Discuss everything Lovecraft related here.
Back when last summer was running, I went to an "open" bookshop, on the lakeside. There, they had a copy of At the Mountains of Madness. I had previously heard of Howard Philips Lovecraft, a writer famous for his horror, supernatural stories.
I gave it a shot.
I was blown away. The writing style is unsettling and striking at the same time. The themes are just wonderful and leave you thinking a lot. After that, I bought a little anthology, in which there was The Call of Cthulhu. Another great piece of writing, even with its condition of being way shorter than the former novel. I loved it.
By Christmas 2010 I own the complete Anthology featuring all of his works.
