H.P. Lovecraft quotes
Topic of this day is the famous H.P. Lovecraft and his best quotes. If you are a fan of Howard Phillips Lovecraft and his writing you will enjoy this article.
Howard Phillips Lovecraft was born in Providence, part of Rhode Island, on 20th August 1890. Mr Lovecraft and his writing career was influenced by another famous writer, Edgar Allan Poe. He began his career as a amateur journalist, writing for some local newspapers. Some time after that he developed an interested in fiction and fantasy. And that was the real start of his career.
His first bigger success was selling some of his stories to Weird Tales, horror magazine. That gave him a taste of what a successful writer’s life might be like. He continued writing and later on published the famous “The Call of Cthulhu“. Again the publisher was Weird Tales. The Call of Cthulhu was indeed something special, influencing a lot of other horror writers to use some of the elements found in that book. I’d say that was his biggest legacy.
His final days ware not so bright, to say the least. He struggled to support himself, barely making ends meet. He did some ghostwriting and editing to earn a little money. He stayed at Rhode Island until his very end. H.P. Lovecraft died on 15nth march, 1937. We now have more than 60 stories and short novels from this great author. And of course plenty of good quotes and quotations.
