      My personal favs are 'The Call of Cthulhu' and 'The colour out of Space'. It's a tie between these two, I really can't pick one.

      I fully agree with Mark : "The Shadow Out of Time" and "The Dreams in the Witch House,"

      I guess that I'll have to go with "The Call of Cthulhu" but "Pickman's Model" was the first Lovecraft story I ever read (at age 13, the perfect age to discover Lovecraft), so that one will always also be one of my favorites.

    5. Chris Bekofske

      So many good stories to choose from, but I'm going to have to go with "Shadow Over Innsmouth." So thematic and evocative.

    6. Arran Dickson

      I definitely have a soft spot for Herbert West - Re-animator. I know that it's not a typical Lovecraft story, but I think it's probably because my first introduction to Lovecraft was the Re-Animator film and that along with the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game made me seek out Lovecraft's works.

    7. Ronny Anderssen

      Tough choice, but I would have to choose Nyarlathotep as it's the most ultimate ominous text ever written.

      Andrew Tolputt on

      My favourite H P Lovecraft story is The Haunter of the Dark. The little snippets hinting at a much larger story and the use of "found footage" at the end make it a perfect example of eldritch horror.

    9. Bernard Cooper

      Hmmmmm..... favourite story? That's a hard one. Going to have go to with "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" for the whole becoming the monster theme. Stories where the character(s) changes into a monster (figuratively and literally) have always had an odd effect on me. Still remember getting goosebumps reading a 'Choose your own adventure' style book set in the Ravenloft D&D setting where, in one ending, the vampire baddy casts a Polymorph spell to turn and morphs you into a vampire (Seems more effort that just biting you though...). Also thinking of the Jon Pertwee Dr. Who episde, "Inferno", where they drill into the Earth's core and this primordial ooze seeps out and causes people to start devolving into Primords when it touches them.
      Also need to give a special shout-out to "The Outsider" which is the first HPL story I read.

    10. Gilbert Isla

      'The Dreams in the Witch House' is probably my favorite.

    11. Nathan Rosen on

      I'm a big fan of the underrated "Cool Air."

    12. Darin Hlavaz on

      Very partial to the Haunter of the Dark of late but have to say The Call of Cthulhu is the all-time fav.

    13. Dean Nicolson

      It's hard to pick a favourite but for its simplicity and style I always love The Statement of Randolph Carter.

      The Colour Out of Space
      Love that story.

      "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents."

      The Call of Cthulhu has my favorite opening paragraph of any story I've ever read. It perfectly sets to mood for fantastic story to follow.

    16. Kay Deveroux on

      The Shadow Over Innsmouth

    17. Bradley West on

      Shadow Over Innsmouth. The Deep Ones are where it's at

    18. Missing avatar

      Nick Williams

      Tough to choose a favorite, but I'll go with At the Mountains of Madness.

    19. Paul Motsuk

      I'll go with "Shadow over Innsmouth."

    20. Will Hart

      H. P. Lovecraft's, "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward" went from being one of my least favorite Lovecraft tales, to now being in a tie for First Place with two others after I did my recording of it for my CthulhuWho1 blog and YouTube. Lovecraft's words on paper are just the script for live readings of his works, and they come alive for the reader and audience when read or performed. There is a Gateway to readings of Lovecraft's works on my blog, and I invite everyone to take advantage of it.

      Dafydd Nicklin on

      'The Dreams in the Witch House' is my favorite, and also one that deserves more recognition than it usually gets. A nice combination of early S/F and horror.

    22. Chris Morey 4-time creator on

      Thanks to everyone who has commented so far. We will be sending out the free ebook after the giveaway closes on June 9th all at once to everyone who shares their favorite Lovecraft story here in the comments. Please encourage friends to join in!

      My favorite has to be "The Dunwich Horror." I find it to be a very well-crafted and effective horror story. Also a fan of "At the Mountains of Madness" particularly because I'm a sucker for snowy/arctic settings in horror stories (and penguins!).

    23. Paul Freelend on

      This will betray some of my biases, but I've always liked The Music of Erich Zann.

    24. Jason Smith on

      Gonna have to go with The Call of Cthulhu. Just really covers all the major reasons I enjoy Lovecraft's work as well.

    25. Missing avatar

      Darrell Grizzle on

      My favorite Lovecraft story is The Cats of Ulthar.

    26. Johann on

      The Colour Out of Space is my absolute favourite.

      Oliver D. Dickerson III

      The Call of Cthulhu Radio play version

    28. Lisa Kruse

      The Temple has always been one of my favorites

    29. Mark L

      Several of my favorites have already been mentioned, so I'll go with the less-often mentioned "The Shadow Out of Time" and "The Dreams in the Witch House," neither one of which gets the credit they deserve, in my opinion.

      "The Nameless City" has always drawn my imagination to lost places.

      Luis Roco on

      It's very difficult for me to choose just one story or novel as the HPL best one, but I will chose "The Dunwich Horror". It's a short story that includes many of the elements that define the Cthulhu mythos: the Necronomicon, the Elder Gods and cosmical horrors.

    33. Kevin Miller on

      My favorite Lovecraft tale has always been the first story of his that I ever read: The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath. This novella has the added significance, for me, of featuring my favorite Lovecraftian creatures as well, the night-gaunts.

    34. Ajay Sims on

      I've been a massive H.P.Lovecraft fan for years the first book I read by him was At the Mountains of Madness and Ive been hooked by his works and any Cthulhu mythos books and related games

    35. Mike Nusbaum

      I've been a HPL fan since I was probably around 15-16 years old. That's about 30 years ago now. My personal favorite is Shadow over Innsmouth because I love the insidious taking over of a small town by the Deep Ones.

    36. Kevin J. Maroney

      I've always loved the ending of "The Shadow over Innsmouth", and I admire the sweep and invention of both "The Shadow out of Time" and "At the Mountains of Madness", but I have to go with the thematic unity of "The Call of Cthulhu". Really, almost everything Lovecraft had to say is said there, better than anywhere else.

    37. Runepriest on

      The Color Out of Space

    38. Jim B.

      Pickman's Model

    39. David South on

      I'll start this party! My favorite story by Lovecraft is a little-known one called From Beyond, which is a great combination of sci-fi, cosmic horror and murder. It does a great job describing truly novel creatures that exist in the world and the spaces beyond, but we cant quite see with our normal senses.
