Read Lovecraft as he has never been presented before with this, The Call of Cthulhu: Verse Version.
The twentieth century’s foremost writer of weird fiction, H.P. Lovecraft’s singular vision of an interrelated “Cthulhu mythos” and the bleak cosmos they inhabit, has become part of the public consciousness. The author of countless classic stories and poems, Lovecraft was also the center of a farflung network of friends, proto-science fiction fans, and devotees of weird literature, with whom he corresponded closely, and visited. The preservation of his work and legacy for future generations was the effort of those who remembered him fondly.
Forever regarding himself as a “man out of time”, H.P. Lovecraft died in 1937 at the age of 46, in his beloved Providence, Rhode Island.
