The requirement of evidence to back your claim does not disappear because it hurts your feelings, reality does not care about your feefees.

RE: Call of Cthulhu
Still trying to get round to reading some Lovecraft.

Many people recommend him to me after saying I love Poe.

Something inside me tells me I will be disappointed, that's why I'm still hesitating.

I fully endorse reading Lovecraft.

Some if it is a bit weak yes, The thing on the Doorstep, being one even Lovecraft said stunk for example.

The Rats in the Wall is by far my favorite though.

Well, every writer has his bad moments.

The problem is, I expect something like Poe. After having read everything by him, I feel I need my dose of some good horror and I can't find it anywhere Sad

I just hope it will be as bone-chilling, creepy and sick as Poe.

If it's not, I hope I will find something else in him to like.

Lovecraft is not Poe. But he is well worth reading on his own right. If you go in wanting him to be Poe you will probably be disappointed.

That's what I figured. But no, to be honest, I don't want something like Poe, I want something as good as Poe, even if it's a different style.

Lovecraft is unique, his cosmic horror stories have always fascinated me, and he was quite influential to many later writers. He even influenced D&D as is shown by the far-realm and has a direct shout-out in the Original Ravenloft Red Box.

The whole crypt from the Mountains of Madness is in the setting.

Well there is an actual Call of Cthulhu tabletop game as well.
