Due to the effort involved in making a list of all the characters in Lovecraft’s works, we
haven’t created our own list just yet. However, there are guides of this sort already
available on the web, which are listed below. In addition to these, good glossaries of Lovecraft
characters include “An Encyclopedia of Characters and Monsters” in Philip A.
Shreffler’s The H.P. Lovecraft Companion as well as Daniel Harms’ Encyclopedia
- The Cthulhu Lexicon
(Jim Hawley): This lexicon includes references to “people, places, creatures, and
artifacts identified in the many stories of H.P. Lovecraft” as well as other stories
considered to be part of the “Cthulhu Mythos.” These pages are part of Jim’s The NetherReal.
- The Cthulhu Mythos:
A Guide (Joseph F. Morales): This guide lists people, places, creatures, books, and
so on, mentioned in those stories written by “the first generation of ‘Cthulhu
Mythos’ writers.” These writers include H.P. Lovecraft, Robert Bloch, August Derleth,
Robert E. Howard, Henry Kuttner, Frank Belknap Long, Duane W. Rimel, Richard F. Searight, J. Vernon
Shea, and Clark Ashton Smith.
