Product description

Review

'Lovecraft is the 20th century's greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale.' --Stephen King

'You need to read him, he's where the darkness starts.' --Neil Gaiman

'A wonderful book. The writing is informative and elegant and it's obvious that Paul Roland is a huge fan.' --Eamonn Murphy, SFcrowsnest.com

'The Curious Case of H.P. Lovecraft not only pays homage to previous publications but offers itself as a unique volume that will stand tall on its own…it will be a prized volume on our shelf. The contents are well sourced, has a brilliantly written narrative and extensive material in the Appendices.' --Comfychairzine.com

Overall, Roland's biography provides a solid introduction for those who want to deepen their appreciation of Lovecraft and his contributions to weird fiction. --Sean Eaton, the R'lyeh Tribune

'A keenly written insight into the life of one of the most recognised names in fiction...intelligent, informative analysis of many of Lovecraft s stories...The Curious Case of H.P. Lovecraft is a must read.' --John Townsend, Starburst Magazine
