Alternatively, all his stories are available online and you could read a few to see if you'd like to go ahead and pick up the books.
Call of Cthulhu is a good place to start and so is The Cats of Ulthar, but I'm very biased here. The others that are good are rather long ... At the Mountains of Madness, Shadows Over Innsmouth ... etc.
Whichever you choose to begin with ... enjoy.
Esioul ... another short tale would be The Outsider. Very short in comparison to his other tales.
Yes and melancholy .... like falling in love and never ever being able to find that person again and knowing you'll never see the like again either.
I agree with the Call of Cthulhu sentiments. Best story to start with, IMHO.
And yeah, Erich Zann is good. Not one of my favorites, but certainly melancholy. The Nameless City stands out for me, as does Shadow Over Innsmouth. Pickman's Model is very chilling, but I still can't figure out exactly why.
Hey that's a good idea. *decides to check out said artists*
Thank you for posting the link JD. I did most of my checking online. My part of the world is not a good place to be going out and about looking for the works of obscure artists; especially if they are going to be doing this sort of thing.
Likely to be banned or have the pages ripped out to save society's sensibilities if such books exist at all.
