Book Review: Call of Cthulhu by H. P. Lovecraft - Reviewed by WarrenRR (03 Nov 2009)
This first volume of eighteen tales in the S.T. Joshi edited anthology of Lovecraft's fiction is brilliant and may well be the volume to convert new readers to Lovecraft's epic world of elder gods and occult forces. Lovecraft classics like 'The Call of Cthulhu' & 'The Colour Out of Space' are represented here as well as a personal favourite of mine, 'The Shadow Over Innsmouth'. Along with Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) would have to be the greatest practitioner of horror fiction who ever lived. The annotated notes to each story also gives the reader a detailed insight into his life and work. But be warned, once Lovecraft's prose weaves its spell on you, you'll want to read more....thankfully, there are two other volumes available in the Penguin Modern Classics line. Truly essential weird fiction at its best.
Author Biography - H. P. Lovecraft
Born in Providence, Rhode Island in 1890, Lovecraft was self-educated and lived in his birthplace all his life, working as a freelance writer, journalist, and ghostwriter. Using many pen names, he contributed his supernatural/horror and science fiction/fantasy stories to various pulp magazines but his reputation as a writer rests mainly on the 60 or so stories he published in Weird Tales starting in 1923. He died in 1937.
