  1. It is great to see Lovecraft as #1 — but the list is a pathetic joke. No Ligotti, no Clark Ashton Smith, no Robert Aickman. Really bad writers like John Saul and Dean Koonzt and the unreadable Richard Laymon — Great Yuggoth! Donald Wandrei, William Hope Hodgson and, among the newer gang, Laird Barron and Caitlin R. Kiernan and the amazing Joe Pulver should have been mentioned. Brian Lumley is not a good writer by any stretch of the imagination, although I like a lot of his short stories and some few of his novels. This list reeks like ichor!

  2. I agree with you that the list is not at all what I would have put together. My enjoyment is based on the fact that Lovecraft was given due credit. As much as I hate to admit it I don’t think Lovecraft should have been in the #1 spot. Personally looking at the list I would have put Poe in the #1 slot and then Lovecraft as #2… Considering Lovecraft himself was inspired by Poe it would only make sense. In my opinion.
