Meet the Author

Howard Phillips Lovecraft (August 20, 1890 – March 15, 1937) — known as H. P. Lovecraft — was an American author of horror, fantasy and science fiction, especially the subgenre known as weird fiction.

Lovecraft's guiding aesthetic and philosophical principle was what he termed "cosmicism" or "cosmic horror", the idea that life is incomprehensible to human minds and that the universe is fundamentally inimical to the interests of humankind. As such, his stories express a profound indifference to human beliefs and affairs. Lovecraft is best known for his Cthulhu Mythos story cycle and the Necronomicon, a fictional grimoire of magical rites and forbidden lore.

Although Lovecraft's readership was limited during his lifetime, his reputation has grown over the decades, and he is now regarded as one of the most influential horror writers of the 20th century. According to Joyce Carol Oates, Lovecraft—as with Edgar Allan Poe in the 19th century—has exerted "an incalculable influence on succeeding generations of writers of horror fiction". Stephen King called Lovecraft "the twentieth century's greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale." King has even made it clear in his semi-autobiographical non-fiction book Danse Macabre that Lovecraft was responsible for King's own fascination with horror and the macabre, and was the single largest figure to influence his fiction writing. His stories have also been adapted into plays, films and games.

In my opinion I thought this book was going to bore me out of my mind but as it turns out it was actually a very interesting book. Why well simply because it had to deal with persons feeling lower than somebody else, feeling betrayed or back stabbed, etc. Basically his book was really interesting to me because I could compare my life experiences to things that have happened to me in my personal experiences. For example, when piggy felt down about himself because ralph got pick leader instead of him he felt low about himself and somewhat betrayed I have felt like that plenty of times in my life but turns out I was over reacting about the whole thing. The other reason why I like Lord of the Flies was because it dramatizes the conflict between the civilizing instinct and the barbarizing instinct that exist in all human beings. The artistic choices Golding makes in the novel are designed to emphasize the struggle between the ordering elements of society, which include morality, law, and culture, and the chaotic elements of humanity's savage animal instincts, which include anarchy, bloodlust, the desire for power, amorality, selfishness, and violence. Over the course of the novel, Golding portrays the rise and swift fall of an isolated, makeshift civilization, which is torn to pieces by the savage instincts of those who compose it. The second reason why I like this book is because its real life involving with people that are going through the same thing's as what's going on in the story. Lastly,this book had a very wierd ending because after them chasing ralph the naval officer told them to regain composure so I wondered what really happened after the naval officer found out what the boys were up to. In my view this book was very good from beggining to end and these are the reasons why I liked this book and I highly recommend it for people that want to read a very thrilling novel because it caught my attention in a flash.

I was a bit hesitant to purchase an Ebook with this many books with one. I have purchased some in the past that were very time consuming to navigate, not this one. Every link works flawlessly and very quick as well. Not sure whats different between these and my other best of collections but this book is the cats meow. If Lovecrafts writtings are your cup of tea than you cant beat this collection. Includes all of his greatest books and many i have never heard of. Good formatting and navigation. Highly recomended!
