Lovecraft's 'Supernatural Horror in Literature' Reading List

Description: Works discussed in Lovecraft's famous essay, for anyone who wants a reading checklist. Haven't always been sure which is the best collection of an author's works, so feel free to add to the list. Not all of them are recommended reading according to Lovecraft, but all get a mention.
