Story

I'm be reading all of The Collected Works of H.P. Lovecraft by November 19th 2013.

H.P. Lovecraft is considered by many to be the father of modern horror and much of his work was concerned with man's inability to remain sane when confronted with the knowledge of our utter insignificance in the universe at large. Themes of madness and deteriation are common in his work.

With this in mind I'll be joining some members of the FantasyBookClub.org to read all of The Collected Works of H.P. Lovecraft in order to raise money towards the mental health charity Mind. Mind do brilliant work supporting people who find our own mundane universe without any of the challenging nihilistic Lovecraftian elements.
