Black Wings of Cthulhu: Tales of Lovecraftian Horror, Volumes 1-3, edited by S.T. Joshi: Joshi is arguably the most prominent scholar of Lovecraftian fiction, and, according to Ellen Datlow (another excellent horror editor), “the nastiest reviewer in the field”.  While this may or may not be the case, Joshi has one of the most discerning eyes for horror I’ve ever encountered, so any book with his stamp of approval automatically goes on my list.  This was one of the first mythos books I read, and it remains one of my favorites.

Fear of the Unknown: A 2009 documentary about the life and creations of H.P. Lovecraft, available here if you want to watch it properly and here if you are poor and just wish to view it for free on Youtube.  People who have more than a passing familiarity with Lovecraft might not find it groundbreaking: however, I would definitely watch it anyway.  They interview a lot of amazing mythos authors (Caitlin R. Kiernan! S.T. Joshi!  Neil Gaimain!) and a lot of big shots from the popular horror world, and it really does tell an fantastic story.
