Summary "HP Lovecraft (1890-1937) is widely regarded as one of the great horror writers and a pervasive influence on 20th century popular culture. His monstrous creations have shaped countless films, fantasy art, graphic novels and computer games. His fiction is an inspiration to authors and filmmakers including Ridley Scott and Stephen King. This reclusive resident of Providence, Rhode Island, was only published in pulp magazines before he died in poverty, aged just 46. Consumed with self-doubt and despair, his inner demons inhabit every page. He is now regarded as one of the most significant 20th-century authors in his genre. Charlotte Montague has written an intriguing biography of the enigmatic author and in the process uncovers the mystery of the strange man behind the darkness -- the master of modern horror fiction"-- Provided by publisher.
