Scary Books – The Stories of H. P. Lovecraft


Anything that I write here about H. P. Lovecraft is inadequate. His work has been reprinted continuously and there isn’t a fan of supernatural fiction that hasn’t read his stories Lovecraft’s influence on horror fiction is greater than any other writer. When he died in 1937 at the age of 46 he left behind a body of work that continues to entertain his growing legion of fans. And each generation brings forth yet another generation of followers. Creator of the Cthulhu mythos, his best known works are “The Rats in the Walls,” The Colour out of Space,” “At the Mountains of Madness,” “The Dreams in the Witch House,” and the Call of Cthulhu.” One of my personal favorites is “The Silver Key.” Lovecraft broke free from the constraints of Victorian writing and created his own unique blend of fiction. Often imitated and highly influential, Lovecraft’s lurking terrors will leave you mesmerized and chilled….to the bone!
