Today we received a belated Sinterklaas present.
My owner and her OtherHalf had gotten some spending money from Sinterklaas and they spend the money by ordering some books.

And this is one of those books!
The Complete Fiction by H.P. Lovecraft.

It has all of Lovecraft's stories, including one of my all time favorite short stories: 'The Temple'. I will certainly enjoy reading this book.

ooh - nice edition, too!

do you know this quote?

“When I get a little money I buy books; and if any is left I buy food and clothes.”

Desiderius Erasmus quotes (Dutch Priest, Humanist and Editor of the New Testament, 1469-1536)

(Just noticed he was Dutch!)

Awesome! It's so pretty! I hope you write about what you think of his stories.

I've never heard of this before....what is it?

@Jeffe: Who needs food? ;-)

@Katie: H.P Lovecraft is the father of Horror. Ever heard of Cthulhu or the Necronomicon? He's the author who made them up. Name any unspeakable monster beastie and Lovecraft most probably wrote about it first as well.

He was a master of storytelling in my opinion. He could write a two page description of a monster and have you totally creeped out and scared while you still don't even know what the thing actually is.
