Howard Phillips Lovecraft is among the greatest American writers of fantasy and the supernatural. Born in 1890, a native of Providence, Rhode Island, Lovecraft was in questionable health throughout childhood which 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.

Lovecraft created an entire mythology of his own, largely centered on the cult of Cthulhu, a creature who hibernates in the ancient underwater city of Ri’yeh, ever ready to awaken and take possession of Earth again, and is so powerful and horrific that direct knowledge of him can render humans insane. Volume 2 of Lovecraft’s work includes the canonical tale of the Cthulhu mythos, The Call Of Cthulhu, and Herbert West: Reanimator, a short story detailing the ever-depraved experiments of Dr. Herbert West on his quest to raise the dead.

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.
