>>7648234 i've read 32 of the more pop ones, i recommend: rats in the walls, shadow over innsmouth, horror at red hook, dreams in the witchhouse, under the pyramids, at the mountains of madness, dream quest of unknown kadath
>>7648234 shadow over innsmouth is characteristically lovecraft involving the settings, blasphemy suspense and the intrapersonal discovery of being a dagon mofo... somehow i am drawn back to dream quest of unknown kadath... it doesn't tie up loose ends or have that payoff, but it is about the journey
>>7648234 Same with me. If you're a big Lovecraft fan, and if you happen to like tabletop rpg's, you should check out the Call of Cthulhu tabletop rpg (any edition except d20 is good). Me and my friends have gotten years of fun out of that game.
>>7648234 Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath, The Music of Erich Zann (in my opinion his best), and The Strange High House in the Mist, which features my favorite opening paragraph of Lovecraft's:
>In the morning, mist comes up from the sea by the cliffs beyond Kingsport. White and feathery it comes from the deep to its brothers the clouds, full of dreams of dank pastures and caves of leviathan. And later, in still summer rains on the steep roofs of poets, the clouds scatter bits of those dreams, that men shall not live without rumor of old strange secrets, and wonders that planets tell planets alone in the night. When tales fly thick in the grottoes of tritons, and conchs in seaweed cities blow wild tunes learned from the Elder Ones, then great eager mists flock to heaven laden with lore, and oceanward eyes on tile rocks see only a mystic whiteness, as if the cliff's rim were the rim of all earth, and the solemn bells of buoys tolled free in the aether of faery.
