Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937) was an American author of horror, fantasy, and science fiction, known then simply as weird fiction. His major inspiration and invention was cosmic horror: the idea that life is incomprehensible to human minds and that the universe is fundamentally alien. Those who genuinely reason, like his protagonists, gamble with sanity. He has developed a cult following for his Cthulhu Mythos, a series of loosely interconnected fictions featuring a pantheon of human-nullifying entities, as well as the Necronomicon, a fictional grimoire of magical rites and forbidden lore. His works were deeply pessimistic and cynical, challenging the values of Enlightenment, Romanticist, and Christian humanism. Lovecraft's protagonists usually achieve the mirror-opposite of traditional gnosis and mysticism by momentarily glimpsing the horror of ultimate reality. Although Lovecraft's readership was limited during his life, his reputation has grown over the decades, and he is now commonly regarded as one of the most influential horror writers of the 20th century, exerting widespread and indirect influence, and frequently compared to Edgar Allan Poe.… (lisätietoja)

Back in Arkham. What we would today call a retelling of Frankenstein. I was actually on the edge of my seat toward the end, but the gratuitous hatred of black people right smack in the middle gives the whole thing a big black eye. I did not love the introduction of the unreliable narrator trope either. (I should mention that this one is novelette length; it was originally released as a magazine serial and there is a brief recap of the previous events at the beginning of each new section; I found it interesting to watch the narrator evolving events in his mind each time. That's how I took it, anyway.) Oh, and I almost forgot: ICK!

(Moved 2015 review to the individual work Sept. 2017 to make room to review the collection under its own entry.) ( )

I still think Lovecraft was a hack. "It was too horrible to describe" does not belong in a work of fiction. If you can't describe it to your reader, maybe you should take your cosmic horror down a notch or two.

His stories are always filled with nihilistic people and places, which is one of the things I like. OTOH, his characters are also stereotypes right down to the end.

Lovecraft's real work of art is his universe of strange gods, half human worshipers and the creeping fear that the whole world evoked. That's why his work lives on and expands so well. ( )

Highly enjoyable read, like a slightly more modern telling of Frankenstein. ( )

Although presented here as one story, this is actually a series of six linked stories about the mad scientist, Dr. Herbert West. More than anything else by Lovecraft, these feel like true pulp fiction, written for pure shocking entertainment, with a dashed-off, distinctly "non-literary" feel. Originally published as a serial, the magazine that they were written for apparently (and unfortunately) demanded that Lovecraft 're-cap' previous events in each installment, which makes for repetitive, tedious reading when you're not waiting a month between segments.

Once the re-cap bits are dealt with, though, the story itself is great fun. It can be viewed as a parody of or an homage to Mary Shelley's 'Frankenstein' - but where Dr. Frankenstein was an earnest experimenter, Dr. West is a straight-up psychopath. Each segment tries to outdo the one before with gross and disturbing gory details. [One 'alert' - the third segment clearly reflects what can be most generously interpreted as the narrator's racism, in a way that's a different sort of unpleasant.]

I haven't seen the movie that was based on these stories. Someone told me, back when it was a recent release, that its cheesy schlockiness didn't do Lovecraft justice. But after reading the stories, I actually feel that a schlocky, campy adaptation is appropriate to the source material.

Uma versão mais rebuscada e elaborada da reanimação e regresso à vida iniciada com Frankenstein mas com muito mais horror e gore. Uma história notável de horror pelo mestre do mesmo. ( )
