H.P. Lovecraft (1890 - 1937) was an American horror fiction writer. Though he died in poverty and was only published in pulp magazines before his death, he is now regarded as one of the most significant 20th-century authors in the genre. Lovecraft was a prodigy, reciting poetry at the age of three, and writing complete poems by six. His grandfather encouraged his interest in the unusual by telling him his own original tales of gothic horror. Lovecraft’s most popular book is, perhaps, At the Mountains of Madness. He also wrote The Call of Cthulhu, along with many short stories and literary correspondences. In this rare recording, he is interviewed as part of a WPA project during the New Deal.

    " This is quite a find -- something that, to my knowledge, even many Lovecraft scholars have not exhumed or commented on (to the extent they even knew of its existence). If I may say so, Lovecraft would not have been the best narrator of his stories, his voice being a bit too high in the register. Nevertheless, it's fascinating to hear the man's voice, and to listen to him opine on some fundamental subjects. My one reservation is the price --- $12.95, though hardly exorbitant for a novel or anthology, is rather excessive for a 4-minute snippet. Clearly the piece targets the true Lovecraft enthusiast and not the mere dilettante. Caveat emptor! "

About the Author

H. P. Lovecraft (1890–1937) was an American author who achieved posthumous fame through his influential works of horror fiction. Virtually unknown and only published in pulp magazines before he died in poverty, he is now regarded as one of the most significant twentieth-century authors in his genre. He was born in Providence, Rhode Island, where he lived most of his life. His relatively small corpus of work consists of three short novels and about sixty short stories.
