Group Description


This is a discussion list about Howard Phillips Lovecraft (Aug. 20, 1890 - March 15, 1937), American author of fantastic and macabre short novels and stories, and creator of the Cthulhu Mythos. This list will focus on his life and writings, both of fiction and non-fiction, and including his voluminous letter-writing as well. If it's about Lovecraft, it's about here.


"Searchers after horror haunt strange, far places. For them are the catacombs of Ptolemais, and the carven mausolea of the nightmare countries. They climb to the moonlit towers of ruined Rhine castles, and falter down black cobwebbed steps beneath the scattered stones of forgotten cities in Asia. The haunted wood and the desolate mountain are their shrines, and they linger around the sinister monoliths on uninhabited islands. But the true epicure in the terrible, to whom a new thrill of unutterable ghastliness is the chief end and justification of existence, esteems most of all the ancient, lonely farmhouses of backwoods New England; for there the dark elements of strength, solitude, grotesqueness and ignorance combine to form the perfection of the hideous."

~H.P. Lovecraft.





"That is not dead which can eternal lie,

And with strange aeons even death may die."

~Abdul Alhazred ("The Necronomicon")
