|Behold! The picture of myself, as done by Lars Simkins! It gives little credit of myself, but it gives the idea.|
In case you can't figure it out, yes its a joke. Lovecraft fans know what that is.
|Yes, I recognized the name, (I like Lovecraft) but it probably should be TREMBLE (Brit or Yank English), but I'm not going to correct, you do the edit... |
OK, I'm a ***T for doing that

|And it's Azathoth, not Azothoth.|
|Makes a note to continue with his reading of Lovecraft stories (I still have a way to go, I'm only in the "S" titles as I recall). I found a web site, no longer there, a few years ago and downloaded the pdf files of all the main Lovecraft stories, and printed them out. Unfortunately the computer with the pdf files passed on, and all I have is the print versions. |

|But you can still type and make your own PDF's out of it. |
|Short ansewerer (I deliberately misspelled that): NO. (I can't make PDF's)|

|We will also be satisfied with just simple .docs-files. |

|Aha! Thank you!|
That appears to be almost the same site (as far as content organization) as I used to visit. However, I still have a suspicion that site was pulled because of NOT public domain. Maybe that changed.

|Lovecraft books have entered public domain, expect a few that have been written with other people. Books set in Lovecraft universe are obviously not in public domain, but the 75 years-after-death-span has ended, making his works automatically entering public domain.|
For the better I say. There are good books, and people are more interested if its free.
|So, whats your favorite story so far?|
Of the few anthologys i have, iv particularly enjoyed "the rats in the walls" and "The crypt".
|The Beast in the Cave is one my favorites. So is In the Walls of Eryx.|
|The Shadow Over Innsmouth is a good one, but just for its tongue-in-cheek style (which I didn't think H.P. would be capable of...) I like Ibid. |
|Read "The Haunter of the Dark" just now, and i was attually quite disturbed by it for some reason... |
Out of interest, has anyone attempted any of E.A.Poe's work, as it is very similar to Lovecrafts work with his darker stories?
The problem i have with them is their old nature of prose, and take a fair bit of reading when you just want relativly straight forward text upon an evenings read, which is where the slightly more modern tales from Lovercraft shine.
I dont seem to have "The Beast in the Cave" in any of my collections, so i shall investigate it online tomorrow.
