Cats And Dogs by H. P. Lovecraft

P. Lovecraft Written November 23, 1926 Published in Something About Cats and Other Pieces, Arkham House, 1949 Being told of the cat-and-dog fight about to occur in your literary club, I cannot resist contributing a few Thomastic yowls and sibilants upon my side of the dispute, though conscious that the word of a venerable ex-member can scarcely have much weight against the brilliancy of such still active adherents as may bark upon the other side. Between dogs and cats my degree of choice is so great that it would never occur to me to compare the two. Naturally, one's preference in the matter of cats and dogs depends wholly upon one's temperament and point of view. Persons of commonplace ideas -- unimaginative worthy burghers who are satisfied with the daily round of things and who subscribe to the popular credo of sentimental values -- will always be dog-lovers.

We may, indeed, judge the tone and bias of a civilisation by its relative attitude toward dogs and cats. Free ebooks by H.P. Lovecraft. The Shunned House. The H.P. Lovecraft Archive.

Lovecraft is now appreciated as one of the best horror stylists of the 20th century, although for years he worked in pulp obscurity, only known to a small circle of fans and fellow writers. However, he died without heirs and the bulk of his copyrights were never renewed. Hence a great amount of Lovecraft's output passed into the public domain. The following tales are currently in the public domain in the United States by the terms of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act because they were either 1) published prior to January 1st, 1923 or 2) never renewed at the US Copyright office.

Remote in the desert of Araby lies the nameless city, crumbling and inarticulate, its low walls nearly hidden by the sands of uncounted ages.

That is not dead which can eternal lie, And with strange aeons death may die. For hours I waited, till the east grew grey and the stars faded, and the grey turned to roseate light edged with gold. The Works of H.P Lovecraft - WikiSource.
