Howard Lovecraft

Howard Phillips Lovecraft was an American author who achieved posthumous fame through his influential works of horror fiction. He was virtually unknown and published only in pulp magazines before he died in poverty, but he is now regarded as one of the most significant 20th-century authors in his genre. Lovecraft was born in Providence, Rhode Island where he spent most of his life. Among his most celebrated tales are "The Call of Cthulhu" and "The Shadow over Innsmouth", both canonical to the Cthulhu Mythos. Lovecraft was never able to support himself from earnings as author and editor. He saw commercial success increasingly elude him in this latter period, partly because he lacked the confidence and drive to promote himself. He subsisted in progressively straitened circumstances in his last years; an inheritance was completely spent by the time that he died at age 46.
years of life: 20 August 1890 15 March 1937




Jahandar Joey Wolfhas quoted2 years ago
when a vast series of raids and arrests occurred, followed by the deliberate burning and dynamiting – under suitable precautions – of an enormous number of crumbling, worm-eaten, and supposedly empty houses along the abandoned waterfront.

когда произошла обширная серия рейдов и арестов, за которыми последовали преднамеренные поджоги и взрывы – при соответствующих мерах предосторожности – огромного количества разрушенных, изъеденных червями и предположительно пустых домов вдоль заброшенной набережной.

Jahandar Joey Wolfhas quoted2 years ago
Keener news-followers, however, wondered at the prodigious number of arrests, the abnormally large force of men used in making them, and the secrecy surrounding the disposal of the prisoners.
Jahandar Joey Wolfhas quoted2 years ago
No trials, or even definite charges were reported; nor were any of the captives seen thereafter in the regular gaols of the nation. There were vague statements about disease and concentration camps, and later about dispersal in various naval and military prisons, but nothing positive ever developed.

Никаких судебных процессов или даже определенных обвинений не было сообщено; и никто из пленников не был замечен после этого в обычных тюрьмах страны. Были смутные заявления о болезнях и концентрационных лагерях, а позже о расселении по различным военно-морским и военным тюрьмам, но ничего положительного так и не появилось.

I’m having mixed feelings but the end made it worthwhile.
