The Colour Out of Space
The Colour Out of Space | H P Lovecraft
6 posts | 9 read | 2 to read
H.P. Lovecraft was perhaps the greatest twentieth century practitioner of the horror story, introducing to the genre a new evil, monstrous, pervasive and unconquerable. At the heart of these three stories are terrors unthinkable and strange: a crash-landing meteorite, the wretched inhabitant of an ancient castle and a grave-robber's curse.

There are valid issues with Lovecraft's personal views which I will not reiterate because they are well documented. Speaking only of the short story, it is among the fan favorites for good reason. HPL truly captures the the horror of something completely inhuman and outside of human understanding. A great sci-fi horror that doesn't rely on gimmicky alien “effects“ but tugs at something universally, anciently frightening.

My first Lovecraft book. Will definitely read another. Very vivid descriptions and yet I feel like everyone probably has a totally different experience because it leaves much up to the imagination.

Liz_M That is a wonderfully creepy cover, too! 3mo

A friend just asked me which Lovecraft story to start with, and I could hardly contain my excitement.

The animated 'iLovecraft 2' app for The Colour Out of Space was really amazing! 🤗 I totally enjoyed the surreal magic, and spooky jump scares that sure got me a few times by surprise, best for iOS reading in the dark. 😱 A groovy treasure that I highly recommend!
