5 of Rick Lai’s favorite Lovecraftian short stories

Welcome to the third entry in this series!

Recently, I asked Lovecraftian authors, editors, and reviewers to send me a list of five of their favorite Lovecraftian short stories.  The results have been very interesting!

Note this is not a “Top Five” list, just a list of five favorites.

This week, author Rick Lai gives us his list:

Previous lists: Laird BarronMike Davis

Next week: John Langan’s list!

(BONUS: A wonderful reading of The Valley of the Lost, by Robert E. Howard.)

  1. I agree these are some of the best. I first read K.E. Wagner’s Sticks in the early 1980’s and it’s haunted me ever since. Excellent story. One of my favorites, for sure.
    Howard’s The Valley of the Lost, I read even earlier. Always a fan of his work.
    Bloch’s story, I read in the 90’s and found it chilling. Ramsey Campbell, it was as a library book, and anyone familiar with his work will find this a gem…the only one I haven’t read in the list is The Worm of Urakhu; but I read all three of the original Dune stories back in the ’70s and ’80s.
