The Lovecraft Anthology, Volume 1 (2011)
language
English
3.94 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: This is a collection of graphic adaptations of H. P. Lovecraft's short stories. Included in this volume are some of his "greatest hits". In spite of being presented in a comic format, this really reads more like a dense picture book. Yes, there are panels, but they're really j...

English

review 1: Well, I am continuing my exploration of Lovecraft, as suggested by my son, who is a big fan. This was a very disturbing story, as most of his seem to be. I certainly could sense the building terror of the main protagonist as the story moved toward its terrifying finish. The autho...

English

review 1: Between the creeping madness of Poe and the blind visceral horror of Stephen King lies H.P. Lovecraft. Creator of the great Cthulhu Mythos, Lovecraft is guaranteed to make you doubt the relative safety of the known universe. Imagine, hidden in the spaces between light and dark, a...

review 1: A caveat: I'm not any sort of expert in the area of graphic novels, so if you're looking for an expert review of the Lovecraft Anthology, this isn't it. This review serves for both volumes in this series. I enjoyed both volumes, although the second volume had some fonts that were...

review 1: Vengo de una seguidilla de cuentos de Lovecraft que me crearon un rechazo bastante fuerte por este autor. Así que ya desde el vamos estoy mal predispuesta a la hora de leerlo. Por suerte, esta historia me enganchó y me gustó la forma en la que está narrada (justo lo opuesto a lo ...

review 1: Not really Lovecraft's fault, but when I read spooky I like to be spooked all the way. While Lovecraft may have blazed the trail for contemporary horror/suspense writers, living in a Stephen King world makes it hard to go back in time, and Lovecraft never delivers that killer-clo...
Lovecraft - Antologia vol.1 (2012)
language
English

review 1: For a guy who envisioned creatures that the human mind can't comprehend - let alone visually depict - Lovecraft translates pretty damn well into comic book form. The two best in this collection happen to be my two favorite Lovecraft stories, the Call of Cthulhu and The Shadow Ove...

review 1: Nightmares are dreams in which the dreamer feels helpless, adding ancient creatures and hellish landscapes might drive a person to insanity. In H.P. Lovecraft's Call of Cthulhu, Lovecraft is the sole heir of his deceased uncle's lifetime work. Call of Cthulhu mixes mythos with su...

review 1: My first proper read of a Lovecraft story. Before I have dipped in but not engaged with the writing and not finished any. Less pulpy than I either remembered or expected but I still found I didnt engage fully or like completely the writing style although there were memorable tu...

review 1: This is my first entry into the mind of Lovecraft and I have to say I am astonished by his style of writing. Already I can tell that he is a master of terror and horror. The way he uses your own imagination against you to craft your own nightmare is truly masterful.The beasts and...
Eldritch Tales: A Miscellany of the Macabre (2011)
language
English

review 1: This is kind of a HP Lovecraft left-overs book featuring various poems, short stories, and an essay he wrote on Supernatural Horror In Literature. The essay is a great addition and features comments on his favourite authors at the time. I actually liked his poems a lot, which I'v...

English

review 1: If only all of us could write so concise, and elegantly at the age of fifteen as H.P.-- heck at any age. The prose was quite the compliment to an overall unsatisfying story. Of course the objective wasn't the beast, but the ambiguity of the circumstances; but there was something...
The Cats of Ulthar (2000)
language
English

review 1: Written and published in 1920, this story is only 3 pages long. I love it. I'm biased, having an affinity for cats. But this strange little story is both sad and satisfying, and yet I find myself wanting more. Menes is easily one of the most intriguing characters I've been expose...

review 1: Lovecraft è un autore di cui ho molto sentito parlare, ma che avevo trascurato.Finché in libreria non è spuntato il libro della Newton a poco prezzo.Due racconti: "La casa stregata" e "Orrore a Red Hook".La curiosità, più che l'amore per il genere, ha prevalso. Lo stile di Lovecr...

review 1: A riveting, fantastic Lovecraft tale of horror. I loved the descriptions of the queer town of Innsmouth, a mouldering city seemingly largely abandoned, despite the upper levels of its ancient mansions being boarded up. I loved the investigative work, the dark and secretive pact...

review 1: I seem to have a fervent longing for nightmares and chills because I can't seem to stop reading Lovecraft. I literally have to force myself to stop reading his novellas in order to make time for other books but I just can't seem to do so lately. The Thing on the Doorstep gets 4 s...

review 1: Anyone who ever thought or believed that Lovecraft was a bad writer needs to read "The Music of Erich Zann" immediately. It's brief, but I believe it is Lovecraft's masterpiece. It's a perfect story and has none of the "purple prose" problems that Lovecraft's detractors harp up...

review 1: June 30 is not the date I finished this book; it's the day I gave up on it. I keep hearing what a great writer Lovecraft is and how spooky and chilling his stories are. Okay, maybe I should have given them more of a chance. But... There's only so much vagueness I can take in a st...

review 1: I have to say that I really wanted to enjoy Lovecraft; and in some instances I did. However, I was ultimately driven away by the old language and how he tends to drone on. It is hard to review this because I did not finish the whole collected works. I also did not hate Lovecraf...

review 1: This one was a nice surprise. The story involves the interaction between a talented - but enigmatic - painter and the protagonist's reactions to his terrifying masterpieces. It doesn't take itself seriously; perhaps this is due to the story being told through conversation-- hav...

review 1: This compilation of Lovecraft's works was my first introduction to him. I was inspired to read it due to always hearing his name whispered as an influence by creators of many of my favorite novels and movies, and I am glad I did! I love reading classics of all genres, and I ins...

review 1: Written in Lovecraft's unique style, which you either like... or you don't. I do. It was one of his more whimsical stories, I thought, and longer than most. The movie deviates quite a bit from it, but you can see how the book inspired many of the sequences in the movie. My person...

review 1: Terror negro, agobiante, oscuro, escabroso, macabro y truculento. Sé que suena a trabalenguas (si lo dices rápido), pero así es como catalogo esta novela corta e intensa de Lovecraft. No escatima en darnos un vistazo de un pueblo ficticio, pero que parece tan real en su descripci...

review 1: This is the best compilation I've ever come across for Lovecraft's fiction. Just make sure you get the one with the purple ribbon page separator, because the original edition with the gold ribbon has a lot of typos and spelling errors. The only reason I did not give this beautifu...

review 1: This was the first bit of HP Lovecraft that I've ever read, after years of hearing hype about him and that word that no one can pronounce. After finishing this story I realize how early in Lovecraft's career it was written, and I look forward to reading more mature things by him....

review 1: Excellent. Blood-curdling to the core! Spooky atmosphere made spookier by Lovecraft's glorious, archaic prose. As much as I enjoy the 1985 Stuart Gordon film, and really B-movie horror films don't get any better (or campier), but Lovecraft's story is an entirely different animal....

review 1: Catch-up review #4! I listened to this one on Friday night as I was driving back from Philly after my business trip. It was dark, and I was alone in the car, so of course I'm like "Let's listen to some Lovecraft! :D"I have this weird thing about Lovecraft, though. I love the IDEA...

review 1: Esta vez Lovecraft no me dejó con las ganas de una resolución a sus misterios sino que se pasó de la raya u.u (ya sé, soy la gata flora). Describe todo con lujo de detalles y para mi gusto con superabundancia de adjetivos en la línea de "fétido"o "deforme", que en tanta cantidad ...

review 1: Howard Philips Lovecraft en este relato habla sobre Wilbur Whateley, su hermano y sus 'padres', así como el horror que traen sobre un pequeño pueblo llamado Dunwich. En este libro se hace mención de el Necronomicon y sus contenidos bastantes veces. Es interesante la manera en que...

review 1: Soy fanático confeso de las historias de horror. Desde muy niño, cuando descubrí los escritos de Edgar Allan Poe, se despertó en mí un gusto irrefrenable por todo lo oscuro y melancólico; y de todo el abanico de opciones y escritores que se han enfilado en el género, mi favorito...

review 1: As "horror" fiction, The Dunwich Horror fails miserably for me. It doesn't create tense moments of personal terrifying experiences. On the contrary the reader is provided a sense of comfort all the way by depersonalizing the horror of Wilbur and making it a community experience i...
