About the Author: H.P. Lovecraft

Howard Phillips Lovecraft, of Providence, Rhode Island, was an American author of horror, fantasy and science fiction.Lovecraft s major inspiration and invention was cosmic horror life is incomprehensible to human minds and the universe is fundamentally alien Those who genuinely reason, like his protagonists, gamble with sanity Lovecraft has developed a cult following for his Cthulhu Mythos, a series of loosely interconnected fictions featuring a pantheon of human nullifying entities, as well as the Necronomicon, a fictional grimoire of magical rites and forbidden lore His works were deeply pessimistic and cynical, challenging the values of the Enlightenment, Romanticism and Christianity Lovecraft s protagonists usually achieve the mirror opposite of traditional gnosis and mysticism by momentarily glimpsing the horror of ultimate reality.Although Lovecraft s readership was limited during his life, his reputation has grown over the decades He is now commonly regarded as one of the most influential horror writers of the 20th Century, exerting widespread and indirect influence, and frequently compared to Edgar Allan Poe Wikipedia


AzathothThe modern world has been stripped of imagination and belief in magic when a man gazing from his window upon the stars comes to observe secret vistas unsuspected by normal humanity One night the gulf between his world and the stars is bridged, and his mind ascends from his body out into the boundless cosmos.

    3.5A glimpse of what a dreamer might encounter if he is allowed by Outer deities Azathoth and the skies to become a part of their fabulous wonder It seems it is a beginning of a novel that Lovecraft never finished Too bad It would have been great.

    What a tantalizing little fragment Part of me wishes Lovecraft had finished the story, as this very brief glimpse has language that deviates from his usual, in a beautifully lyrical way Then again, some things are best left as they are.
