Dive straight in: The Outsider and Others. IIRC, it has practically every important story he ever wrote, including the novellas (towards the end).

I'm not sure if the book is actually available for sale as is, but I used its contents as a guide to read the stories off the Internet (Lovecraft is in the public domain).

Edit: Welp, it seems the book is on Amazon at a bargain price of $1,940. I'd snap it up if I were you.

There's also Wikipedia's bibliography list you can consult if you're looking to read his works chronologically and comprehensively.

Lovecraft's theme and genre never really wavers a lot, so it doesn't matter where you start, the supreme cosmic gods that slumber in dimensions unfathomable will be sure to get you either way.
