Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937) was the author of many short stories and the father of cosmicism. He wrote about a universe that is utterly meaningless and the cosmic horrors that live therein. He is considered the greatest writer of horror to live in the age after Poe and before Stephen King.
Tentacles? Forbidden knowledge? Esoteric cults? You must be reading an H. P. Lovecraft story.

One of the most brilliant minds in literature of all time. H.P. Lovecraft's work can be categorized as horror, Gothic, fantasy, and mystery. With influences by the captivating and mysterious work of the artist, Sidney H. Sime and the ethereal dream-worlds of the author, Lord Dunsany, H.P. Lovecraft's work is the epitome of great Gothic literature. Some of his works include Dagon, The Shadow Over Innsmouth, The Cats of Ulthar, The Doom That Came to Sarnath, At the Mountains of Madness, The Thing on the Doorstep, and the infamous The Call of Cthulhu. Lovecraft's stories continue to spark the imaginations of authors today. There are countless modern Cthulhu Mythos and movies based on his stories. But nothing can come close to the original work of H.P. Lovecraft.
H.P. Lovecraft was a genius

Perfectly dreadful writer, considered the father of gothic horror stories. Has good ideas, but also has a fascination with long, pointless adjecties and hyperbole. Best known for the short story Call of Cthulhu among other things.
H. P. Lovecraft's writing is so predictable that even the worst translator can translate it from English to Russian to French to English and have it come out exactly like the original!
