By H. P. Lovecraft
"The oldest and most powerful emotion of mankind is worry, and the oldest and most powerful type of worry is worry of the unknown."
--H. P. LOVECRAFT, "Supernatural Horror in Literature"
Howard Phillips Lovecraft without end replaced the face of horror, myth, and technology fiction with a impressive sequence of reports as influential because the works of Poe, Tolkien, and Edgar Rice Burroughs. His chilling mythology demonstrated a gateway among the recognized universe and an historical size of otherworldly terror, whose unspeakable denizens and large landscapes--dread Cthulhu, Yog-Sothoth, the Plateau of Leng, the Mountains of Madness--have earned him an everlasting position within the heritage of the macabre.
