The Survivor and Others is a collection of fantasy and horror short stories by August Derleth, inspired by some of H.P. Lovecraft's notes left behind after his death. Derleth, Lovecraft's literary executor, billed himself as a "posthumous collaborator" with the other writer. All of the stories, written after Lovecraft's death in 1937, were completed by Derleth from Lovecraft's notes or outlines.
