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.

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.

Hippocampus Press: NY. 2005.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Trade paperback original.
298 pages. Rheinhart Kleiner (1892-1949) was one of H. P. Lovecraft’s earliest correspondents. The recipient of the first issue of Lovecraft’s amateur paper, the Conservative, in 1915, Kleiner challenged Lovecraft to reconsider his dogmatic views on race, literature, and society. This volume prints, for the first time, the complete surviving letters of Lovecraft to Kleiner, showing how Lovecraft gradually transformed himself from an eighteenth-century fossil to a participant in the society and culture of his time. The letters address such wide-ranging subjects as erotic love, racial prejudice, the art of poetry, Lovecraft’s boyhood and upbringing, and much else. Richly philosophical, these letters display the fundamentals of Lovecraft’s distinctive cosmic vision. In an extensive appendix are found all of Lovecraft’s and Kleiner’s poems addressed to each other, along with Kleiner’s several provocative essays on Lovecraft. Meticulously edited and annotated by David E. Schultz and S. T. Joshi.

Hippocampus Press: NY. 2004.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Discovering the amateur press in 1914, Lovecraft immediately flooded the many small papers of his friends and colleagues with contributions discussing the nature, purpose, and future of amateur journalism. He also edited his own magazine, The Conservative (1915-23), filling it with additional essays. In these articles Lovecraft discusses the conflict between the United and the National Amateur Press Associations; the halcyon days of the amateur movement (1885-95); and the needs and betterment of the amateur cause. We read of Lovecraft's bitter feuds with his fellow amateurs; his exhaustive critiques of their writing; and, most poignant of all, his touching affirmation of What Amateurdom and I Have Done for Each Other, in which he concludes simply: What Amateur Journalism has given me is life itself. 440 pages.

Hardcover.
Lovecraft's writings in the realm of literary criticism are unfailingly acute and cover a surprisingly wide range. Besides his authoritative early essay on the Literature of Rome (1918), other works condemn free verse and simple spelling, and devote attention to neglected poets. Discovering weird fiction as his chosen field, he produced such scintillating essays as Lord Dunsany and His Work (1922) and Supernatural Horror in Literature (1927), along with essays on Frank Belknap Long and Clark Ashton Smith. Late in life Lovecraft codified his grasp of weird literature by writing such trenchant pieces as Notes on Writing Weird Fiction (1933) and Some Notes on Interplanetary Fiction (1934). One of his last writings, Suggestions for a Reading Guide (1936), is a comprehensive discussion of world literature.

Hippocampus Press: NY. 2006.

Hardcover.
Volume 3. A self-proclaimed ''mechanistic materialist,'' Lovecraft took an unremittingly scientific view of reality. This perspective informed the whole of his literary output, but is nowhere so clearly seen as in this assemblage of his writings on science. Beginning with the scientific journals, treatises and astronomy columns of his early years, and continuing throughout his life, these writings illuminate Lovecraft's thought in a unique, and until now, largely unappreciated way. As a bonus, almost two-dozen of HPL's hand lettered star maps are reproduced. 358 pages.

Hardcover.
Volume 4. Far from being a recluse, H. P. Lovecraft traveled widely -- ranging as far north as Quebec, as far south as Florida and Louisiana, and as far west as Ohio. He wrote interestingly and at length about these expeditions. Collected here are all his formal travelogues, including ''Vermont - A First Impression'' (1927), ''Observations on Several Parts of America'' (1928), ''Travels in the Provinces of America'' (1929), and ''An Account of a Visit to Charleston'' (1930). Also included is ''A Description of the Town of Quebeck, in New France, Lately Added to His Britannick Majesty's Dominions,'' which, at 75,000 words, was Lovecraft's longest work. As a bonus, all of Lovecraft's hand-drawn maps and illustrations of the regions he visited are reproduced. This hardcover edition was issued a few weeks after the paperback edition.

Fine copy in a fine dustjacket (as new).
