In his lifetime, Lovecraft’s work gained little attention. He worked ceaselessly, spending his days and nights writing stories with layered and complicated prose, and he was paid a pittance to rewrite the fiction of others. On top of that, he spent many hours each day writing letters to fans and favorite correspondents. Estimates are that he wrote a staggering 80,000 letters in his lifetime.Writers write what they know, and modern horror writers can thank Lovecraft for bringing that into his work.
When he wasn’t writing, Lovecraft was known for taking long walks. His fiction, full of high-styled descriptions based on many Providence places, shows that he must have been looking and thinking hard on those rambles.
