H. P. Lovecraft: Master of Weird Fiction by William Schoell

The dark tales of H.P. Lovecraft have influenced many of today's famous writers, including Stephen King and Joyce Carol Oates, yet during his short life, Lovecraft himself did not enjoy fame. Instead, he lived quietly in his hometown of Providence, Rhode Island, where he wrote macabre stories, poems, literary criticism and essays. His stories were published in cheap pulp magazines, and after his death in 1937, his fiction was collected in a few volumes. In H.P. Lovecraft: Master of Weird Fiction, William Schoell recaptures this American writer for a new generation of readers.
