Mosig at Last:
A Psychologist Looks at H.P. Lovecraft

------=-O-=------

By Yōzan Dirk W. Mosig

[Cover]

Back Cover Text

      “. . . His essays, some of them written more than twenty years ago, hold up amazingly well in spite of all the scholarship (much of it inspired by his own work) that has come after. Several of his utterances may now seem commonplace, but they do so only because he was the first to make them and to present convincing arguments for them.
      “Dirk Mosig is the key transitional figure in Lovecraft studies; and if the history of this field is ever written, he will have to occupy a central role, just as Edgard Allan Poe receives an entire chapter at the very centre of Lovecraft’s ‘Supernatural Horror in Literature’.”
      — from the tribute by S.T. Joshi
