"There are several biographies of love kraft out there perhaps s t joe she's too volume edition of hp love graft a life i guess could be described as the most encyclopedic reference volume for biographical material on the author but i think pools works very accessible and detailed take on what certainly a complicated story if you're unfamiliar with love crafts writing it can be a daunting challenging task to take on but if you're a fan of his work you may find that learning about the writer is itself a daunting task pool does an excellent job of throwing light on the entire quivering mass of love grants body as it lies they are on the threshold of the library he doesn't shy away from the disgusting bits and he doesn't lose sight of the simple truth at every real person is a complex mixture of good and bad and love kraft is definitely no exception but why is love kraft import enough to get a special episode because he is influenced american horror in immeasurable ways a recurring theme a monster talk is our discussion of where did that idea come from love crafts fiction is inspired millions of people to take up pins and right some of written direct copies of his style and others have taken bits of influence from here and there and love kraft himself was synthesizing elements from yet other riders and perhaps his greatest mark on the world is not the words he himself wrote but the millions of words he inspired that remains to be seen but his influence our writers like robber block stephen king iran's the campbell and films like the evil dead john carpenters the thing the tv show stranger things heavy metal bans including black sabbath roleplaying games and board games and more video games i can even begin to name this is a kind of creeping intact killer cultural aura of influence that eerily appropriate considering the nature of the old man's writing.
