    Frank Utpatel - The Inhabitant of the Lake Cover Original Art (Arkham House, 1964). Frank Utpatel's cover art captures the eerie ambiance of J. Ramsey Campbell's first published book, The Inhabitant of the Lake and Less Welcome Tenants. This tome of terror held ten tales of horror in the tradition of H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos. The art is drawn in charcoal, with the type affixed on a mylar overlay. The color behind the logo is cut paper affixed to the overlay. The image area of the cover measures 14.5" x 18.5" and is in Excellent condition. Arkham House fan-addicts may be somewhat haunted if they don't put a bid in on this monster-work!
