    About "H.P. Lovecraft"

      • H.P. Lovecraft

        Howard Phillips Lovecraft, of Providence, Rhode Island, was an American author of horror, fantasy and science fiction.Lovecraft s major inspiration and invention was cosmic horror life is incomprehensible to human minds and the universe is fundamentally alien Those who genuinely reason, like his protagonists, gamble with sanity Lovecraft has developed a cult following for his Cthulhu Mythos, a series of loosely interconnected fictions featuring a pantheon of human nullifying entities, as well as the Necronomicon, a fictional grimoire of magical rites and forbidden lore His works were deeply pessimistic and cynical, challenging the values of the Enlightenment, Romanticism and Christianity Lovecraft s protagonists usually achieve the mirror opposite of traditional gnosis and mysticism by momentarily glimpsing the horror of ultimate reality.Although Lovecraft s readership was limited during his life, his reputation has grown over the decades He is now commonly regarded as one of the most influential horror writers of the 20th Century, exerting widespread and indirect influence, and frequently compared to Edgar Allan Poe.


    1. This here, folks, is the most impressive image of Cthulhu that I’ve come across: He just looks so damn regal, this eldritch, malevolent entity that appears part octopus kraken, part dragon, part human caricature…the so called "mountain who walks." Yes, I admit that I’m a Lovecraft/Cthulhu mythos junkie. I can’t help it. I think his stories are just amazing. Depending on which HPL story I’ve most recently consumed, I vacillate regarding what is my absolute favorite HPL tale, The Call of [...]

    2. Perhaps no story more defines H.P. Lovecraft’s eldritch hold on speculative fiction than The Call of Cthulhu.Pronounced: Cthulhu.First published in 1928, in Weird Tales magazine, this launched what is now known as the Cthulhu Mythos. It was here, as much as his earlier unspeakable horrors like Dagon and The Tomb and The Nameless City, that formed what is today known as Lovecraftian; but it was great Cthulhu that gave this sub-genre it’s definition and a face from which to leer down upon poor [...]

    3. Lovecraft does not waste a single word. Every expression, every phrase, is masterfully selected to evoke a sense of the macabre. Like a masterful surgeon, Lovecraft’s meticulous prose is methodical and scrupulous. Such expertise is carried across the body of his writing, thoughThe Call of Cthulhu is undoubtedly the best example. This story captures so much of Lovecraft’s twisted imagination; it is the pinnacle of his writing, the best of his form. The brilliance of it resides in the way it c [...]

    4. A BR with a faithful member of Cthulhu Cult, Craig.Quite a nice ride to sunset with Cthulhu. I liked the spooky atmosphere, the info about the Cthulhu Cult and Old Ones,and the tickles that it gave to unbelievers! :) It would have been really cool to get more limbs flying from the main Thing, but the ending was quite nice :)

    5. از آن نیروها و موجودات عظیم، ممکن است هنوز بازمانده ای باشد بازمانده ای از گذشته های بسیار دور، زمانی که آگاهی تازه پدید آمده بود، در اشکال و گونه هایی که مدت ها پیش از ظهور انسان فعلی از بین رفته اند. اشکال و گونه هایی که تنها اشعار و افسانه ها خاطراتی گذرا از آن ها را ثبت کرده ا [...]

    6. What better time to read The Call of Cthulhu than on Halloween?! Probably should've read this one by now, but I've been holding off for a while, waiting for that special occasion.I do that with some books, usually classics. There's a Steinbeck or two I'm keeping in my proverbial back pocket for when I'm in the right mood or need to get out of a reading funk.The Call of Cthulhu is pure horror. It's terrifying. If I'd been wearing boots, I'd be quaking in them. Reading this reminded me of reading [...]

    7. As a Lovecraft fan, I can easily demonstrate why this story is significant, but explaining exactly why it is so terrifying is a much more difficult thing to do.So, easy things first. The Call of Cthulhu is significant—at least to Lovecraft fans—because it is: 1) the first story in which we encounter Cthulhu himself, 2) the story which includes the first explicit rationale for the Cthulhu mythos 3) the only H.P. Lovecraft story in which a human actually sees a god, and 4) it is the first prod [...]

    8. What’s great about a Lovecraftian horror story, besides the fact that his writing is eerily similar to that of Jason Morais, is that it can afford such a welcome reprieve from a weekend otherwise consumed by madness and violence, the kind of violence that disturbs the soul to its core.“The Call of Cthulhu” is the story of a man who uncovers evidence of otherworldly beings residing in a state of hibernation deep beneath the surface of the Earth’s oceans. Though the image of Cthulhu¹ is b [...]

    9. The Call of Cthulhu is, to all appearances, a rather short and negligible story (little more than 30 pages long). And yet, it’s undoubtedly one of the most iconic novellas by H.P. Lovecraft, and one of his significant early achievements (with, perhaps, The Rats in the Walls). A novella which has spurred the imagination of countless fans, artists, writers, game designers and triggered many imitations.In this story, we find the first mentions (to my knowledge) of nightmarish cyclopean corpse-cit [...]

    11. They had come from the stars, and had brought Their images with Them. The Call of Cthulhu is truly a horror story without the need of any graphic violence. Just the idea of the cult of Cthulhu (how it came to be and what its purpose is) gives me shivers down my spine.This is my first experience with H.P. Lovecraft. But it will not be my last because I like his style very much.

    12. A nice change from reading the story. The narrative choice for this tale was well done with a nice twist at the end. I've listened to this twice in one day!

    13. Very creepy and atmospheric, in an old-fashioned way. Not really my thing, but it kept my interest well enough. 3 1/2 stars.Disclaimer: I'm not into the horror genre and I've never been a Lovecraft fan, although I did read The Dunwich Horror once upon a time. But I was reading and trying to understand Neil Gaiman's A Study in Emerald yesterday, and in the course of researching the Cthulhu aspects of that story I found this one online at ensource/wiki/The_Cal. It's worth reading if you like this [...]

    14. I'm beginning to think this is one of those books I'll never write a review of; one of the books simply for me to enjoy.***I may be able to write a good review of this sometime. This time I'll just say I need more stars. ***Just as great as the first time I read it. That didn't change.

    15. In high school, my best friend was utterly obsessed with Lovecraft, which meant I was constantly force-fed numerous short stories of his which I never really enjoyed or remembered fondly. After a decade or so I decided to go back and revisit Lovecraft, and I gotta admit I was pleasantly surprised. The Horror he depicts is a metaphysical horror that very few writers have been able to replicate, but his prose, though often overstimulating, is engrossing and poetic. Xenophobia aside, I enjoyed this [...]

    16. Lectura del mes del #Clubdelectura.«Lo que ha emergido puede hundirse y lo que se ha hundido puede emerger otra vez. La mayor de las blasfemias espera y sueña en las profundidades, y la decadencia circula entre las débiles ciudades de los hombres». Buen cuento, ideal para introducirse en el terror cósmico de Lovecraft y el concepto de los dioses primigenios.

    17. Lovecraft's writing style is just not my cuppa and that's why I thought this was only OK. Even though this was a short story it felt like it took me forever to get through. I'm all for purple prose but Lovecraft describes things in 2 pages when he really only needed 2 sentences. Verbose is putting it mildly.I always wanted to read this so that I would better understand what people were talking about when they mention Cthulhu. Now I do. Cthulhu is an interesting concept and I wanted to know more [...]

    18. For those who enjoy rifling through old research notes, piecing together missing data, making sense of the big picture, and then being left hanging at the end.I'm kidding, of course. The best part of any horror story is that it leaves you hanging. No explanation, no resolution, no sense of closure.This story is told in a series of personal accounts in which the narrator pieces together what he thinks was the cause of his granduncle's mysterious sudden death, speculating that the late uncle's mys [...]

    19. This was an audio re-read of The Call of Cthulhu for me. This audio came through the AudioBlast newsletter and I requested it right away.I enjoyed listening to this performance. It had a full dramatization going on with sounds effects, screams and whatnot in the background. However, at times the main narrator went a little flat for me.Overall, I enjoyed this performance and would recommend it to fans of cosmic horror and Lovecraft. *Thanks to Audioblast for the opportunity to listen to this stor [...]

    20. If you like to read boring stories with no characterization, no dialogue, lazy descriptions, and rampant racism, this is for you. As for me, one star is a bit too generous.

    21. One can easily see why "Lovecraftian" is a thing from this, and why only people who are true devotees can really write anything in-depth about his stuff.His writing style is utterly sublime. I got vagaries of Fitzgerald-in terms of writing style and their ability to put every single word to good use, with no spare sentences put adrift on the page-but unlike F. Scott, the story was as riveting as the prose. You can feel the tension seeping from the page as you read on.It's hard to say much else w [...]

    22. «Si el cielo decidiese algún día acordarme un insigne favor, borraría totalmente de mi memoria el descubrimiento que hice.»Cthulhu me tenía intrigada hace años, y tengo que decir que no me decepcionó ni un poquito. Durante años también pronuncié mal el nombre del monstruo (llegué hasta a decirle 'Chuchu' en broma) pero según parece se pronuncia 'Ctulu' o incluso 'Tulu'. Igual me gusta ese nombre de escritura más complicada, de algún modo lo vuelve más atemorizante y menos terríc [...]

    23. Chicken mole tamales wrapped in corn husks, like H.P. Lovecraft's Call of Cthulhu, burst with flavor. You experience the authenticity and the complex and dark, rich tastes in every bite you take. Every bite, or rather Lovecraft's narrative, takes you back to ancient rites alien to the ways of the modern world (now read as 2015). Makes me wonder, just for an instant, what a really good homemade tamale has in common with the modern world. Tamales are anachronistic, aren't they? Sort of like the Ct [...]

    24. Es una locura, Lovecraft es un enfermo. Transmite perfectamente las sensaciones mas oscuras. Tuve que googlear muchas palabras. No suelo leer libros de terror pero se que esto es un estilo particular, alejado quizás del terror clásico. Es cortito y al pié, fluido, se termina en un rato. Lo leí arriba de un colectivo y fue increíble.

    25. I'm still not entirely sure that I understand the hype, but it was an interesting story nonetheless, and Lovecraft, pretentious has he is, has a talent for crafting horror with deep psychological undertones.

    26. We need to start this off with Metallica's The Call of Ktulu, because of the obvious. A few months back, I saw this interview of Neil Gaiman, where he raved on and on about H.P. Lovecraft. Now, I'd heard of the latter, but I hadn't really read any book of his, and so on hearing this, I did some more research into said author, and discovered that his books delved into morbid, macabre themes; themes I'm rather fond of, to be honest. A few weeks after that, I read Fabian's review of A Study in Emer [...]

    27. Casi me había olvidado de lo perturbador que podía llegar a ser Lovecraft y estoy segura de que todavía me falta llegar a ese límite.La llamada de Cthulhutal vez no me haya sorprendido del todo, pero me encantó y creo que tiene su fama de clásico del horror bien ganada. Es curioso (¿o alarmante?) lo vívido que parece algo irreal cuando está narrado de una forma tan minuciosa y directa al mismo tiempo.El protagonista del cuento es interesantísimo porque oscila entre ser un investigador [...]

    28. First rule of Cthulhu: No one knows about Cthulhu.Except, of course, all fans of SF/F should read the original Cthulu short story that is still inspiring storytellers today.________________"Johansen and his men were awed by the cosmic majesty of this dripping Babylon of elder daemons, and must have guessed without guidance that it was nothing of this or of any sane planet.""The Thing cannot be described - there is no language for such abysms of shrieking and immemorial lunacy, such eldritch cont [...]

    29. Sigurno je jedna od najpoznatijih Lovecraftovih priča.Maštovita , inspirsana i jako dobra priča priča i mislim da je ovo odličan uvod da se krene sa njegovom literaturom. Nažalost (ali stvarno nažalost , jer je priča svarno dobra )sam morao oduzeti jedan bod jer sam se u drugom dijelu jednostavno više puta izgubio i nisam razumio kako i šta. Uglavnom je obavezna preporuka za ljubitelje horor literature !I ova slika je stvarno odlična !

    30. I was not impressed. For all the talk this particular book has gotten in my circles, it really wasn't very interesting a read. The description was interesting but I didn't find the book as anything monumental save for it being one of the first of its kind. The book was a quick read and allowed a glimpse into the world Lovecraft was trying to build, but taken on its own, it left me curious why it was so impressive to most of the genre. Perhaps taken with the other studies in the mythos I would be [...]
