    H.P. Lovecraft never found fame during his lifetime and died in 1937 in relative obscurity. But in the decades that followed his death, his importance as a unique and original visionary in the genre of science fantasy and 'weird fiction' has grown monumentally, so that even talents such as author Stephen King and film-maker John Carpenter have described him as a prime influence upon their creative lives. Here, then, is a selection of his stories.

    Howard Phillips Lovecraft is among the greatest American writers of fantasy and the supernatural. Born in 1890, a native of Providence, Rhode Island, his health was uncertain from childhood and he led a sheltered early life. His semi-invalidism enabled him to read omnivorously, and as a shy imaginative child he began to invent what would in his adult life become a whole macabre fantastic world of his own, peopled by creatures out of his own weird imagination.

    The Thing on the Doorstep, another amazing tale of horror from the pen of H.P. Lovecraft. Imagine a person with a brilliant mind, but a very weak will meeting and marrying a person whose body is merely a vehicle transporting the "soul" of a very evil entity looking to trade bodies and become a man. Imagine also that this person with the weak will and brilliant mind is your best friend. Beware answering your friends knock at your door after midnight.
