Lovecraft, whose full name is Howard Phillips Lovecraft, was an American writer of weird and horror fiction, primarily active in the early 20th century. He was born on August 20, 1890, in Providence, Rhode Island, and passed away on March 15, 1937.
Lovecraft is best known for his creation of the Cthulhu Mythos, a shared fictional universe populated by ancient, cosmic deities, alien entities, and unfathomable horrors. His stories often explored themes of cosmicism, the insignificance of humanity in the face of a vast and indifferent universe, and the fragility of sanity when confronted with the unknown.
During his lifetime, Lovecraft’s work was not widely recognized, and he struggled financially, publishing his stories mainly in pulp magazines. It was only after his death that his work gained popularity and had a profound influence on subsequent generations of writers and artists, particularly in the horror and speculative fiction genres.
His unique style, characterized by dense and descriptive prose, rich in atmosphere and mood, continues to captivate readers and inspire a dedicated following known as the “Lovecraftian” fandom.
