Lovecraft At Last: The Master of Horror In His Own Words

H. P. Lovecraft; Willis Conover
Cooper Square, New York, 2002
Hardcover.

Very Good Condition.

H.P. Lovecraft was a complex figure. He died young, in poverty, and was only acclaimed a master of horror writing after his death. His writing went on to inspire Stephen King, Joyce Carol Oates and others to acclaim him the greatest practitioner of the horror tale in the 20th century. But deeper digging into his life and work reveals deep philosophical complexity, as well as trenchant racism and classism. In this collection of correspondence between Lovecraft and his friend Willis Conover, a broadcaster and jazz producer, Lovecraft the man finally comes through. With an introduction by S.T. Joshi and foreword by Harold Taylor, this is the most comprehensive answer yet to the question, who is H.P. Lovecraft?
