Hypnos was always my favorite story of his.

Lovecraft seems to be the author preferred by metalheads...

Although the unaccostomed should break into better literature like Jerzy Kosinski.

Huge fan of Lovecraft, got his full bibliography (3 huuuuuge +1000 pages in french, with lots of his early early works, letters, peoms and so). Definitively my favourite horror/sci-fi/whatever fiction writer with the belgian master Jean ray (that I urge every HPL fan to discover and read, as Ray was to Europe what HPL was to the USA)

If anyone is looking for the definitive biography of Lovecraft in the English language, then they should acquire S.T. Joshi's "H.P. Lovecraft: A Life".

I'm currently exploring Lovecraft stories. I've already read dozens of them and still reading.
So far, so best: Dreams in the Witch-House and Shadow over Innsmouth, and... everything is great!

Check out Lovercraft Studies as well. It's an excellent publication devoted to Lovecraft scholarship.

Post Re: Lovecraft

This is a fairly interesting commentary on Lovecraft's style by Michel Houllebecq, a French novelist known for his nihilistic / cynical / hopeless style. Although there's a lot to be said on cynicism as a mode of reasoning (in particular, ever since I've gotten into Sloterdijk), it's worth a shot:

I was walking to the bus stop one morning few weeks ago, after reading that story. It was dark and felt some unease come over me.

Post Re: Lovecraft

Might not have had the best technique and style, but it's definitely my favourite writer as far as it goes for the part where imagination kicks in.
After all, it's because of him I've been dragging Curwen as a nickname since I was fourteen.

Post Re: Lovecraft

I'm not sure which story is my favorite but I always was intrigued by "Quest Of Iranon" and that because it was so different from the rest of his published work that I could find and yes I forgot the first Lovecraft story I had the chance to read "The Outsider"

A nice documentary on the life of Lovecraft and the birth and influence of the Cthulu Mythos


http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1261900/


A new film based on Whisperer In The Dark is going to be released soon and even more important the film adaption of the comic mini series Mnemovore (the most faithful interpretation of Lovecraft's work)

I was heavily into Lovecraft during my school days. I even wrote a scientific work researching his stories.
