Lovecraft, H. P. (Howard Phillips), 1890-1937
In this short article, the writer briefly shows an overview of H.P. Lovecraft’s life. It talks about his childhood in Rhode Island and his insane upbringing. The article also mentions his editorial work in young adulthood for other writers of the time. The first work Lovecraft managed to publish was his short story “Dagon”, which appeared in the magazine “Weird Tales”. Although he wasn’t overly popular at the time, he gathered a cult following throughout the years comprised of a very dedicated fan-base. Lovecraft created the “Cthulhu Mythos”, a connected world within his literature that used a unique fusion style of horror and science fiction. Two years after his death, a collection of his works was published by two young fans of Lovecraft’s work after establishing a publishing imprint called Arkham House. The collection of short stories the young fans had published was called “The Outsider and Others”.
