Lovecraft Remembered

By Peter Cannon (editor)

Sauk City, USA: Arkham House, 1998. Lovecraft scholar Peter Cannon has gathered all the major shorter memoirs, together with some rare contemporary glimpses from the amateur press before the master fantasist made his mark in Weird Tales. Here are such classic tributes from the 1940s as W. Paul Cook's "In Memoriam," Winfield Townley Scott's "His Own Most Fantastic Creation," and R. H. Barlow's "The Wind That Is in the Grass." Later reminiscences include Kenneth Sterling's brilliant account of Lovecraft in his final years in Providence and Mara Kirk Hart's fascinating chronicle of the Kalem Club based on the letters of her father, George Kirk. Rounding off the book is a selection of early criticism, which charts the progress of Lovecraft's reputation from August Derleth's Cthulhu mythologizing to Fritz Leiber's cosmic insights. . First Edition. Hard Back. Fine/Fine. Illus. by Cover - Martin Hertzel. 8 x 5 1/2in. Biography.
