It is a little-known — but entirely unsurprising — fact that Samuel Francis had a deep love and encyclopedic knowledge of H. P. Lovecraft. In honor of Lovecraft’s birthday, here is Francis’ review of S. T. Joshi’s H. P. Lovecraft: A Life and Lovecraft’s Miscellaneous Writings. — Greg Johnson

The Counter-Currents H. P. Lovecraft Prize for Literature

LovecraftPrize1crop270 words

On Sunday, November 8, the World Fantasy Awards announced that their prize bust would no longer bear the image of H. P. Lovecraft. Lovecraft, of course, was chosen for the honor because he is one of the giants of science fiction and fantasy literature.

I suspect, however, that if Lovecraft were alive, the antipathy would be mutual. Read more …

The origins of the modern “weird tale” lie in H. P. Lovecraft’s essay, Supernatural Horror in Literature. Not, of course, that there were not “weird” stories long before; Lovecraft himself traces them as far back as the Book of Enoch and various mediaeval works.[1]  Read more …
