I have a small book containing a dozen of his stories.

The Silver Key didn't feel like a horror story. It felt like a man acceding from the ignorance of humanity, and leaving a corrupt world behind.

This kind of captures that feel, what with all the windows into other realms.

Oh man the compositioning in this piece is wonderful! I love the splitting effect you created between the figures and the center of action. Definitely a lot of eye-catching details in this work. Great job! :)

Certainly captures the madness of Lovecraft! I haven't gotten around to reading that story yet, but it reminds me a lot of the strange architecture from Ca'' of the Cthulhu.

This is amazingly done and the fact it is H.P. Lovecraft inspired is awesome.
