Now here is something interesting. Did you know that H.P. Lovecraft destroyed most of his early writings?
A great writer already, by any stretch of the imagination at the young age of 18, H.P.Lovecraft decided to perform a bit of literary housecleaning as it were. What this means to us is that a huge amount of this brilliant writer’s early work is lost forever. We can thank his mother for what little does survive. Most of the things he kept himself were his scientific writings rather than his fiction, or in a few cases some of his verse.
