If you've already dipped your toe into Lovecraftian waters and liked the temperature, here is the place to dive in. After reading some smaller collections, I simply had to read them all. He has a very unique writing style that really shouldn't work, but is somehow perfect.

This is, as announced, the complete fiction of HP Lovecraft. Or 1100 pages or so of the cosmicest of horror. I've read a lot of Lovecraft over the years, but was always too cheap/poor (tomah-to/tomay-to) to spring for everything he's ever written. At least until I found out I could get this for a dollar on Kobo (yeah, I know it says Kindle - see earlier fruit/vegetable reference). I've dipped in an out of this over the last couple of years before finally deciding to just hammer out the final 51% in the last two or three weeks. If you know who Lovecraft is, you either want to own this, or burn it in effigy (hard for an e-book). If you haven't heard of him, it's probably because you've been wandering the cosmos seeking out massive cities built with non-Euclidean architecture and riding Shoggoths. For those who are interested (can't go wrong for a buck), this has everything you can think of, with probably a few shorts you haven't. The formatting is a bit weird at times, which I guess is appropriate (non-Euclidean formatting?), but certainly not enough to put you off.

If you're interested checking out Lovecraft, this probably isn't for you (try The Mountains of Madness or some of his more famous stuff instead as a taster), if you're a fan and want to read the few you've missed, this is a solid option.

Horror as it should be. Lovecraft's writing is traditional horror, in a very old school style, but that's what makes it great. Written before the technologies of today, which have in part lulled us into a false sense of knowing everything, it's a taste of what a lack of knowledge can feel like, the fear of the unknown. How little we do know, really and how happy the smoke screen of technological knowledge is, to shields ourselves from the world of unknown fears.
A master of tapping into the nature of human fear and teasing it out of the reader. You should be afraid of the dark, it's a human instinct for survival.

Excellent compendium of Lovecraft's classic horror tales.
