Short biography
Information from the German Common Knowledge. Edit to localize it to your language.
Lovecraft wurde erst nach seinem Tode über den Kreis der Magazinleser hinaus bekannt, für die er seine unheimlich-phantastischen Geschichten um den Cthulhu-Mythos geschrieben hatte. Heute gehört er zu den unbestrittenen Meistern der amerikanischen Horrorgeschichte - von den Kritikern an die Seite von Edgar Allan Poe und Ambrose Bierce gestellt.
Lovecraft lebte sehr zurückgezogen und menschenscheu. Was ihm an sozialen Kontakten in der unmittelbaren Umgebung fehlte, ersetzte er sich durch eine riesige Zahl von Brieffreundschaften. Er schrieb zeitweise mehr als 20 Briefe pro Tag. Diese Korrespondenz fand fas ausschließlich mit anderen Amateurschriftstellern und Magazinautoren statt. So hinterließ Lovecraft eine Unzahl von Briefen und Manuskripten, in denen sich später auch noch einige fast vollendete Erzählungen fanden. Sie wurden von Lovecrafts Freund und posthumen Verleger August Derleth zu Ende geschrieben (aus: Das Grauen vor der Tür).
