H P Lovecraft was born in 1890 and lived most of his life in Providence, Rhode Island. A major figure in twentieth-century supernatural fiction, Lovecraft wrote many classic horror stories, many of which were published in book form only after his death in 1937. Among them are At the Mountains of Madness and Other Novels of Terror (1964), Dagon and Other Macabre Tales (1965) and The Horror in the Museum and Other Revisions (1970).
