Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1820-1937)
American writer, author of horror stories (weird fiction) and fantasy, creator of the Cthulhu mythology. He is one of the forerunners of science fiction, his stories in this convention introduce many of the creatures known from his mythology (commonly referred to as "Lovecraft mythology" or "Cthulhu mythology") – a pantheon of unimaginable otherworldly beings with divine powers. His stories are chiefly set in New England, whose old districts are dominated by derelict Victorian houses. He also created Arkham, a fictional city in Massachusetts, which years later became the inspiration for the name of a psychiatric hospital in Batman comics, among others.
Mentions and references to Lovecraft's works have also appeared in music, e.g. in Metallica's song "The Call of Ktulu", which is an illustration of the short story "The Call of Cthulhu". Numerous references can also be found in computer, board, card, and role-playing (RPG) games. Humorous references to the writer's prose are, meanwhile, made by the writer Jan Plata-Przechlewski in the comics "Wampiurs Wars".
H.P. Lovecraft was a prolific author, whose prose is celebrated all over the world. His popularity has reached an absolute peak in the 21st century. Never before has the master of cosmic horror been read as willingly, criticized with such ferocity, and analyzed in so many ways. His impact on contemporary pop culture cannot be overstated.
