This book is a necessity for anyone interested in the
history and criticism of horror fiction. Its chief problem
is its age (written c. 1925), but it provides an admirable
look at the field up until that time.

Lovecraft is often remembered for his fiction, but he was also an excellent critic. "Supernatural Horror in Literature" is a concise, clearly written (though at times verbose) critique of the supernatural in literature. Lovecraft reviews many of the major works in the supernatural field beginning with the gothic and finishing with his contemporaries. A must for anyone interested in the subject of supernatural horror or any Lovecraft devotee.

Those studying English/American literature, or simply HPL fans, will show appreciation toward the shrewd criticism awarded by the Gentleman of Providence. It is indeed useful because, given that the likes of Stephen King, William Blatty and Anne Rice were not alive at the turn of the century, more traditional authors are reviewed, such as Dickens and Bierce. Overall, and excellent resource material.
