The New Annotated H. P. Lovecraft

Wow!! The New Annotated H.P. Lovecraft is a visually gorgeous book! 852 pages of detailed annotations, photographs, and art, Leslie S. Klinger's book is an Olympian landmark resource on Lovecraft, just as Lovecraft is an Olympian landmark of modern Gothic literature. 

The New Annotated H.P. Lovecraft includes:
  • More than 1,000 notes that provide information and context on every aspect of Lovecraft's life and work
  • Nearly 300 illustrations, including original artwork from Weird Tales and Astounding Stories
  • Extensive listings of films and audio recordings of Lovecraft's stories
  • Genealogy of the elder races
  • History of the Necronomicon
  • A list of the Miskatonic University faculty
  • A chronology of Lovecraft's writings
  • A new introduction by Alan Moore

This book is both the perfect starting point for curious newcomers and a towering intellectual feast for devotees of Lovecraft. It's impossible to portray just how incredible this book is. Weaving together a broad base of existing scholarship with his own original insights, Klinger appends Lovecraft's uncanny oeuvre and Kafkaesque life story in a way that provides context and unlocks many of the secrets of his often cryptic body of work.

“Annotator Les Klinger is the man you want to have by your side, as you explore the Lovecraftian Darkness.” (Neil Gaiman)
