so im a big stephen king fan, and after reading crouch end, I started getting interested in lovecraft. I still havent gotten a chance to read any of his work, but id really like to start. so does anybody have any recommendations?
"At the Mountains of Madness" is one I'd recommend. It also has a few of his other short stories included with it. You'll be able to see where King and others were inspired. "At the Mountains of Madness" you could say, gave John Carpenter his idea for "The Thing". here is a link to some of his work that you might want to consider: inauthor:Howard inauthor:Phillips inauthor:Lovecraft - Google Book Search
You should try one of the newest Steven's books called Duma Key
