If I'd had Leslie S. Klinger as my guide, I would have been better equipped to navigate the peculiarities of the Lovecraftian universe. Klinger's depth of knowledge about the world Lovecraft inhabited, and his ability to tease out shades of Lovecraft's personal experiences in the stories, make this volume the most exciting and definitive collection of Lovecraft's work out there. -- Danielle Trussoni - The New York Times Book Review Invaluable for long-term fans and newcomers alike, Beyond Arkham takes us on 25 incredible journeys from one of literature's most unhinged minds, the likes of which we'll quite possibly never see again. -- Starburst
