David Szolloskei: H.P. Lovecraft: Creating Real Fiction, VDM Verlag,Jul 2008 ISBN: 9783639029413
One of the primal emotions of mankind is fear. Especially fear of the unknown. This principal was drawn by H. P. Lovecraft who has become one of the most significant horror writers of the 20th century, followed by many authors trying to sustain his heritage ofnew conception. By his achievements Lovecraft can be considered as the renewer of time-worn scare story and creator of modern horror writing. On the other hand Lovecraft was not appreciated in his lifetime and the widespread recognition and popularity had been waiting for decades after his death. Considering the above one may wonder why Lovecraft was appreciated only post humously despite his literary achievements. This book gives a comprehensive idea of the Lovecraftian work and hereby evidences the statement by providing ageneral idea of the development of scare story and the elaboration of his individual style. Furthermore this book gives answer to the above mentioned seemingly inconsequential question of self-contradiction by analysing the literary background of his age and the reception of his work. The analysis could be useful to everyone interested in horror in literature and its remarkable renewal by Lovecraft.

H. P. Lovecraft: The Ancient Track, Hippocampus Press,Aug 2013 ISBN: 9781614980704
The publication in 2001 of The Ancient Track: The Complete Poetical Works of H. P. Lovecraft was a landmark. For the first time, all of Lovecraft's 500 or more poems-including hundreds of Christmas greetings, untitled poems, fragments, and poems embedded in his published and unpublished letters-were gathered in accurate texts, with critical commentary and full bibliography. Since that time, a dozen or more poems or poetic fragments have been discovered by scholars and researchers, and this new edition prints these items along with several other works of interest. Poems that Lovecraft revised for various authors are included, along with (where extant) the original poems that served as the basis for the revisions. The original versions of poems by Ovid, Horace, and other classical poets that Lovecraft translated are provided. And the commentary and bibliography have been thoroughly revised and updated. It can well be said that this second edition of The Ancient Track is the definitive collection of Lovecraft's entire poetic output. It has been edited by S. T. Joshi, a leading authority on Lovecraft and the editor of Lovecraft's collected fiction, revisions, essays, and letters.
