BPD Game 2 Round 8

It's BPD 2 Round 8! Only 2 more!

Continuing with our Literature themed game, we arrive at (finally) the H.P. Lovecraft round! Howard Phillips Lovecraft (August 20, 1890 – March 15, 1937) was an American author of fantasy, horror and science fiction, noted for combining these three genres within single narratives. Lovecraft's readership was limited during his life, but his works have become very important and influential among writers and fans of modern horror fiction. He has become a cult figure in the horror genre and is noted as creator of the Cthulhu Mythos as well as the famed Necronomicon.

Round 8 will focus on this incredibly prolfic writer. ALMOST EVERYTHING WRITTEN BY HP LOVECRAFT is in public domain, and up on the web somewhere. It's your job to match the category item to the secret word. As always, I'll accept a first or last name if you are citing a person, and a secret letter word buried in a title.

The Secret Letter is R

Category 1: Someone featured in a poem by HPL

Category 2: One of HPL's many invented place-names

Category 3: The name of a human protaganist in any novel

Category 4: The name of a character that loses his or her sanity through the course of the narrative

Category 5: A real life person of consequence in HPL's life

Category 6: The title of any movie derived from a HPL story

Good luck!
