About the Author

Howard Phillips Lovecraft, 1890 - 1937 H. P. Lovecraft was born on August 20, 1890 in Providence, Rhode Island. His mother was Sarah Susan Phillips Lovecraft and his father was Winfield Scott Lovecraft, a traveling salesman for Gorham & Co. Silversmtihs. Lovecraft was reciting poetry at the age of show more two and when he was three years old, his father suffered a mental breakdown and was admitted to Butler Hospital. He spent five years there before dying on July 19, 1898 of paresis, a form of neurosyphillis. During those five years, Lovecraft was told that his father was paralyzed and in a coma, which was not the case. His mother, two aunts and grandfather were now bringing up Lovecraft. He suffered from frequent illnesses as a boy, many of which were psychological. He began writing between the ages of six and seven and, at about the age of eight, he discovered science. He began to produce the hectographed journals, "The Scientific Gazette" (1899-1907) and "The Rhode Island Journal of Astronomy" (1903-07). His first appearance in print happened, in 1906, when he wrote a letter on an astronomical matter to The Providence Sunday Journal. A short time later, he began writing a monthly astronomy column for The Pawtuxet Valley Gleaner - a rural paper. He also wrote columns for The Providence Tribune (1906-08), The Providence Evening News (1914-18), The Asheville (N.C.) Gazette-News (1915). In 1904, his grandfather died and the family suffered severe financial difficulties, which forced him and his mother to move out of their Victorian home. Devastated by this, he apparently contemplated suicide. In 1908, before graduating from high school, he suffered a nervous breakdown. He didn't receive a diploma and failed to get into Brown University, both of which caused him great shame. Lovecraft was not heard from for five years, re-emerging because of a letter he wrote in protest to Fred Jackson's love story in The Argosy. His letter was published in 1913 and caused great controversy, which was noted by Edward F. Daas, President of the United Amateur Press Association (UAPA). Daas invited Lovecraft to join the UAPA, which he did in early 1914. He eventually became President and Official Editor of the UAPA and served briefly as President of the rival National Amateur Press Association (NAPA). He published thirteen issues of his own paper, The Conservative (1915-23) and contributed poetry and essays to other journals. He also wrote some fiction which titles include "The Beast in the Cave" (1905), "The Alchemist" (1908), "The Tomb" and "Dagon" (1917). In 1919, Lovecraft's mother was deteriorating, mentally and physically, and was admitted to Butler Hospital. On May 24, 1921, his mother died from a gall bladder operation. While attending an amateur journalism convention in Boston, Lovecraft met his future wife Sonia Haft Greene, a Russian Jew. They were married on March 3, 1924 and Lovecraft moved to her apartment in Brooklyn. Sonia had a shop on Fifth Avenue that went bankrupt. In 1925, Sonia went to Cleveland for a job and Lovecraft moved to a smaller apartment in the Red Hook district of Brooklyn. In 1926, he decided to move back to Providence. Lovecraft had his aunts bar his wife, Sonia, from going to Providence to start a business because he couldn't have the stigma of a tradeswoman wife. They were divorced in 1929. After his return to Providence, he wrote his greatest fiction, which included the titles "The Call of Cthulhu" (1926), "At the Mountains of Madness" (1931), and "The Shadow Out of Time" (1934-35). In 1932, his aunt, Mrs. Clark, died; and he moved in with his other aunt, Mrs. Gamwell, in 1933. Suffering from cancer of the intestine, Lovecraft was admitted to Jane Brown Memorial Hospital and on March 15, 1937 he died. (Bowker Author Biography) show less

Reviews

As an addition to the sci fi genre, LOA produced a little known author H. P. Lovecraft as a successor to Poe (though Lovecraft is no successor & no comparison to Poe either). 22 tales are listed here which ranged from the bizarre to sheer terror including E. Ts, & whatever else sci fi readers can get a hold of. His work is almost far too gratuitous leaving much to be desired but I will let the reader decide that.

Reminiscent of a Jules Verne story, this is the story of an expedition to the Antarctic in 1930. With references to the Line-crossing ceremony, Nicholas Roerich's art, the Erebrus (active) volcano, Breeches bouy, Lord Dunsany.
Written at the time when people rumoured about the "ghost mountains of Antarctica" that were still yet to be discovered, Lovecraft describes the temperatures, gales, geology, Mesozoic, Placodermi, fossils, and Einstein. Clark Ashton Smith is mentioned as an artist whose paintings are based on the Necronomicon; and there are references to the mirages described and drawn by Scoresby on his Arctic voyages. I loved the descriptions pf the snow-cylinders (rollers) rolling in the wind (reference from Roald Amundsen's 1913 account), and Lovecraft's own fictional mythology of the place, Leng.… (more)

Some of these tales are better than others, but all reflect the authors command of English and mastery of (literally) unspeakable horror. The genre isn't exactly my cup of tea, but the writing and the myth building made it worthy of a serious perusal. The only complaint I have is the ordering of the stories, not chronological, not by subject. not by length or location but by ??? Perhaps just another of the mysteries the author revered...

An entertaining but inessential eldritch companion to 2008's Necronomicon collection. The best of H. P. Lovecraft's stories suck you in with their mysterious, oppressive atmosphere, then win your heart with their strong storytelling bones, erudite depth and creative horrors. In this way, they compel the reader to forgive their verbosity and predictability, and make every cultured reader a fan, whether passionate or begrudging.

I didn't write a conventional review of the Necronomicon when I read it a few years ago (preferring instead a pastiche meta-review written in Lovecraft's style, which I'm still rather proud of), but the above praise is more fitting for the stories of that collection, which stated – and proved – to contain "the best weird tales of H. P. Lovecraft". The subtitle for 2011's Eldritch Tales declares it to be a "miscellany of the macabre": stories and oddments which had not already been collected in a single volume.

All of the best tales were indeed collected in the Necronomicon – in fact, everything that is worthwhile for all but the most committed of fans. Eldritch Tales is certainly an inferior volume, hoovering up what remained and putting it on display – or, as Lovecraft himself puts it in one of the stories here, "things have learnt to walk that ought to crawl" (pg. 180). It doesn't really have any hidden gems, not even a single star story that you could raise as a selling point. It does have many serviceable stories, and even Lovecraft's juvenilia is not too shabby, but that in itself cannot recommend it too highly.

What Eldritch Tales does have is that same perverse, malignant atmosphere of unseen horror which seeps into all of Lovecraft's lines. The stories might be lesser, and the collection only for the completist fan or the hoarder of demoniac lore, but that compulsion to feel what has become known as 'Lovecraftian' will always draw us in.
