This eBook is a collection of 23 stories by H. P. Lovecraft, an influential American author of tales of horror, fantasy and science fiction. Lovecraft's stories are often set in a detailed fantasy world, complete with recurring characters, places and deities (e.g. the god Cthulhu). Themes such as inherited guilt and forbidden knowledge often appear in Lovecraft's stories.
