H. P. Lovecraft (1890–1937), a stalwart of American literature, showcased a mastery in the horror fiction realm, particularly emphasizing the profound dread of the cosmic unknown. His writings, mirroring the age-old conservative principle of human humility before the grandeur of the cosmos, often underscored mankind’s smallness within it. Although he may not have received the adulation he deserved in his own time, the scales of history have corrected this oversight. Today, Lovecraft stands tall as a titan of horror literature, with his creation of the Cthulhu Mythos testifying to his lasting impact on our cultural landscape. Arktos has published a collection of Lovecraft’s journal The Conservative.
