Great news for H. P. Lovecraft fans!

Courtesy of a link at Dark Roasted Blend, we learn that fans of H. P. Lovecraft can now download a free copy of his collected works in formats for Kindle, Nook or Adobe Acrobat Reader.  Provider 'Cthulhu Chick' explains:

I started this project because I couldn’t find a free or inexpensive (or expensive) EPUB eBook of Lovecraft’s complete works for my Nook. Many compilations or standalone stories exist, but as you can see from the table of contents list below, there are a lot of these stories and having them in individual files would be a bit of an organizational nightmare.

The Complete Works of H.P. Lovecraft contains all the original stories which Lovecraft wrote as an adult. It begins in 1917 with “The Tomb” and ends in 1935 with his last original work “The Haunter of the Dark.” The book is ordered chronologically by the date the story was written. Because Lovecraft was a terrible businessman and left no heirs to his intellectual property, all of his works are already in the public domain. I did not include collaborations or revisions because some of those works may still be under the co-author’s copyright.

There's more at the link.  Kudos to the lady for producing a very useful resource.  I have one burning question for her, however . . . with an online persona like 'Cthulhu Chick', does she find that prospective partners run screaming from her presence?
