Lovecraft has been suggested and requested many times, so I think it is a must do. What should we read of his? Any suggestions?

I've read Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos that included not only short stories by Lovecraft, but also others authors. I thought it was ok, some stories are really creepy.

Laura Davis | 1 comments I recently read a really fun (scary) novella, which was a nod to Lovecraft and the Cthulu mythos. It's called "All Hope Lost" by Faith Van Horne.

Megg | 7 comments I like the idea of picking some of his short stories to read & discuss. You can purchase the complete collection of his short stories for just .99 at Amazon for Kindle.

Jenn Estepp (quietjenn) | 3 comments Oh, I'm very excited that we're going to dive into Lovecraft, and I think that the idea of picking a handful of stories is a good one.

What about The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories as the hard copy text for people who want to buy or borrow a physical book? And if we skip talking about the introduction or whatever (I *do* tend to skip introductions anyway), all of the stories in this one are available free online or in the .99 compilations that Megg mentioned.

I should also add that anyone can read whatever collection or story that they would like... it will just be so great to discuss this author!
