The Outsider and Others is a collection of stories by author H.P. Lovecraft. It was released in 1939 and was the first book published by Arkham House. It went out of print early in 1944 and has never been reprinted.

The volume takes its name from the Lovecraft short story "The Outsider (fiction)"; The Outsider and Other Stories was Lovecraft's preferred title for a short story collection considered, but never issued, by Farnsworth Wright. The stories for this volume were selected by August Derleth and Donald Wandrei. The dust jacket art was a montage of drawings by Virgil Finlay for Weird Tales magazine, of which only one or two had originally illustrated Lovecraft stories.
