I'm a huge H.P. Lovecraft fan. I've read a number of his stories and I'm currently making my way through his complete works (tor.com conveniently put together his complete works as a free download for Kindle). Unfortunately, I don't feel like I've read enough of his stories to pick a favorite, but I've enjoyed everything I've read so far. They're presented in order of publication and that's how I'm reading through them, but I'm itching to get to At the Mountains of Madness
(grrr...it's near the end). I think hearing about that story was the reason I got interested in reading Lovecraft in the first place.
On an unrelated note, I have a Cthulhu plush toy that sits next to my pillow while I sleep. I love being a nerd.
