By William Schoell
Back Cover Text
The dark tales of H.P. Lovecraft have influenced many of today’s famous writers, including
Stephen King and Joyce Carol Oates, yet during his short life, Lovecraft himself did not enjoy
fame. Instead, he lived quietly in his hometown of Providence, Rhode Island, where he wrote
macabre stories, poems, literary criticism, and essays. His stories were published in cheap pulp
magazines, and after his death in 1937, his fiction was collected in a few volumes. In H.P.
Lovecraft: Master of Weird Fiction, William Schoell recaptures this American writer for a
new generation of readers.
William Schoell is also the author of Remarkable Journeys: The Story of Jules Verne.
