About the Author
H. P. Lovecraft (1890—1937) lived his life in the moody New England that was the setting for his tales. His writing appeared in some of his eras most famous pulp magazines, but as no book of his work was published in his lifetime, Lovecraft died in relative poverty and obscurity. Since his death he has been recognized as one of the most influential cult horror writers of the twentieth century. His influence on American horror can be detected in the work of Stephen King, Anne Rice, Clive Barker, and many others.
