    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. Wilbur Whateley is the offspring of an extreme interracial relationship. His mother is a FUGLY, deformed, inbred albino. She’s the more attractive set of chromosomes because "papa" is reeeeeeeeeeally FUBAR and quite a bit “elder.” This unnatural genetic bouillabaisse helps Wilbur sprout into an impressive 15 year old that stands over 8 feet tall, carries a full beard and has a face that can cure constipation.Yes….Wilbur is awesome.The Dunwich Horror is among my favorite Lovecraft stories [...]


    2. Jerry, George, Elaine and Cthulhu are sitting in Jerry’s New York apartment discussing H.P. Lovecraft’s 1928 novella The Dunwich Horror.[Kramer bursts through the door] Kramer: Is Cthulhu still here, oh there you are. Wow, great honor your greatness.Cthulhu: Kramer! Good to see you my friend, come on in, we’re just talking some Dunwich Horror.Kramer: Yeah, I read it, and I’M LOVIN’ IT JERRY!Jerry: One of H.P.’s best, no doubt.George: What do you think of the Arkham references, Jerry?

    3. After you're finished with The Call of Cthulhu and you feel as if you still have your senses about you (You think you do, but you don't. Good try though!), give The Dunwich Horror and Other Stories a go. Herein you'll find more possessed people and plenty others driven insane, as per usual.If nothing else, this is a wonderful foundational work on the Lovecraftian mythos that details in creepy color Cthulhu and that devilish book of magic, The Necronomicon. The language evoked by Lovecraft is mor [...]


    4. I'm going to have to think up a name for a shelf on GoodReads for these types of books. They're not quite fantasy or sci-fi, not quite gothic and not quite wholly esoteric. Maybe just "Lovecraftian" will have to doMuch like his other works, this was sublimely written. The story seemed much more fleshed out and seemed to have a linear purpose beyond just being a short story about esoteric dealings and horrific things from the blackness etcIf I weren't so lazy I'd look up the chronology of this st [...]


    5. gutenberg/ebooks/50133Opening: When a traveler in north central Massachusetts takes the wrong fork at the junction of the Aylesbury pike just beyond Dean's Corners he comes upon a lonely and curious country. The ground gets higher, and the brier-bordered stone walls press closer and closer against the ruts of the dusty, curving road. The trees of the frequent forest belts seem too large, and the wild weeds, brambles, and grasses attain a luxuriance not often found in settled regions. At the same [...]


    6. 6 OCT 2015 - Today was a very slow day at work. It happens sometimes. We are not permtted to read real books at our desks; so, I could not read the Narrow Road. Instead, we are permitted mobile devices. I downloaded The Dunwich Horror from Project Gutenberg and spent the day being scared out of my mind. Holy Mud! This is a spooky read. Here is your link to being frightened: gutenberg/ebooks/50133Do NOT read before bedtime. You have been warned. Dagny and I shared our Lovecraft reading experience [...]


    7. This is a cheat review, I didn't actually read this book. I read the story The Dunwich Horror and maybe this edition has only that story in it, or maybe it has some other ones included as well. I don't know. And this unknowing kind of disturbs me, and I think maybe I shouldn't review this as a book, but just tack it on to my review of The Weird. It almost fills with the horror that the citizens of Dunwich feel when they take turns looking up on the hill towards the end of this story. Yeah, it's [...]


    8. When a traveller in north central Massachusetts takes the wrong fork at the junction of the Aylesbury pike just beyond Dean’s Corners he comes upon a lonely and curious country.The Dunwich Horror is set in the isolated and derelict village of Dunwich, and is the story of an isolated and derelict family - the Whateleys. The story is centered around the youngest Whateley, Wilbur, who is a most unusual person - son of an albino mother and an unknown father, he grows up much faster than other chil [...]


    9. Master of horror writes a story of true forces of evil. The story beats a lot of modern writers in prose, characters and plot. I can see why many screenwriters have taken from pages of Lovecraft's characters. It seems that The Dark Tower series by King has a lot of inspiration from these elements in Dunwich Horror and other stories. A dark malevolent force of evil has taken over Dunwich is there hope?You are taken through the accounts and findings of this evil, a very good tale."Young Wilbur‘s [...]


    10. Dunwich claims a story, a “blasphemy” of a story. The Horror, the “blasphemy” came to the town as a boy named Wilbur Whately. At three little Wilbur could read with a profound intelligence, a prodigy, who looked twelve instead of three. The town produces strange phenomena, such as the whippoorwills; they move to a rhythm when people die. The birds sing in glee, and legend says they stop singing if they become discouraged at a person’s death. You see, the birds want to capture and torme [...]


    11. In my quest to discover the works of one of the most influential writers in all of horror, I immerse myself into yet another story by H.P. Lovecraft. This time it is The Dunwich Horror and I find, yet again, its hard to go wrong with Lovecraft.In the backwoods town of Dunwich, Mass Wilbur Whateley is born to his disfigured albino mother Lavinia. The father's identity is unknown but later in the story it is alluded that the father is Yog-Sothoth by Wilbur's half-mad and witchcraft practicing gran [...]


    12. 4.5This is one of my favourite Lovecraft's stories. It is wonderfully written, the imagery is perfect for what it was set out to do and some of the characters are just horrifying enough to keep you on your toes. Dunwich is an isolated little place in New England. It wasn't much better before the events told here either. Wilbur Whately was born in 1913. His mother Lavinia Whateley, a deformed albino woman, spends her days wondering through the countryside. After his birth, his grandfather starts [...]


    13. I started out incredibly skeptical and wary of this collection as I was made aware that Lovecraft is racist and that his prejudicial attitude appears in his writing often. I liked the title story and “The Thing on the Doorstep” quite a bit, but as I continued jumping around the collection, I found the collection too repetitive ultimately. He seems to play with the same themes repeatedly and, forget scaring me, the stories eventually stop becoming even mildly entertaining. I think I’ll pass [...]


    14. 3.75"Pues aun cuando el nepente me ha tranquilizado los nervios, sé que siempre seré un extraño. Un extraño en este siglo entre quienes siguen siendo hombres"H.P.

    15. Estos son mis primeros cuentos de Lovecraft que he leído. Me atraparon desde un inicio, la forma en que describe a los monstruos y lo que viven los personajes es super intrigante. En definitiva hay que leerlos y leer más de este grandioso autor.


    16. En mi afán por revisar la obra completa de H.P. Lovecraft, ahora toca 'El horror de Dunwich', que incluye cuatro narraciones: 'El horror de Dunwich', que da nombre a la antología, 'El modelo de Pickman', 'El susurrador en la oscuridad' y 'El extraño'. En mi opinión, estos cuentos son de lo mejor que escribió el Maestro de Providence. En ellos se conjugan a la perfección los llamados Mitos de Cthulhu y los relatos del ciclo de Nueva Inglaterra, llegando a unas cotas de horror y suspense ext [...]


    17. Me gustó mucho como está contado, el principio y el final especialmente. Podía imaginarme las escenas en mi mente como si fuera una película de terror y eso me re gustó. Lo que resaltaría como negativo es que terminamos sabiendo que es lo que pasa en Dunwich. Hubiera estado bueno que en vez de hablar de criaturas monstruosas, Lovecraft, lo deje en el aire y que cada uno imagine lo que pasó en el pueblo.(view spoiler)[ Lovecraft tiene una fijación con describir a los monstruos, que aparte [...]


    18. Lovecraft does Cold Comfort Farm, or Stella Gibbons on a very bad acid trip. A family of inbreds in the sticks of New England grow something nasty in the woodshed. Flora Post is replaced by one Professor Arkham fresh from the city, going native and saving the day. The Cowkeepers' Weekly Bulletin and Milk Producers' Guide is replaced by the Mad Arab Abdul Alhazred's Necronomicon. Aimless, Feckless, Graceless and Pointless the cows are savaged by a gargantuan oily beast summoned from another dimen [...]


    19. This review is going to be an as-I-read review. Because reasons.(view spoiler)[I'm on the 4th paragraph and I just audibly yelled at the book. You cannot spend 3 paragraphs explaining how menacing the countryside is only to then tell me that it is "more than commonly beautiful". Screw you, Lovecraft, I already hate this story."deeds of almost unnamable violence and perversity" *rolls eyes*"No one, even those who have the facts concerning the recent horror, can say just what is the matter with Du [...]


    20. This, I would say, is one of HPL's top three stories (the other two being The Colour Out of Space and, of course, The Call of Cthulhu).There's some standard HPL problems here. As per usual, all of the action occurs either completely off-stage or, at the very least, from a distance and explained by nonplussed observers. There's not a lot of dialogue here, though, quite frankly, it's more than in most HPL yarns, but it's almost all in an overwhelmingly irritating local patois that it's semi-unread [...]


    21. There are six short stories that comprise this edition of The Dunwich Horror. I’ll try to say a little about each.The Dunwich Horror itself is my first introduction to Lovecraft, being the first in the book. It is presented with a super creepy atmosphere that builds throughout, and even though my edition clocks it in as only 63 pages, that doesn’t lessen the effect. I enjoyed the setting -- and while I’m at it will add that I enjoyed that all these stories took place in a similar sort of l [...]


    22. This past October I read and, in the case of Lovecraft, re-read some classic horror and I have to say of what I read the Lovecraft holds up the best, especially the Dunwich Horror. First published in the 1920's Lovecraft's prose is very much like the neo-gothic style of architecture that was popular in the States during the time. In fact reading Dunwich Horror again reminded me of Pasadena's All Saints Church, itself a neo-gothic creation, and of admiring the intricacies evident in the construct [...]


    23. Amazing! I loved this story so much, it's going to climb up my Lovecraft favourites list, and be placed second only to the Shadow over Innsmouth. Interesting plot, lovely descriptions and atmosphere as usual, non-tiring writing style, and my favourite recipe for horror stories: a small, decaying town filled with secrets, mystery and unspeakable hauntings.But the most important thing for me was. While reading this book, I realized something. With every new Lovecraft story I read, I get a wider, r [...]


    24. This is a classic horror and my expectations were high. The story started of well and gave us a spooky small village setting with the odd family of a Grandfather, Albino mother and inhuman grandson.The build-up was great but then it kind of just fizzled out.After this great build-up I expected something horrifying in the climax but it was SO-SO(view spoiler)[Monster from the other world entered our earth dimension maybe because of the witchcraft performed by the grandfather and inhuman grandson. [...]


    25. La historia me gustó y la forma en la que está escrito no es pesada como en otros cuentos que tuve el placer de leer. Pero las últimas 20 páginas me llevó varios días leerlas y esto alargó lo que llamo "la tortura de Lovecraft", yo quería terminar los cuentos de una vez pero solo se me hacían cada vez más largos u.u Así que no lo pude disfrutar del todo. Es posible que tardara en leerlo no por culpa del libro sino porque estuve cansada, pero la sensación de amargura estuvo presente a [...]


    26. The Dunwich Horror is a tale of black magic and things best left unknown to mankind. It follows the actions of a vile, queer being from its inception and the havoc that follows. In this story, Lovecraft always leaves a hint of information, of foul things waiting around dark corners. The macabre drive to pursue these hints propels the reader through a truly compelling read.


    27. Mi relación con Lovecraft avanza, como Yog-Shothoth, lenta pero imparable. Todavía falta que me haga sentir verdadero terror, pero nos vamos acercando.Como relato, El horror de Dunwich me ha gustado mucho. Los personajes y la narración son notables.


    28. Without any doubt one of Lovecraft's best stories. Ignore all the awful movie versions you have seen based on this story or Yog-Sothoth will eat you (and your house).


    29. I don't get the appeal of this one. To me, any sense of tension was spoiled by the story being too long. Lovecraft could have made it about 1\5 the length that he did to greater effect.
