Nothing from Clark Ashton Smith one of Lovecraft's contemporaries shame on you

Austin Muir says:

"A Song for the Void" is a very good lovecraftian tale. It's got madness, isolation, forbidden knowledge, and cosmic beings. Must read!

Dustin Barlow says:

Check out The

Twisted Ones by T.Kingfisher (woman cleaning out her recently dead grandparents house finds a journal from her grandfather talking about the appearance of these malevolent stonehenge type stone structures and the creatures that are drawn to them, Great Atmosphere and tension building)

Abomination by Gary Whitta, (Taking place in the era of the Vikings invasion of England in the 800's. Horrific eldritch abomination type creatures began to appear and drove the Vikings to try to make a new home in England. It sort of reminded me of Resistance Fall of Man but taking place in the 800's)

The Arkham Horror series (Wrath of N'Kai is the most recent) and

The Warhammer Horror series. My favorite is the House of Night and Chain. An WH40K Lord General enters retirement and the taking up of his post as Planetary Governor for a backwater planet. When he arrives he finds most of the planet empty, and the people that are their are either insane, or acting like they are hiding a terrible secret. YOU MUST READ THIS ONE! I never knew Warhammer could have such a great Horror novel.

Some of the best Lovecraftian horror

And the real reason del Torro didn't get his movie budget was first and foremost; the movie company taking to long; and then the movie prometheus happened, which follows a similar plot.

But there's still a chance for del Torro to get to make the movie.

Deth Wilson says:

Stephen King's Revival, though not entirely cosmic horror, it took many nods from the great early horror writers [Shelley, Lovecraft, Stoker, Derleth, plus many others] only to create a world that has haunted me for years since reading it. the ending was what tied it back together to its Lovecraftian roots.

Felipe Pernambuco says:
