Just wondering who else has read HP Lovecraft's stories? If so, what did you think? Also which ones? I have only read "The call of Cthulu" and "At the Mountains of Madness" but loved every minute of them.

My ex and I, both horror fans, came to the conclusion that there are two "schools" of horror enthusiasts; those who enjoy Lovecraft and those who enjoy Poe. He didn't like Poe but loved *ahem* Lovecraft. I love Poe but don't really go in for monster stories so I have never read any Lovecraft stories. I have a collection of short stories that I picked up because I was in a bookstore and at a loss for anything I really wanted and I believe a trip to the bookstore in which one does not buy anything is a wasted trip

I don't see Poe and Lovecraft as mutually exclusive. I love both authors.

I have a large book of short stories, which is excellent. some are fantastic, and others are just unfollowable, so he didn't always hit the mark, but I particularly enjoyed the rats in the walls, and one where a villages cats eat someone. very good. I also have a cuddly toy Cthulhu

He wrote many classics. Look out for The Colour Out Of Space, Herbert West - Re-animator, The Shadow Over Innsmouth and Dagon in particular.

I was reading HP Lovecraft for a while, but I sort of put it on the back burner. I will get back to reading his works when I have the time. I know that his family was mentally unstable.
