HP Lovecraft

HP (Howard Philips) Lovecraft was an American author of horror, fantasy and science fiction, much of his work belongs to the sub-genre "weird fiction".

He is the founder of the popular Cthulhu Mythos which is a series of loosely interconnected fiction featuring a pantheon of humanity-nullifying entities. There are computer games, roleplay games, artwork, novels and short stories written by a number of authors that make up the Cthulhu universe.

Much of Lovecrafts work was pessimistic and quite cynical and most of his protagonists are very much the antithesis of the traditional character. He achieved a limited fame through his life, however since he passed away he has become much more popular and is now regarded by many as one of the most influential horror writers of the 20th century.
