About the author

Howard Phillips Lovecraft (US: ; August 20, 1890–March 15, 1937) was an American writer of weird fiction and horror fiction. Born in Providence, Rhode Island, he spent most of his life there, and his fiction was primarily set against a New England backdrop. Lovecraft was never able to support himself from earnings as an author and editor, and he subsisted in progressively strained circumstances in his last years. He died of cancer at the age of 46.

Lovecraft was virtually unknown during his lifetime and published only in pulp magazines before he died in poverty, but is now regarded as one of the most significant 20th-century authors of weird and horror fiction. Among his most celebrated tales are The Rats in the Walls, The Call of Cthulhu, At the Mountains of Madness, The Shadow over Innsmouth, and The Shadow Out of Time. His writings were the basis of the Cthulhu Mythos, which has inspired a large body of pastiches, games, music and other media drawing on Lovecraft's characters, setting and themes, constituting a wider body of work known as Lovecraftian horror.

H. P. Lovecraft. Kronologiske værker: 1917 og 1918

1917 markerede begyndelsen på H. P. Lovecrafts korte men intense karriere som kommerciel horrorforfatter. Mange litteraturkritikere har kritiseret Lovecrafts skrivestil som værende alt for svulstig og omstændelig. Faktum er imidlertid, at hans enorme produktion har dannet forbillede for mange af nutidens store horror-forfattere som f.eks. Stephen King, Clive Barker, John Carpenter og H. R. Giger – for blot at nævne nogle få. Lovecrafts historier er for betydningsfulde til at lade dem forsvinde i glemslen. Derfor er det vores hensigt at udgive H. P. Lovecrafts samlede værker i kronologisk rækkefølge, i en oversættelse der er tro mod Lovecrafts skrivestil og tone. Denne udgave indeholder følgende noveller: Graven (1917) Dagon (1917) Erindringer om Dr. Samuel Johnson (1917) Polaris (1918)
