H.P. Lovecraft is a modern master of horror and gothic fiction, influencing a generation of writers and creating dark worlds that still haunt the speculative fiction of today. Lovecraft's father died in a mental institution when Lovecraft was only two years of age and he spent very little time at school, due to illnesses. By the 1920s he had began to sell to the popular pulp magazines of the day, Weird Tales and Astonishing Tales.
