There is no shortage of Shadow stories. Walter B. Gibson was extraordinarilly prolific, supposedly writing 10,000 words per day. Probably an exaggeration, but he did write loads of Shadow stories. I am sure that a quick Amazon search will produce collections.

For Lovecraft: suggest you concentrate on his SS. Again, any of the collections you find in a basic Amazon search will do. The stories are pretty consistent, though there are a few standouts.

If you use a Kindle, there are very inexpensive, possibly free, selections of Gibson and Lovecraft.

Read on shadow novel by Gibson of which I can recall the title , but I liked . Two other I can suggest who contemporaries and equally good .

Robot Titans of Gotham by by Norvell Page. This beginning of Spider Crime Fighter novel series of which he quite a number..

The Complete Tales of Jules De Grandin by Seabury Quinn Jules De Grandin is a supernatural detective both he and his associate Dr Trowbridge investigate and do battle with the force of supernatural darkness . Between 1925 and 1951 he wrote 93 of these adventure which includes a full length novel. Nightshade books has repainted them all in 5 volumes .

Gardner started out in the Black Mask stable of writers, as I recall, so yes, there probably are pulp stories by him. Not sure about s.f./fantasy/horror stories, though.

James Patterson and Brian Sitts just came out with a Shadow Novel .

There also exists several recent novels in which the Shadow meets Doc Savage.

You can get some big and very fat hard back volumes of H.P.Lovecraft's stories, not sure if they are complete sets of his stories, or if they contain his one novel about Charles Dexter Ward, but you get a lot for your money.
There are several editions on Amazon, all very reasonably priced, I think Barnes & Noble even do one, so it's worth having a look!
