Pessoa is what happens when you gaze into the abyss and it breaks you. Lovecraft is what happens when you gaze into the abyss and call it a nigger.

Horror novels suck, the fact that so many people enjoy these "books" really goes to show how brainless most people are.
Books like "Dracula" are laughably trite, just silly stories for overgrown children. The goal of a horror novel is only to be "scary" and nothing else, if they are not "scary" (which they never are) then they have failed. Whenever someone tries to convince me of a certain horror novel's quality, I read it and laugh hysterically and make jokes throughout, books like the exorcist that are supposed to be scary, make me laugh more than any comedy ever could, its all just so ridiculous to me!! How anyone could take any of this seriously is beyond me.

Don't get me started on gory trash like the nonsense Steven King writes. I've never read any of them and I simply refuse to, they are just sick amusement for the mentally depraved and offer no storylines or characters, just an assembly line of butchery for the sick minded to enjoy.

If you want TRUE horror, I would turn to the world of real literature. The most terrifying tales ever conceived can be found in the works of one H.P Lovecraft. He is a lesser known writer, when compared to the likes of Poe or King, but his stories are truly nightmarish. He writes of elder gods who secretly control the human race from strange worlds and he touches on loftier themes like humanity's place in the universe as well as madness. Lovecraft rejects silly notions of religion and supplants them with true literary might. He has created a vast pantheon of horrifying gods and monsters that intertwine and cross over in his stories, think of it like the MCU, but for horror (trust me, it's so cool).

To me, lovecraftian horror is the ONLY TRUE horror, everything else is a mere bedtime story fit only for children. If you want to know where to start with his works, I recommend heading over to the r/lovecraft subreddit where they have extensive philosophical discussions.

If I'm having horror, make mine lovecraftian.

Why aren’t there more diverse and anti racist Lovecraftian stories to destroy and deconstruct his bigoted worldview?

Only Lovecraft Country really tries

I like the idea of him seething at “inferiors” taking his works and making them better

When, long ago, the gods created Earth
In Jove's fair image Man was shap'd at birth.
The beasts for lesser parts were next design'd;
Yet were they too remote from humankind.
To fill the gap, and join the rest to man,
Th'Olympian host conceiv'd a clever plan.
A beast they wrought, in semi-human figure,
Fill'd it with vice, and call'd the thing a......

What does /lit/ think of HP Lovecraft?
>Considered ridiculously racist even by the standards of the time
>Thought all cultures are worthless except English and American, which was a barely acceptable second-rate knockoff
>Hated all of other people, especially French Canadians
>Hated Nazis and KKK for hating minorities for the wrong reasons
>Learned he was part Welsh, immediately wrote a story about a man learning he was part fish
>Wrote a story about an evil witch turning people into snakes where the plot twist is just that she's a light-skinned black who can pass for white
>Considered Irish to not be fully human, was vague about their other half

I was watching this documentary about HP Lovecraft

https://youtu.be/FUFnNx0fSm0

And it covered the theory that he was actually transgender and in denial. As detailed by how he called himself a girl when he was young and wore girls clothes for years, and when older absolutely hated how he looked

Could this transgenderism be one of the defining facets that led to her works featuring so much fear of the unknown?
