Quotes & Awards

  • “[Lovecraft’s] dream fantasy works are as terrifying and haunting as his tales of horror and the macabre. A master craftsman, Lovecraft brings compelling visions of nightmarish fear, invisible worlds, and the demons of the unconscious. If one author truly represents the very best in American literary horror, it is H. P. Lovecraft.”

    John Carpenter

  • “One is drawn into Lovecraft by the very air of plausibility and characteristic understatement of the prose, the question being, ‘When will the weirdness strike?’”

    Joyce Carol Oates

  • “This book is a welcome tribute to a writer whose dreams inspired some of this century’s finest literary nightmares.”
