Meet the Author

H. P. Lovecraft (1890–1937) has been hailed as one of the most important and influential authors of supernatural fiction of the 20th century. A life-long resident of Providence, Rhode Island, Lovecraft's tales are often set in the fear-haunted towns of an imaginary area of Massachusetts or in the cosmic vistas that exist beyond space and time. Since his untimely death, he has been acknowledged as an American master of fantasy fiction, second only to Edgar Allan Poe.
