Les Edwards
The Second Wish and Other Exhalations, oils on board, 1994.

Les's Notes:

"Cover for a collection of stories by Brian Lumley and published by Hodder. Stories by Brian Lumley in Lovecraftian mode hence the Mythos references in the background." - prints available here.


Hot Favourites, oils on board, 1980.

Les's Notes:

"Advert for Wiggins Alloys. Also used on the cover of Fantasy Tales and on a French paperback." - Prints available here.
The Necronomicon: Night Gaunts, ink on paper, 2007.

"Les's Notes:

One of several full-page interior artworks for the new Gollancz edition of the H.P. Lovecraft collection Necronomicon: The Best Weird Fiction of H.P. Lovecraft, edited by Stephen Jones. I knew I wanted to do this image even before the job was finalised and it was the first one I drew." - prints available here.

Dagon's Bell and Other Discords, oils on board, 1994.

Les's Notes:

"Commissioned by Hodder Headline (New English Library) for the cover of a collection of stories inspired by H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos, written by Brian Lumley." - prints available here.


Les is responsible for one of the most wicked interpretations of a Clive Barker story, Rawhead Rex. His version of Rawhead Rex, plain and simple, is fucking evil.
