I enjoy the verbose and elevated use of words Lovecraft is inclined to employ. I'm hoping to read other authors who have a similar style, especially when such a technique is used to create strong visual or emotional impact.

Is there any recommendations?

  • Hi and welcome to Writers. Unfortunately, this is more of a question for readers. You might try over on Literature SE, though I am not sure if they accept requests for author recommendations either. – user16226 Aug 5 '17 at 10:47
  • Unfortunately recommendations are off-topic on Literature as well. I think this is more of a chatroom/forum question than something that will work here. Placing this on hold. – Neil Fein Aug 7 '17 at 4:29

Some of HPL's influences are Robert W. Chambers, Arthur Machen, and Lord Dunsany. That should get you started.
