Supernatural Horror in Literature: A Pulp-Lit Annotated Edition by H. P. Lovecraft, Finn J.D. John

From the Master of Cosmic Horror …

Supernatural Horror in Literature, H.P. Lovecraft’s “master’s thesis,” is a tour de force of literary analysis, tracing the origins of the horror genre back to its inception and beyond. In it, Lovecraft follows the development of horror-lit down through the centuries—from Horace Walpole, through Mary Wollstonecraft and Bram Stoker, to Algernon Blackwood and Arthur Machen, and on into his own time.

About the Author

Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937), commonly known as H. P. Lovecraft, was an American author known for his works of horror fiction (many of which have been adapted into movies). Having died in obscure poverty, he achieved posthumous fame for his books and stories. Today, he is best known for his take on The Call of Cthulhu. Because of his influence on contemporary writers and the development of his unique style known as "Lovecraftian," he is often compared to Edgar Allan Poe.
