The Complete Works of Lovecraft eBook Now in PDF

A while back, I released a complete works of H.P. Lovecraft eBook in EPUB and Kindle formats. While that works for most people, some had asked for a PDF copy for their computers or other devices. Creating the PDF wasn’t a priority (the stories are all available online and the two version I’ve created can be read on nearly every device, including computers), but it was still something I wanted to get around to. So last weekend, I got it put together.

You can download the PDF here. I’ve set it as a download vs. opening in a browser because it’s a large enough file that it may slow down your browser while loading. Should you want it in your browser or need to download it by right-clicking and saving the link for some reason, try this link instead. The text is the same as the other ebooks. It has a linked table of contents and “Return to Table of Contents” links following each story.

If you have an e-Reader or want to read it on your smartphone, I strongly recommend downloading the EPUB or the MOBI versions instead. The formatting looks fine on a computer and would probably look fine on a tablet, but PDFs simply don’t look as good on e-Readers/phones as EPUBs/MOBIs do. Since the file is about 6x as large as the other ebooks, this also puts more strain on my server. I’m hoping that won’t be an issue—otherwise I’ll have to host the download elsewhere.

As with the other eBook, this is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 Unported (CC BY-NC 3.0) (a formalization of the request I initially made, merely putting it into legal terms). The book may be redistributed, torn apart, revised, etc, but please do not sell it. Uploading on your own site for download is fine. If you choose to share or redistribute the book, please give credit to arkhamarchivist.com. Basically, you can do anything with it but sell it.

Hope you enjoy!

    Fantastic as this is, how can you call it complete without Fungi from Yuggoth, or any of his other poems?

  2. Hi there, are you able to recommend any good cheap pdfhosting sites? Best of luck

    Thanks isn’t enough, but it is all I have to offer.

    Hi — I’ve been wanting to read Lovecraft for a while now, so I wanted to say “thanks” for putting together the ebook so nicely. Too many public domain books are slapped together and sold on Amazon for a quick buck — it’s nice to see that you took the time to make a quality product.

    I’ll probably download the free copies from here so I don’t have the DRM, but I paid for it on Amazon so you’ll get a bit of $. Thanks again!

    Also — any plans to do the remainder of his stuff — the collaborations? Not sure I’ll get that far — I have yet to see if I’ll like Lovecraft or not ;-) — but it’s nice to know for down the road.

    I just wanted to say thanks a lot for this freebie! I’ve never read any Lovecraft before, but have been aware of him for a good few years thanks to a couple of stories by my favourite writer, Jorge Luis Borges, who acknowledged a debt to him. I’ve just downloaded the Kindle version after finding it whilst browsing Amazon’s store, and am looking forward to it!

  6. Richard Hills says:

    Thank you for putting these together; it is very convenient to have these stories in a form I can read on my phone. Hope you get some kind of payout from Amazon as that’s where bought the collection.

  7. Waaaay Cool! Something more easy to read on the way, instead of Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations :-) Thanks!

  8. Scott D. Smith says:

    Thanks so much! We can’t get any Lovecraft in the local library.

  9. Anthony says:

    Many thanks! I’ve been searching for a complete collection for some time, ^_^

  10. Jynto says:

    Thank you so much for this.

  11. Azolin says:

    Thanks a lot! :)

    Thanks for putting this together, Lovecraft was my favorite author years ago and I am looking forward to more nights of wondering what those unknown sounds really are. Some of his imagery has stayed with me for 40 years and I really appreciate your time and effort.

  13. Shashank says:

    Thanks a million!

  14. Candida F says:

    Thank you so much!!! I’ve been looking for these all my life!!!! You’re so kind!!! :D

  15. RD Juggler says:

    Thank you so much! It’s not enough that fans should own only physical copies of beloved works. It is such a cursed shame that Mr. Lovecraft never realized the full effect of his efforts during his lifetime.
    As long as the creations of man are made known in this digital age, they are able to be preserved indefinitely. I hope that someday in the future humanity would find a way to preserve information for guaranteed eternity. Thank you for taking part in such a global endeavor.

    I’m actually having trouble with each of your links through my galaxy, I’ll try on my tablet once I get a new charger for it. Also, I initially heard of you through a review on Kindle for your compilation of Lovecraft’s works; they’re charging to download

  17. Seth says:

    OMG!!! I’m thrilled. I was thinking I was going to have to have to compile a complete works myself. Very beautiful work. Thank you heaps.

  18. Alamo says:

    Soooooooo GREAT WORK!

    Thankssssssssssssssssssssss a lot.

  19. Captain NedD says:

    Thanks so much. I greatly appreciate your effort.

    My only exposure to Lovecraft so far has been a couple of audio plays I like to listen in the car.

    Now, in winter, I can park myself in front of the fire and read for a _long_ time.

  20. Fernando says:

    Wow. Thank you very, very much!

  21. Angela says:

    Thanks for this! I’ve only read a few of the stories, so this is a treasure trove.

  22. John Caraballo says:

    Thank you for finally giving me something good worth reading. I appreciate your hard work in making Lovecraft’s work available to all. I am an avid admirer of Lovecraft’s work and this pdf. has certainly made my day. Thank you very much Cthulhu Chick. :-)

  23. Blipse says:

    Hey, excellent work! Much appreciated.
    I was just wondering, why is the story “under the pyramids” not included in this collection?
