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.
Thanks, I was looking at some of his books at the local Chapters, and I've been wanting to get into it for a while, though admittedly, I've also got University, and plenty of other books to read first.
