Of course. Here are some links to a site where you can read his works online.

First of all, there are his most famous works:

The Call of Cthulhu
The Shadow Over Innsmouth
The Dunwich Horror
The Colour Out Of Space

These are his most famous short stories, though "The Call of Cthulhu" and "The Dunwich Horror" edge more into the "novella" category - they're a little longer than the others.

If you have time, he wrote a short novel, At the Mountains of Madness, which you can also read online.

But my absolute favorite of his works is "The Music of Erich Zann". It's not his most famous - I'm one of the few people I know who have read it - but it's absolutely fantastic.

And if you get through those, and want to read more, MythosTomes.com has pretty much all of his works available for reading.

Enjoy!
