This volume is a carefully chosen collection of five stories that reflect the close relationship between Mr. Eddy and H.P. Lovecraft, author of the weird and macabre, as creative writers and friends. Three of the stories in this book, "Pilgrimage of Peril", "The Vengeful Vision", and "A Solitary Solution", were written during the Lovecraftian association. A fourth "Miscreant from Murina", was completed in 1951. The fifth story "Black Noon", started by Mr. Eddy in 1967 but not completed due to his death, and published here in its unfinished form, is a fictionalized parallelism of the late C.M. Eddy,Jr. and H.P. Lovecraft literary liasion.

Born in 1896,C.M. Eddy, Jr. was a native of Providence, RI. He wrote many short stories that were published in the pulps back in the 1920's, most notably WEIRD TALES, MUNSEY'S MAGAZINE and SNAPPY STORIES to name a few. He was a good friend to H.P. Lovecraft in Providence, and the two of them used to take long walks in the darkness of the night to various parts of the city and beyond to conjure up some new tale of the macabre. He died in 1967.
