Howard Phillips Lovecraft was an American author who achieved posthumous fame through his influential works of horror fiction.

He also used the pseudonyms Lewis Theobald, Jun., Humphrey Littlewit, Esq., Ward Phillips, Percy Simple, Henry Paget-Lowe, and Edward Softly.

He has also been credited as J. H. Brownlow (Canadian Weird Tales, September 1945).
