30 Classic Horror Stories By H.P. Lovecraft - Volume 2
by Howard Phillips Lovecraft




Overview -
Howard Phillips Lovecraft - known as H.P.Lovecraft (August 20, 1890 - March 15, 1937) was an American author who achieved posthumous fame through his in uential works of horror ction. He was virtually unknown and published only in pulp magazines before he died in poverty, but he is now regarded as one of the most signi cant 20th-century authors in his genre. Lovecraft was born in Providence, Rhode Island where he spent most of his life. Lovecraft was never able to support himself from earnings as author and editor. He saw commercial success increasingly elude him in this latter period, partly because he lacked the con dence and drive to promote himself. He subsisted in progressively straitened circumstances in his last years; an inheritance was completely spent by the time that he died at age 46.According to Joyce Carol Oates, Lovecraft - as with Edgar Allan Poe in the 19th century - has exerted "an incalculable influence on succeeding generations of writers of horror fiction". Horror, fantasy, and science fiction author Stephen King called Lovecraft "the twentieth century's greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale." King has made it clear in his semi- autobiographical non-fiction book Danse Macabre that Lovecraft was responsible for King's own fascination with horror and the macabre, and was the single largest figure to influence his fiction writing.This classic title has been published by RADLEY BOOKS.
