Trade paperback original.
302 pages: ''during the past two decades, Robert H. Waugh has established himself as a leading scholar on H. P. Lovecraft. Bringing to the study of Lovecraft a remarkable breadth of knowledge in literature, aesthetics, history, and philosophy, Waugh has approached his subject with sensitivity and nuance. In this volume of his collected essays on Lovecraft, the reader will learn of the importance of documents in Lovecraft’s work; his provocative similarities to the Italian poet Giacomo Leopardi; and his fascination with underground horror, as exemplified in At the Mountains of Madness and other tales. In a trilogy of substantial essays, Waugh looks at Lovecraft’s seminal story The Outsider from a variety of critical perspectives. A concluding article probes the controverted issue of religion in Lovecraft’s life, thought, and writings''.

Hippocampus Press: NY. 2006.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Trade paperback original.
During H. P. Lovecraft's residence in New York City, his social and literary life centered upon a group of friends collectively known as the Kalem Club, so named for the initials of the surnames of original members--K, L, or M. Gatherings or meetings were frequently held in members’ homes, and particularly in Manhattan’s Chelsea district, for it was there that Lovecraft’s friend George Kirk lived, and where, in the building HPL utilized as the setting of 'Cool Air' Kirk operated his Chelsea Book Shop. From August 1924 until March 1927, George Kirk wrote almost daily to his fiancee in Cleveland, revealing many details of his interactions with the other Kalems. After nearly seventy years, the letters were discovered by Kirk’s daughter Mara Kirk Hart, who used portions of them as the basis for her fascinating chronicle of the Kalem Club, 'Walkers in the City'. Now expanding greatly upon that earlier work, she and S. T. Joshi have here assembled all the letters of George Kirk that relate information about the Kalem members and their activities during this time, together with representative writings of all the Kalem members during their most active and fruitful period.

448 Lovecraft, H. P. (ed. S. T. Joshi & David E. Schultz)Essential Solitude: The Letters Of H. P. Lovecraft and August Derleth: 1926-1931 (and) 1932-1937. 43059
Hippocampus Press: NY. 2013.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Trade paperback originals.
Two volumes: 880 pages in total. In the first volume, Lovecraft’s relations to one of his most prominent colleagues and disciples, August Derleth (1909-1971), are recounted in the hundreds of letters they exchanged beginning in 1926. The youthful Derleth first wrote to Lovecraft, via Weird Tales magazine, in regard to an obscure work of weird fiction, and their subsequent correspondence deals extensively with the history of weird fiction, the two authors’ ongoing attempts to publish stories in pulp magazines, Derleth’s evolution into a sensitive writer of regional fiction and of detective stories, and debates over such issues as spiritualism, occultism, the literary use of coincidence, points of language and style, and other matters. Especially noteworthy are several letters by Lovecraft that Derleth interpreted as giving him permission to elaborate upon Lovecraft’s pseudomythology, which Derleth named the Cthulhu Mythos. In the second volume, Lovecraft and Derleth - now noted luminaries in Weird Tales and the world of pulp magazines - continue to write letters on an almost weekly basis. Lovecraft, however, is plagued with self-doubt as a result of the rejection of At the Mountains of Madness by Weird Tales and other professional setbacks. Meanwhile, Derleth is beginning to make a name for himself in the realm of detective fiction with the creation of Solar Pons; he has also begun sensitive mainstream writing that is finding placement in prestigious little magazines of the period. Derleth himself surreptitiously submitted Lovecraft’s The Shadow over Innsmouth and The Dreams in the Witch House to Weird Tales; the former was rejected, the latter accepted. In all, Lovecraft wrote nearly 400 letters to Derleth, but only about 40 of Derleth’s letters to Lovecraft survive. First published in hardcover in 2008.
