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.

H P Lovecraft recommends

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."
thumb
A Martian Odyssey (1962)
Stanley G Weinbaum
"The imagination to envisage wholly alien situations and psychologies and entities, to devise consistent events from wholly alien motives ... a light touch - and genuine suspense..."
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."
