At The Mountains Of Madness blew me away, I still get giddy thinking about it! His books send me into a deliciously numbing state of terror. Haven't read so much of his work, getting to it when I can, but it always hits the spot.
big fan here, Robert Bloch and Robert e Howard, all writers connected to lovcraft, I love how lovcraft uses, Robert block in the hunter of the dark as Robert Blake, my favorite story is the outsider, I fell in love with his writings ever since.
I am writing this, hoping that someone will read this and think of me, not as a madman, but a person that has fallen in grave danger, I should have listen to the man but the curiosity got the best of me, see I have found and old relic of a pipe in a secluded antiquated colonial store that sells dusty old tomes and curious items, the man told me the item was cursed, but I did not believe in this sort of thing, the pipe it self was a black meerschaum with a relif of a youth with a crown leaf on its head, it was beautiful, it had a grip on my soul, ever since i have smoked it, this thing has been following me, my days have been long and I have not sleep in what seems to be days, I have been dosing my self with a healthy amount of morphine to forget, now i find my self in a abandoned farm, they said a family used to live here and that the well was somohow poisend, there is green liquid everywere on the floor, I hear the foot steps, oh god!! I see its hand, its trying to force its way in!!! those yellow bulging EYES, dear god help me!!! the window, YES!! THE WINDOW!!! I MUST GO TO THE WINDOW!!!
OCTOBER 12TH 2016 a body was found near a farm house, it was of hextor, police confirmed the death as a suicide, he had jumped of the third floor window, they think he was in need of psychiatric treatment, his suicide letter was found, but is was incomprehensible, he died with a curious pipe in his hand.
H aha , that's awesome Hextor!! Yeh, I read a lot of Lovecraft back in high school, along with Poe, Burroughs, and Kafka. Good stuff. Teenage angst and horror tinged with a drop of sexy gloom go together very well.
If you are an eBook reader, Google Play Books has a "Complete" Lovecraft collection for 99 cents.
I put complete in quotes, because I have managed to round up some really rare stuff that is not included, but it has darn nearly everything, and certainly everything he wrote in the Cthulhu mythos.
Title is: H. P. Lovecraft the Ultimate Collection.
