Being new to the actual stories of HP Lovecraft I just read Celephais for the first time.  Wow, the great man in poetic mode!

What a beautiful story, and a surprising one at that.  The common perception of Lovecraft, and I confess to previously falling into this category myself, is that he wrote dark, dense tales of horror and madness.  Well, this had madness for sure, but in a moving story.  Yes, it ended in death but a poetic and rather touching ending nonetheless.

Great stuff.
