About the Book

H. P. Lovecraft wrote the short story "The Whisperer in Darkness." It was written between February and September 1930 and first appeared in Weird Tales in August 1931. It is a horror/science fiction hybrid, similar to "The Color Out of Space" (1927). Despite numerous references to the Cthulhu Mythos, the supernatural does not play many roles in the plot and therefore reflects Lovecraft's transformation to a sci-fi writer. Mi-Go, an alien race, is also introduced in the story. Much to the chagrin of Albert N. Wilmarth, local academic, bizzare things are sighted floating in rivers in the area of rural Vermont after a flood which consequently resurfaces the debates regarding an old myth of hill-dwelling monsters that abducts humans. However, Wilmarth is drawn into a surprising correspondence that leads to a troubling discovery when he begins receiving letters from an individual named Henry Wentworth Akeley which talks about the alleged presence close to his farmhouse of an extraterrestrial race worshipping ancient cosmic deities. "The Haunter of the Dark," "At the Mountains of Madness," "The Burial Place," and "The Lurker at the Threshold" are among the volumes that contain Lovecraft's supernatural tales.

About Author

H. P. Lovecraft

American author of strange, scientific, fantasy, and horror fiction, Howard Phillips Lovecraft was born on August 20, 1890, in the United States. His contribution to the Cthulhu Mythos is what makes him most famous. Lovecraft was raised in New England but was born in Providence, Rhode Island. He got involved in the speculative fiction scene and had work published in several pulp publications. Lovecraft settled in New York City, married Sonia Greene in 1924, and eventually served as the center of a larger literary collective known as the "Lovecraft Circle." Lovecraft's stay in New York had a negative impact on both his mental health and his financial situation. Until his death at age 46 from intestinal cancer, he would continue to write for another 11 years. The concept of cosmicism, which served as both the central topic of his literature and Lovecraft's philosophy, forms the foundation of his whole body of work. According to cosmicism, mankind is a tiny component of the cosmos and might vanish at any time. He is one of the most important writers of supernatural horror fiction from the 20th century. Lovecraft was never able to make enough money as a novelist and editor to sustain himself during his adult life. In the 1970s, Lovecraft's works had an academic rebirth, which was followed by several adaptations and spiritual successors.
