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.
