Thread: Lovecraft

  1. #1

    Lovecraft

    So, I'd like some interesting classic by this writer. I'm at the end of The Stand by Stephen King and now I'm thinking about what next?

    Suggest.



    EDIT:
    Forgot, I have Wells' "War of The Worlds" sitting on my shelf. Its rather short, so after 200 pages of The Stand and War of The Worlds, what Lovercraft's novel to read?

    H. P. Lovecraft? I'd say that you'd be best at picking out one of the collections of his stories... I don't think there were a lot of novels. Most of it was stories that were printed in the pulp magazines of the early part of the 20th century like Weird Tales.

    Here's a bibliography...

    Re: Lovecraft

    At The Mountains of Madness is a "novella"...basically the longest story he ever wrote

    Very good!

    Many famous writers have dabbled and contributed stories to the Cthulhu Mythos (the world/universe setting that all his stories are based around)

    The Tomb & The Festival were 2 of the first short stories of his I read back in high school and was instantly hooked

    Lovecraft was a pen pal of Robert E Howard as well!!!

    Enjoy!

    Hey Alek, did you ever check out Swan Song ?

    Nice topic in these forums. I'm a huge fan of Lovecraft and Howard and a collector of Weird Tales magazine. I have some stories like original HPL's story (fist time ever released): "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward" from May 1941 1st print. I've seen that only one time for sale in eBay and I had to buy it :P I have also some other original prints from HPL and REH + loads of different later collections.
