    1. H.P. Lovecraft S.T. Joshi Robert Bloch

      Howard Phillips Lovecraft, of Providence, Rhode Island, was an American author of horror, fantasy and science fiction.Lovecraft s major inspiration and invention was cosmic horror life is incomprehensible to human minds and the universe is fundamentally alien Those who genuinely reason, like his protagonists, gamble with sanity Lovecraft has developed a cult following for his Cthulhu Mythos, a series of loosely interconnected fictions featuring a pantheon of human nullifying entities, as well as the Necronomicon, a fictional grimoire of magical rites and forbidden lore His works were deeply pessimistic and cynical, challenging the values of the Enlightenment, Romanticism and Christianity Lovecraft s protagonists usually achieve the mirror opposite of traditional gnosis and mysticism by momentarily glimpsing the horror of ultimate reality.Although Lovecraft s readership was limited during his life, his reputation has grown over the decades He is now commonly regarded as one of the most influential horror writers of the 20th Century, exerting widespread and indirect influence, and frequently compared to Edgar Allan Poe.

    1. 1978 Jove mass-market with cover art from the always excellent Rowena Morrill.(Full review 1/19/17)This version of the book doesn't feature all the stories listed on this page (which is for the Arkham House editions). It includes: "In the Vault," Pickman's Model," "The Rats in the Walls," "The Music of Erich Zann," "The Haunter of the Dark," "The Dunwich Horror," and "The Thing on the Doorstep," most of which are top-tier Lovecraft, imo, ones I hadn't read in 20 years or so until now. It also fe [...]

    2. 4.5 stars. Outstanding collection of H.P Lovecraft stories. The Dunwich Horror is an amazing story that reads as well today as when it was first written. Lovecraft was a unique talent and his stories are just a ton of fun.

    3. This book was my first exposure to H. P. Lovecraft, way back in 1991 or so. I was eleven years old. The book shook my world to its very foundations. At the time, isaac Asimov was my favourite writer, but Lovecraft showed me how to appreciate moody, lapidary writing full of atmosphere and dripping with menace. I gave the book five stars mostly because of its revelatory impact on me and my personality, even though if I had discovered Lovecraft for the first time today, especially being familiar no [...]

    4. As Howard wanted, many have tried over the years to expound on his Cthulhu Mythos; few even came close. I believe he named man's strongest emotion as Fear, with the greatest Fear being that of the unknown.Did you ever overcome your own fear enough to actually Look under your bed when you just Knew Some Unknown Thing was there?Nah, neither have I.

    5. Listening as I work on computer projects youtu/7NydhWxfDeU?list=PLG I'm becoming addicted to HP Lovecraft stories.

    6. Fajny dobór opowiadań, fajny styl tłumaczenia i Lovecraft ;)Horror i trwoga wyprodukowana przez umysł początku XX wieku - czasu rewolucji naukowej na polu astronomii i fizyki, gdy wszechświat ówczesnych ludzi powiększył się ze skali jednej galaktyki do rozmiarów o wiele rzędów większych, czas trwania wszechświata wydłużył się do miliardów lat, a do tego materia okazała się skrywać niesamowitą ilość energii. Jakaż epoka bardziej była odpowiednia, by poczuć strach prze [...]

    7. love this book! it genuinely gave me the creeps and was interesting to read. I would highly recommend it. the story sucked me in and I loved the finale ending.

    8. Like a lot of other mopey adolescents, I devoured H.P. Lovecraft when I was in high school; I owned several collections of his short stories and novellas. I remember loving his unwholesome, horrifying vision of Earth's past, present and future. Inspired by an article that recently appeared on a favorite pop culture website, I decided to say hello to Howard P. again. Iä! Iä! Big mistake. I forgot he has just one plot: someone (usually a middle-aged professor at witch-haunted Arkham's Miskatonic [...]

    9. i was far, far too hard on old howard philips that last time around. these stories are, with the exception of one or two of the shorter ones (which were just hilariously corny), marvelously creepy and moody and i totally understand now why he's considered the father of modern horror, or whatever. well, him and poe, anyway. the old-fashioned-ness of his language adds to the atmosphere of utter madness and terror, and i began to appreciate for the first time that the vast reaches of outer space ca [...]

    10. Czailiście się na jakąś książkę bardzo długo, a potem byliście źli, że dopiero teraz się za nią wzięliście? Ja teraz mam dokładnie takie myśli. Dlaczego tak długo zwlekałam? Z drugiej strony chciałabym wymazać sobie pamięć i zacząć od nowa. To jest po prostu perfekcyjne.Nawet nie jestem w stanie wybrać kilku najlepszych opowiadań. No bo co, wszystkie tytuły mam wypisać?Must read dla wszystkich fanów grozy i horroru.Lovecraft jest oficjalnie autorem mojego życia. Ż [...]

    11. It's been years since I'd taken a look at Lovecraft, and in that time I'd become a rather large fan of Michael Moorcock -- far from a fan of Lovecraft. I wasn't sure if his (and others) opinion would color my enjoyment of this book, but I have to say, despite the similarity in subject matter these stories all have, some of these are just as thrilling as I remember, and Lovecraft's prose style isn't nearly as turgid as I'd remembered. They're formulaic, and the racism and xenophobia is hard to sw [...]

    12. This is a collection of short stories written by H.P. Lovecraft. Some of these stories belong to one world. These stories are mostly supernatural with a few science fiction. They are all told in first person and it is recounting of a previous experience.I picked this up because I read one of the short stories takes place where my mother grew up. It was a complete surprise to discover that Lovecraft's work is the basis for so many of today's entertainment like television shows, music, and video g [...]

    13. 4/5Como es habitual en Howard Phillips Lovecraft, nos encontraremos con una obra enfocada en el suspenso, misterio y la fantasía. ¿Quién o qué es la criatura que aterroriza a la población Dunwich ?Wilbur Whateley, con características corporales muy extrañas e hijo de una mujer desfigurada crea un misterio en la comunidad sobre su verdadera personalidad. Su abuelo, el Viejo Whateley, exteriorizó en muchas ocasiones que el pequeño Wilbur nombraría a su padre desde la cumbre de Sentinel H [...]

    14. The thing that struck me first, and hardest, about Lovecraft was his endings. You know, instinctively, what is going to happen, but when it does - or more so, they way he writes it - you can't help but get goosebumps and feel chilled. Take, for example, the first story I ever read by Lovecraft, "The Whisperer in Darkness".Once Akeley sends his letter to Wilmarth that all is well, his ravings being a misunderstanding, you know something is up. Something doesn't feel right. How can someone, who wa [...]

    15. I first came upon the works of H.P. Lovecraft just before my teenage years. In many ways, to my young brain, these stories seemed not just dangerous but pornographic. In re-reading them now I'm not exactly sure I can explain it, because from today's more mature and jaded perspective they often seem naive and quaint if not actually clichéd. But when this were first published they very unsettling, if fact they were so convincing in just how unsettling they were that many people convinced themselv [...]

    16. This is my second installment of re-reading the essential H.P. Lovecraft canon. The volume contains 16 of my favorite stories including Pickman's Model, Rats in the Walls, the Dunwich Horror, and the Shadow Over Innsmouth. As always, Lovecraft's language is lyrical and dense - a wonderful way to be absorbed for a rainy afternoon or stormy night. What struck me most in re-reading this volume is the way that Arkham, Innsmouth, and environs are finally fleshing out - each story providing a single g [...]

    17. For me, this is the ultimate measure of quality in horror writing. No one before or since has matched the atmospherics that Lovecraft employs in this collection of his short stories. Whereas more recent decades seem to confuse horror with violence and gore, Lovecraft had the good sense to acknowledge that the unknown is infinitely more terrifying than the known. If your only familiarity with the genre is Stephen King and similar writers, you have no idea what Lovecraft is like. Bring your dictio [...]

    18. Some of Lovecraftt's best stuff is in this volume Myabe I shouldn't give him 5 stars but I love his stories. If you have a bit to spend the simplest way to get a farily coplete selection of his works, is to stick with the Arkham House copies. There are a gazilion different collection you can spend your money on but if you get the Arkham, you shouldn't repeat material. I make no claim this is great literature, but at the same time I tend to think he is under rated.Enjoy!

    19. I can certainly see why H P Lovecraft has a cult following as his style of writing is certainly distinctive as well as being engaging from the start. This selection of short stories was fun to read, especially as I don’t often read horror these days, but I was a little bored by the repetitive nature of the stories which is why this only got a 3 star rating. He was clearly a man obsessed with dark occult books such as The Necronomicon.

    20. I read the story, not this whole collection. It was dry and so masculine (what is that with Poe and Lovecraft ?) that I can't say I was on the edge of my seat. But it's influence on so much horror and it's metaphysical weirdness are massive. Powerful, if boring in parts. The 1970 AIP movie sure is different. There's no Sandra Dee character in the story

    21. Även om han blir lite väl mångordig och detaljerad emellanåt byggs stämningen upp gradvis för att sedan sluta med en kuslig twist.

    22. Jak zwykle słów kilka na temat książki znajdziecie na moim blogu. Serdecznie zapraszam :)magicznyswiatksiazki/zgroza

    23. I guess I hadn't reviewed this volume, but it's a fine collection of some of H.P.'s best. Still a joy to revisit

    24. One of my favorite books by Lovecraft. I've read and re-read this book because I like it so much, specially The Dunwich Horror.
