Michael Whelan's Lovecraft Covers
Known as "Lovecraft's Nightmare Part 1 and 2, these have always been among my favorite covers for a Lovecraft book. During my teen years it was the books with these covers that I was introduced to the works of Lovecraft so that probably adds to my appreciation of them. Enjoy...

I've been looking for these online for years, ever since I first got the books with these great works of art on the covers as presents years ago. Thanks! May you be eaten first!
