It was during his early years that he discovered Lovecraft, mainly thanks to role-playing games. Ever since, he has had a passionate interest in fantasy worlds in general, and for those created by a certain writer from Providence in particular. After dreaming for years about seeing an illustrated version of Lovecraft’s works, Baranger finally decided to create one himself, and chose the most classic short story of them all, The Call of Cthulhu.

About Howard Philips Lovecraft
H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) is one of American literature’s most influential authors. Although he achieved limited success during his lifetime, his reputation has grown over the years and he has been praised by among others Stephen King and Guillermo del Toro. Lovecraft’s cosmic horror touched on themes such as humanity’s inadequacy and the horror of the incomprehensible and indifferent universe surrounding us.His characteristic prose, heavy on adjectives, grand imagination, and his frantic storytelling technique have formed a school, and his legacy in popular culture is unprecedented. Along with Edgar Allen Poe, H.P. Lovecraft is undoubtedly one of the greatest horror writers of his time.
