Summary

HP Lovecraft was born in 1890 in Providence, Rhode Island. He was a prodigious but sickly youth. At 14, he contemplated suicide when his grandfather died, leaving him and his mother almost penniless.

He began to write poetry and a series of literary spats in a newspaper brought him attention and the beginnings of a career.

But until the last decade of his life, the works for which he is so well known did not arrive. That last decade was prolific, but with little income his life downgraded from one rented house to another.

In 1936, often malnourished, he was diagnosed with cancer and succumbed to it the following year.

This comes to you courtesy of Miniature Masterpieces, who have an excellent range of quality short stories from the masters of the craft. Do search for Miniature Masterpieces at any digital store for further information.

This audiobook is also duplicated in print as an ebook. Same title, same words. Perhaps a different experience but with Amazon’s whispersync you can pick up and put down on any device. Start on audio, continue in print, and any which way after that. This and these are Miniature Masterpieces. Join us for the journey.
