1) Howard Phillips Lovecraft
Born on August 20th, 1890 in Providence, Rhode Island. He was the only child of Winfield Scott Lovecraft and Sarah Susan Phillips Lovecraft. H.P. Lovecraft was a master of Gothic horror, fantasy, and science fiction of a most rococo variety, he is particularly noted for his many nightmarish short stories. Some of his best-known tales are part of the Cthulhu Mythos series written c.1925-35, where he invents an entire mythology of earthly origins, gods, and hideous otherworldly creatures. Much can be attributed to the work of the legendary H.P. Lovecraft, even the rediscovery of the word “Necronomicon,” a word which was communicated to Lovecraft in dreams. He was a man with many issues, but he had a clear vision of the world. He died on March 15th 1937 as the first soldier of the Necronomicon Tradition. His works have influenced artists, musicians, occultists, poets, and scholars all around the world.
2) August Derleth
Born febuary 24th 1909, was a famous American writer and anthologist. Although he is best remembered as the first publisher of H.P. Lovecraft’s writings and his own contributions to the Cthulhu Mythos, Derleth was one of the leading writers of his day. His contribution to the Necronomicon Tradition is probably one of the biggest, being the first publisher of Lovecraft’s works, as well as, introducing a good versus evil dichotomy into the Cthulhu Mythos, which may have increased Lovecraft’s fan base. Derleth was a remarkable individual overall. Derleth wrote more than 150 short stories and more than 100 books during his lifetime. He died on July 4th, 1971
