This review is from: The Cthulhu Mythos Encyclopedia: A Guide to H. P. Lovecraft's Universe (Paperback)
As you'd expect from Harms, this is both literate and passionate about the subject. It's mostly based on the fiction, but there's a fair degree of inclusiveness when it comes to Call of Cthulhu games and some of the Delta Green stuff too. Mostly it's written "in universe", so in this sense, it isn't literary criticism in the same way as Joshi surveys the subject; but on the other hand, unlike Joshi, there isn't any intellectual arrogance on the part of the author or dislike of the pop culture popularity of the Mythos itself.
