    HP Lovecraft: Cthulhu stories

    I've heard great things about these stories. I don't really know much about them. From the info on Wikipedia, I gather they are a bunch of related short stories rather than novels.

    I was looking at my local library online to try to get an anthology, but it's a vicious labyrinth to find a good anthology. Some look like they might have "fan fiction" from other authors, and other craziness.

    Can anybody point me to a good source of what books/stories there are, what order they should be read (if it matters), or a good anthology that has them compiled well?

    I can't help with an anthology, but a decent book that I own is "The Best of H.P. Lovecraft: Bloodcurdling Tales of Horror and the Macabre" ISBN 0-345-35080-4. Hope this helps.

    from what I'm told it's some sweet ****, a good family friend is all about the HP Lovecraft and the Cthulhu thing.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    The Old Ones are not amused.
    People are broad-minded. They'll accept the fact that a person can be an alcoholic, a dope fiend, a wife beater and even a newspaperman, but if a man doesn't drive, there's something wrong with him.

    Just a little too weird for this old D&Ders taste. Maybe my resistance is due to my attitude that psionics is total rubbish.

    Do you also think its cheating to use iron blades against stone-age opponents? Those were the good old days, let me tell you.

    I haven't read any Lovecraft since I checked out the Necronomican from the Innesmouth public library.

    Great stuff, read some of Kings works and you see he owes more than a small
    debt to H.P.

    Nah. The Stone Agers had the audacity to intrude where they had no business being - so a Meteor Shower seemed a fitting welcome present.

    Brian Lumley owes a HUGE debt to HPL. I really like his stuff though. And Lovecraft is just the master..

    Actually most American horror writers owe much to Lovecraft. read the Necroscope series
    a long time ago, might have to revist those.

    Not that I consider "Stephen King" a ringing endorsement, but still, he's big enough a name that its nice to see the credit given.

    For the record, part of the reason I've gotten interested is not only because I've heard how great he is, but he is often compared with EA Poe. EA Poe is one of my favorite all-time authors.

    Makes perfect sense. I don't care for King either.

    LM3K....took this advice and found this book at the public library. It seems to be a good anthology that is all Lovecraft and not half fan stories from other authors. I've been reading it on and off. Read about 5 stories so far. A nice way to end the day just before going to bed.
