Painting of Cthulhu titled "Cthulhu Awakens"

Bob Eggleton's "Cthulhu Awakens"

Other than Valentine’s Day and Lovecraft’s Birthday, what better day to celebrate all things Cthulhu than Halloween? Here at Machina Memorialis, we’re celebrating the day by downloading and reading the free Complete Works of Lovecraft eBook put together by Cthulhu Chick. Cthulhu Chick offers the eBook in PDF, ePUB and MOBI formats. I’ve downloaded it to my iPad and took a gander and it looks good. It even comes with cover art by cover created by Santiago Casares.

A simple note: This isn’t actually the complete works of Lovecraft but, it appears, the complete stories of Lovecraft, an important distinction for those interested in Cthulhuiana as this excludes his poetry, including the sonnet cycle “The Fungi from Yuggoth” and his essays, such as “Supernatural Horror in Literature.” To see what’s missing, take a look at the H. P. Lovecraft bibliography.
