      PULP FICTION
         late 1800’s – mid 1950’s


Howard Phillips Lovecraft 1890 –1937) was an American author who achieved posthumous fame through his influential works of horror fiction. 
During his life he was virtually unknown and was only published in Pulp Magazines such as Weird Tales.

Never able to support himself from earnings as author and editor, Lovecraft saw commercial success increasingly elude him in this latter period, partly because he lacked the confidence and drive to promote himself. He subsisted in progressively straitened circumstances in his last years; an inheritance was completely spent by the time he died at the age of 46.
 

Lovecraft is now regarded as one of the most significant 20th-century authors in his genre—horror.

Shame he never found success while he was alive. He's one of the horror masters.

Liz said...

Wow, I wonder what he would have gone on to do if he hadn't died so young. What a shame.

Ella said...

He was so talented! This happens a lot to creative types-so, sad~

As a young adult, I went through a phase of loving horror...mostly movies...but now, I don't like horror at all. I guess there's just too much horror in real life.
