His mature work hinges not so much on the Yog-Sothoths and Nyarlathoteps as on a dark and yet deeply rationalistic view of the universe as a vast place containing beings with powers and plans beyond our ken.

The horror elements play upon the ideas of the unknown and the unknowable in a way that's cool if you're into Lovecraft, but also comes off as a bit obvious; the number of times that reference to immeasurable and unimaginable space, so as to overwhelm the reader with uncertainty, is a bit overplayed. The references to Alhazred -- Lovecraft's author of the Necronomicon -- are cool, and the story is enjoyable, but it does have a kind of predictable style to it.
Lovecraft is his own niche of the horror genre, yet I feel it is most accurate to say that this story is campy in a very Lovecraftian way -- almost as though he simply wrote the story on the fly recycling techniques he had deployed in his other works. It's a bizarre and brief tale founded on a singular clever plot point, which is one of the things that Lovecraft does best. The idea of an alchemist living for years in order to maintain the curse he had placed on a family also warrants some contemplation; this story has a revenge that seems to dwarf any other curse upon a house.
Simply is a Lovecraft book. Do i need to say more?

Lovecraft's major inspiration and invention was cosmic horror: life is incomprehensible to human minds and the universe is fundamentally alien. Those who genuinely reason, like his protagonists, gamble with sanity.

Lovecraft has developed a cult following for his Cthulhu Mythos, a series of loosely interconnected fictions featuring a pantheon of human-nullifying entities, as well as the Necronomicon, a fictional grimoire of magical rites and forbidden lore.
