I agree. And even though it's not his best I still think it's a decent book.

Currently reading The Best of H.P. Lovecraft, and so far I'm very impressed. They are all good, if not great. It was pretty funny, in the introduction the person mentions that Lovecraft was accused of racism, I was immediately skeptical and thought that this was the normal situation of people just starting controversy over a 'graphic' tale. Then within a few pages of the first story the guy's cat was named "N*ggerman". (Can I say that on the forum?...)

A good amount of people were, but still the point stands. Just look up some of his racist quotes, they're absolutely awful, if not somewhat funny because it's so bad. It wasn't just blacks he hated. But despite this he still is one of the best and most influential horror writers ever.

It took me a few Lovecraft stories to get into his work. His writing style demands one's full attention.
