queen, The Book of Starry Wisdom).

Accompanied by essays and musings by some of today’s premiere Lovecraftian scholars, writers, and devotees, The Book of Three Gates is a luxurious 11.25" x 8.5", 175 page hardback tome, featuring a faux-leather textured cover with gold foil pressed symbols of significance to the Opener of Ways, 12 interior B&W illustrations, and end papers displaying an original map of the Township of Dunwich and the surrounding Miskatonic River Valley. This premium volume is a companion to The Book of Starry Wisdom and will be a stunning addition to the library of any enthusiast of H.P. Lovecraft or worshiper of the Old Ones.

The Book of Three Gates centers upon three of Lovecraft's stories in which the ways between worlds have been shattered, transgressed, or violated:

The Dunwich Horror
The Dreams in the Witch House
The Haunter of the Dark

The Book of Three Gates, like its companion volume, The Book of Starry Wisdom, is meant to provide an immersive experience. Lovecraft's stories are full of hideous tomes of forbidden knowledge, and these editions will make the reader feel that they are delving into those unspeakable horrors just like the protagonists of stories like The Dunwich Horror, or The Dreams in the Witch House. To that end the stories are accompaniedpaired these stories with a selection of superb writers tasked with eroding the fourth wall between Lovecraft's fiction and fact.
