His second novel, The Void, is semi-Lovecraftian science fiction. It's not as good but there are some pretty creepy ideas in it.
Oh man, I really loved That Which Should Not Be - a great, fun read for the Lovecraft fans out there.

If Lovecraft is your thing, I also recommend Black Wings, an anthology of short fiction inspired by Lovecraft and edited by S. T. Joshi.

I also highly recommend Thomas Ligotti's works - Grimscribe, Noctuary and Teattro Grotesco are available in ebook format. I wish someone would publish an ebook of his first collection, Songs of a Dead Dreamer, or better yet, The Nightmare Factory, an omnibus collection of most of his short stories.

I am also really enjoying Jeff and Anne Vandermeer's massive collection, The Weird: A Compendium of Strange and Dark Stories.

Finally, Wayne Barlowe's God's Demon is a strangely beautiful and terrifying story of Hell and redemption - it maybe more properly classified as fantasy, but it has plenty of horrifying details.
