Periodicals

Primary

Periodicals devoted either exclusively or primarily to Lovecraft. The H.P. Lovecraft Archive hosts a comprehensive index to all issues of Lovecraft Studies, Crypt of Cthulhu, and Lovecraft Annual. See the pages for each periodical for their indices and issue lists.

Crypt of Cthulhu
Edited by Robert M. Price, this fanzine originally ran from 1981 to 2001, but resumed publication in 2017. It includes everything from scholarship to fiction to humor, and is currently published by Necronomicon Press.
Lovecraft Annual
Replacing the defunct Lovecraft Studies, this yearly journal is edited by S. T. Joshi and published by Hippocampus Press.
Lovecraft Studies
Also edited by S. T. Joshi, this publication “was originally founded in 1979 to offer a forum for serious study of Lovecraft’s work”. All issues but one were published by Necronomicon Press.
The New Lovecraft Collector
Edited by Peter Cannon and published by Necronomicon Press, this “quarterly newsletter [was] devoted to informing subscribers as to new and recent Lovecraft publications..., films, and other...items pertaining to the old gent from Providence.”
Studies in Weird Fiction
Edited by S. T. Joshi and published by Necronomicon Press. Similar to Lovecraft Studies, this periodical discussed weird tale authors other than Lovecraft, yet frequently touched on Lovecraftian themes.
