There's more to Lovecraftian horror than just tentacles and monsters lads.
It's about the build up and the feeling of being tiny.

Sunless Sea

Concept is this:
>1800s Queen of England wants to save her dying lover
>Makes a deal with Satan
>Horde of Bats steals London and drops it in a lightless underground cavern filled with water and sea monsters.
>Londoners fight a war with hell. Londoners lose.
>Years pass. Humans make a tunnel back to the surface.
>Comes up in Italy. Nobody believes tales of the Zee.
>Londoners get sick if they stay on the surface too long.

>You are a Zee Captain with your own steam trawler.
>Go make a life for yourself.

>and subtle racist themes
oh fuck off
>>
>>6910034
There were the occasional racist bits - mostly to do with islanders or black cults deep in the southern US swamps.
I don't think it was him being particularly racist though. Just easy subjects to work with. People that Europeans and Yankees wouldn't really know anything about.
The major overlying theme of Lovecraftian horror is helplessness and insignificance. In his stories people tend to just go mad from exposure to the horrors in the void, or they die in entirely anticlimactic ways.
Tentacle monsters only make up a fraction of the mythos. They're just the most fun to talk about.
>>
>>6910065

He's right. Lovecraft was not subtle at all about his hate of chinamen and the blacks invading Red Hook.
>>
>>6910065
But that true, the abscence of a lovecraftinian cult, in /pol/ is the proof that they can't read.
>>
>>6910092
Why the hell would /pol/ be discussing lovecraft? I feel like you are more likely to find that in /lit/ and then the occasional /pol/tard commenting on it saying "he hated niggers, wow so redpilled"

This is gonna be a little long, but I hope someone enjoys it.

Young Lovecraft's views were a lot like Ben Franklin.
He feared foreigners would overtake Englishmen and replace English with a new universal language. He thought Asians would eventually rule the world.
However, Lovecraft was also poor throughout most his life. While he starved in New York, a place he grew to hate more than any other, his wife sent him a small allowance.

As a poor man in New York, Lovecraft worked as a clerk in a few places. However, he grew to hate immigrants of all colors and nations because he believed they were taking jobs from him.
After he told his wife he filed for divorce (he actually didn't even until his death) he received an offer to become editor of Weird Tales magazine. Unfortunately, because Lovecraft was Lovecraft, he refused the offer because it required him moving to Chicago.

Well...he was later contacted by a Jewish man using the stage name Harry Houdini. Houdini thought Lovecraft was brilliant and hired him to ghostwrite books on debunking the seance room and other spiritualism. Then, following one of Houdini's biggest marketing gimmicks, a random man punched Houdini in the gut, killing him instantly.

Working with Houdini nuanced a lot of Lovecraft's racism. He focused more on rich and poor. As Steinbeck would say, Lovecraft saw himself as a temporarily embarrassed millionaire. In spite of that, Lovecraft was especially opposed to blacks throughout his life, both in his personal letters and in his writing.

I'm sure someone will come along to correct points of this, but that's a brief overview.

You forgot to mention that his wife was also Jewish.
