Editorial Reviews

Internet Book Watch
Arkham House, a Wisconsin-based small press founded by the late August Derleth and dedicated to the H.P. Lovecraft literary fantasy legacy, celebrated it's 60th year in 1999 with the publication of Arkham's Masters Of Horror. This impressive compendium features work drawn from the first 30 years of Arkham's publications and represents contributions of such horror fantasy icons as H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, Donald Wandrei, Frank Belknap Long, John Ramsey Campbell, August Derleth, and a host of others. Arkham's Masters Of Horror is superbly presented testament to a literary legacy that will admirably serve to introduce a whole new generation of readers to some of yesteryear's greatest literary voices whose work influenced and shaped an entire genre.
