This hardcover edition was produced in VERY small numbers. “Prose nonfiction was among the earliest forms of literary expression for H. P. Lovecraft. Over the course of his career, he addressed a wide array of other topics in essays that reveal his perspicacy and his gift for language. This volume is the first in nearly 25 years to present a comprehensive selection of Lovecraft’s best and most representative essays. As he became a pioneering author of weird fiction, Lovecraft assessed the foundations of his chosen genre in such essays as “Notes on Writing Weird Fiction”; he also wrote keen essays on Lord Dunsany, Robert E. Howard, and other leading figures. Much of his weird fiction is based on his deeply held philosophical views, and he expounds those views in ‘In Defence of Dagon’ and other pieces.” #63843
