Arkham House & Lovecraft

When H.P. Lovecraft passed away, his friends Arthur Derleth and Donald Wandrei made him famous with the creation of Arkham House, a publishing organization specializing in bizarre fiction. Arkham House Lovecraft Books have kept alive the legacy of H.P. Lovecraft while giving a voice to the horror genre. Arkham House published its first H.P. Lovecraft book in 1939, The Outsider and Others, which contained 37 creepy short stories, novellas, and essays written by the author. The company is known for the high quality of its printing and binding, making collectible Arkham House Lovecraft Books a valuable resource for true fans of horror. Collectors view their distinct covers and illustrations as works of art and the perfect homage to the unique writing of Lovecraft.

H.P. Lovecraft is one of the most influential authors in the horror genre despite living a life of relative obscurity. He squandered his inheritance and died poor, having only published his stories in pulp magazines. In fact, without the perseverance of Derleth and Wandrei's vision, Lovecraft may have never been discovered at all. Arkham House Lovecraft Books live on through its devoted fanbase, a group that reads the works of new authors while still always looking to add the stories of Cthulhu to their collections. Over the last 60 years, Arkham House has published over 200 unique, collectible books that bring life (or death) to the libraries of fantasy and horror fans around the world.
