After picking up our last board game Arkham Horror , We’ve decided to look a little deeper in to the genre by reading up on H.P. Lovecraft .An author during the 1920’s, Lovecraft created the Cthulhu Mythos an American Horror genre.
This genre has became a hit among game developers, especially Fantasy Flight Games who has created a handful of Cthulhu based games.
The other night however, we decided to dedicate our evening hours to begin reading some of Lovecraft’s short stories.
We began with a copy of The Complete Collections of H.P. Lovecraft , and started with a story titled The Nameless City . The Nameless City is a short story of about 16 pages (at least on my tablet’s e-reader) . My wife loved the verboseness of Lovecraft’s written style, it really is painting a picture with words.
I very much enjoyed this story, it had elements of excitement and fear, and was written with great detail. We will most definitely be reading more works by H.P. Lovecraft .
