Version 5 is now available with numerous corrections and some nicer looking formatting.

Enjoy!

I must have downloaded the complete works and collaborations of Lovecraft somewhere around here and I kindly thank the uploader.
However, as I am currently reading it, I noticed how the texts are all in British English. Lovecraft is if I am not mistaken (or rather was) an American author so did he write using the British spelling or was it changed to British spelling for whatever reason ?

I guess he used British spelling (and many oldish and Latin-influenced words) deliberately. Have a look here, it says:

Take a gulp any time that Lovecraft: [...] uses the "British" spelling of any word, such as "colour" or "favour".

Yes it does seem a bit odd, and I queried it myself when I started creating these volumes.

As Jellby says, he used a lot of British English and I'm trying to do the same and use British English versions as my source copy for these.

If any of his works ended up with American English as the original version, then I'll modify mine to match. Until then, it British English in these books.

A remarkable contribution. It has changed my opinion of H. P. Lovecraft for the better. And the truth is, not being a fan of this particular genre, I probably never would have bothered buying a printed version! I am looking forward to reading the other three volumes (Essays, Poetry, Juvenilia).

As to checking Lovecraft's original spelling as discussed above, my impression is that none of this material was ever published in book form during the author's lifetime... just cheap magazines, so that even if you managed to get a hold of copies of any of those... the spelling would probably just reflect the editor's personal choice (or his secretary's) and what his readers would have expected... not very reliable... For authenticity's sake I suppose you would need access to the author's manuscripts—either typed or handwritten...?

I just recommended ghostyjack's versions of Lovecraft yet again -- in this case, to a friend at work -- as I've done whenever anyone has asked which free version to get. Sterling work, in my incredibly humble opinion.

Hi guys.

Thanks for the support on this, it's gratifying to know that people still like my books.

I must apologise to Jellby, as he gave me a list of corrections and tidy-up tips well over a year ago and I have yet to release an updated version. Sorry.

I started a new job at the end of last year and I now have to travel to work to a different city every day by train, by the time I get home it is very late and I never want to get on my PC, also the weekend is now when I rest as work is hard, tiring and stressful. This all means that I rarely get time to work on my books or even get on the web, so I've been absent from here for most of the year.

I'm on leave today, hence why I've been able to jump on the PC and check out the site and seen these comments.

I'm hoping to get new versions of all my Lovecraft out soon with Jellby's comments. I'm also looking to restructure the layout of them and will probably put them all into publication or when-written order.

I'm also thinking on having new covers for them, but as I'm not much good with graphical design, so that may not happen.

I'm also going to start to look to see if any more of the stories have any graphics in them and see if I can find them and get them included as well.

Once all this is done, unless anyone finds missing material or any corrections, I'll consider these finished and then get back to doing my Jack London books.

Sounds like you're pretty busy ghostlyjack. I'm sure we all appreciate the work that you do in fact find the time to do on books that you've uploaded.
