Meet the Author

Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937), commonly known as H. P. Lovecraft, was an American author known for his works of horror fiction (many of which have been adapted into movies). Having died in obscure poverty, he achieved posthumous fame for his books and stories. Today, he is best known for his take on The Call of Cthulhu. Because of his influence on contemporary writers and the development of his unique style known as "Lovecraftian," he is often compared to Edgar Allan Poe.

I read this story some years ago, while you might not be scared (considering new standards of what make people get scared) the story is actually great. I enjoyed the read and it allowed my imagination fly. Should you read it? Yes, but I would recommend you to buy an H.P. Lovecraft collection.
