All right, with this one under my belt, I think I can safely say that I’ve read everything Lovecraft has ever written in his life. I will then skip introducing the author––who doesn’t need any introduction, anyway––and go through a rundown of some of my most beloved horror stories of his, which you Leggi tutto
Najpre, želim da pohvalim izdavačku kuću Orfelin na divnoj knjizi, predivnim ilustracijama, kvalitetu papira i same knjige kao i za izgled korica. Ovo je knjiga koji bi svaki ljubitelj horora trebalo da ima u svojoj kolekciji, iako jeste malo skuplja od ostalih ali isto tako ovde se pokazuje kako ce Leggi tutto

Lovecraft has to be broken down into his constituent parts in order to be comprehensible. 1. Man 2. Mythographer 3. Writer The man, by far, is easily the most reprehensible and unforgivable.

I suppose the two best words to describe my feelings on the work of the 20th century's most prolific horror writer are "mostly disappointing". THE GOOD I wasn't disappointed with everything. A bunch of stories stood out for me as being genuine, page-turning excitement: The Colour Out of Space, The Dun Leggi tutto
“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear.” -H.P. Lovecraft This collection of weird fiction short stories and novellas is slightly inconsistent in terms of quality, but it contains so many genuinely original and thoroughly harrowing, sinister tales that, on the whole, I found it a highl Leggi tutto
“We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.” Excellent collection of Lovecraft's stories, you've got most of his best ones in this collection; but it's such a big and somewhat cumbersome book.

It seriously took a publisher how much of a century to title a collection of Lovecraft's stories "Necronomicon"? Like seventy years? Did it really just not occur to anyone?

New life goal: to write a cult book about another book that doesn't exist.
You know I picked this up because I'd been told it gathered the Cthulhu mythos stories. Actually we start off with some of his early horror work (Cool Air, The rats in the Walls, etc.). Later on we do get into the Cthulhu stories. These are (as always with Lovecraft) reliably horrific and very well
