In 2014, The New Annotated H. P. Lovecraft was published to widespread acclaim- vaunted as a treasure trove (Joyce Carol Oates) for Lovecraft aficionados and general readers, alike. Hailed by Harlon Ellison as an Olympian landmark of modern gothic literature, the volume included twenty-two of Lovecraft's original stories. Now, in this final volume, best- selling author Leslie S. Klinger reanimates twenty-five additional stories, the balance of Lovecraft's significant fiction, including Rats in the Wall, a post- World War I story about the terrors of the past, and the newly contextualized The Horror at Red Hook, which recently has been adapted by best- selling novelist Victor LaValle. In following Lovecraft's own literary trajectory, readers can witness his evolution from Rhode Island critic to prescient literary genius whose titanic influence would only be appreciated decades after his death. Including hundreds of eye- opening annotations and dozens of rare images, Beyond Arkham finally provides the complete picture of Lovecraft's unparalleled achievements in fiction.

Reviews for The New Annotated H P Lovecraft: Beyond Arkham

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
