The premise of our discussion is, as Lovecraft's experience and confidence grew in his writing, the length of his stories also grew (cite: Alexplorer's Halloween Page).

I will provide a chronological list, including publication dates (or written if unpublished in his lifetime) and words counts, of Lovecraft's solo fiction:
