The Life And Work Of Horror Writer H.P. Lovecraft

H.P. Lovecraft is now recognized as perhaps the most influential horror writer of the twentieth century.  Yet this recognition was a long time in coming.  During his life he labored away in near complete obscurity, his work appearing only in obscure pulp horror magazines, to be consumed by only the most ardent fans of the genre.  His death at the age of 46 was nearly unnoticed; but his devoted fans kept alive the spirit of his works, and he would eventually be recognized as a titan of horror.

One thought on “The Life And Work Of Horror Writer H.P. Lovecraft

  1. Hello,

    First of all, great article, I’m glad to find a review of Lovecraft’s works that doesn’t feel the need to remind me of his political beliefs that are deemed “racist” in today’s culture(as if that has any bearing to his stories).

    I was wondering if the printed version of his stories, like for example the Necronomicon, is by any chance an abridged version? Or more specifically, if they censored some of the more racial words that were found in Lovecraft’s works. I’m not necessarily fond of racial words, but I don’t like it when someone feels the need to edit them out from the original creations in the name of political correctness, which I despise with a passion.

    I know it is a silly question but I can’t seem to find any answer to this on the internet and was hoping you could give a clear answer.
