really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy, horror

This is just the latest collection of H. P. Lovecraft that I've had. Mostly (early on) you had to find paper bck collections and older pulp collections. Of late the world has "discovered" him "again" (along with his contemporary and friend Robert E. Howard).

I am not primarily a "horror" fan but Lovecraft is just...different. Lf a writer can achive terror, that is creat the atmosphere and emotions without resorting constantly to the gross-out school of horror he's got my attention. I like some good horror or supernatural fiction (Ghost Story by Straub, several of Dean Koontz books etc.) and Lovercraft broke new ground that has been heavily "plowed" by other writers since his death.

I particularly his Cthulhu stories which i to have built upon.

Try it and see if it's your cup of bloo..... errrr....I mean tea. bwahahahaha
