H P Lovecraft


(Howard Phillips Lovecraft)
USA flag (1890 - 1937)

H. P. Lovecraft was born in 1890 in Providence, Rhode Island, where he lived most of his life. He wrote many essays and poems early in his career, but gradually focused on the writing of horror stories, after the advent in 1923 of the pulp magazine Weird Tales, to which he contributed most of his fiction. His relatively small corpus of fiction--three short novels and about sixty short stories--has nevertheless exercised a wide influence on subsequent work in the field, and he is regarded as the leading twentieth-century American author of supernatural fiction. H. P. Lovecraft died in Providence in 1937.

Books about H P Lovecraft

H P Lovecraft recommends
thumb
The Amber Witch (1844)
William Meinhold
"Meinhold's great strength is his air of casual and realistic verisimilitude, which intensifies our suspense and sense of the unseen by half persuading us that the menacing events must somehow be either the truth or very close to the truth."
thumb
The Frozen Pirate (1887)
W Clark Russell
"I read it in my youth - and was utterly fascinated by it... writing several yarns of my own under its influence."
thumb
The Gods of Pegana (1905)
Lord Dunsany
"Dunsany stands dedicated to strange and lovely worlds of fantastic beauty. To the truly imaginative he is a talisman and a key unlocking rich store houses of dreams."
thumb
The Boats of the Glen Carrig (1907)
(Trilogy of the Abyss, book 1)
William Hope Hodgson
"Few can equal Hodgson...in Glen Carrig there is vast power in the suggestion of lurking worlds and beings behind the ordinary surface of life."
thumb
The Heads of Cerberus (1919)
Francis Stevens
"The top grade of writers."
thumb
The Double Shadow (1933)
Clark Ashton Smith
"None strikes the note of cosmic horror as well as Clark Ashton Smith. In sheer daemonic strangeness and fertility of conception, Smith is perhaps unexcelled by any other writer."
thumb
The Black Flame (1939)
Stanley G Weinbaum
"Somehow [Weinbaum] had the imagination to envisage wholly alien situations and psychologies and entities, to devise consistent events from wholly alien motives and to refrain from the cheap dramatics in which all adventure-pulpists wallow."
thumb
For the Blood Is the Life (1996)
F Marion Crawford
"Crawford's weird Masterpiece is one of the most tremendous horror stories in all literature."
