Howard Phillips Lovecraft

(1890-1937)

American Author
one of the 20th-century masters of fantastic and macabre short novels and stories

Born in New England, like Poe, Lovecraft was an acute observer of the scientific and pseudo-scientific developments of his time, utilizing the latest theories and discoveries in his writings. Like Poe, Lovecraft deliberately ignored contemporary styles and subject-matters and created his own world of fantasy.


"Lovecraft's tales root themselves in a mythos of unseen and undimensioned monsters that existed before the advent of man on earth, or else involve fantasy lands that are at once strange and familiar, often having derivative place names, like Sarnath, which is an archeological site in India."

-Philip A. Shreffer, The H.P. Lovecraft Companion
