Howard Phillips Lovecraft is among the greatest American writers of fantasy and the supernatural. Born in 1890, a native of Providence, Rhode Island, Lovecraft’s questionable health throughout childhood caused his mother to shelter him early in life. His semi-invalidism enabled him to read voraciously, and as a shy, imaginative child, he began to invent what in his adult life would become a macabre, esoteric world of his own. Tall, thin, and pale, but with bright alert eyes, he was given to wandering his native city in the dark hours of the night, and he became a devoted student of its antiquities and myths.

Volume 1 of Lovecraft’s creepy tales comprises The Lurking Fear, a short story of a man’s investigation into a deadly horror surrounding the haunted Martense mansion, and The Thing on the Doorstep, a story of “not quite human” beings and abducted bodies.

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.
