Faculty Favorite: Mr. Lowry


Horror. Fantasy. Science Fiction. These are a few of Mr. Lowry’s favorite genres that are all wrapped up in his favorite read: At the Mountains of Madness by H.P. Lovecraft. “Lovecraft served as the inspiration for such writers as Stephen King and Clive Barker, both considered masters of horror in the late 20th century,” says Mr. Lowry. “Lovecraft is known for seeping his stories in the genre of  ‘cosmic horror,’ and his work also incorporates aspects of science-fiction as well. I highly recommend anything written by him, but At the Mountains of Madness is my favorite,” he adds.

Synopsis from Goodreads.com

Long acknowledged as a master of nightmarish vision, H.P. Lovecraft established the genuineness and dignity of his own pioneering fiction in 1931 with his quintessential work of supernatural horror, At the Mountains of Madness. The deliberately told and increasingly chilling recollection of an Antarctic expedition’s uncanny discoveries –and their encounter with an untold menace in the ruins of a lost civilization–is a milestone of macabre literature.
