A Monster Of Voices: Speaking for H.P. Lovecraft by Robert H. Waugh (book review).

When it comes to the deeper criticism of HP Lovecraft, there’s little out there to match Robert H. Waugh. What sets Waugh apart from, say, S T Joshi, is his willingness to explore what Lovecraft’s stories mean, not simply where they came from. It’s this that makes this collection of Waugh’s essays so enjoyable. Take, […]

Collected Essays Volume 3: Science by H.P. Lovecraft edited by S.T. Joshi (book review).

One of the things that isn’t well known about H.P. Lovecraft is that the first thing he ever had published wasn’t a story or even a poem but a letter to the editor of the ‘Providence Sunday Journal’ pointing out the scientific impossibility of the ‘transit of Mars’ that had been described by an astrologer […]

The Case Of Charles Dexter Ward by H.P. Lovecraft and illustrated by I.N.J. Culbard (graphic novel review).

Alongside the simultaneous re-releases of ‘The Dream Quest Of Unknown Kadath’ and ‘The Shadow Out Of Time’, SelfMadeHero have republished another of the I.N.J. Culbard graphic novels in a slightly smaller paperback format. Again, the adaptation is basically sound but having read through all three of them now, the quirks, if not quite limitations, of […]

The Shadow Out Of Time by H.P. Lovecraft and illustrated by I.N.J. Culbard (book review).

One of Lovecraft’s final works, ‘The Shadow Out Of Time’ is widely considered a masterpiece of the genre. It tells the story of an economics professor, Nathaniel Peaslee, trying to reconstruct the missing years of his life of which he has no memory. Half-way through giving a lecture in 1908 he passed out and, so […]

The Dream-Quest Of Unknown Kadath by H.P. Lovecraft and I.N.J. Culbard (book review).

Artist I.N.J. Culbard has adapted another H.P. Lovecraft story after winning an award for ‘At The Mountains Of Madness’. ‘The Dream-Quest Of Unknown Kadath’, a quirky work even by Lovecraft’s standards, was not published in his lifetime. Posthumously, of course, every word he ever penned in now available in one form or another. This story […]

The Shadow Out Of Time by H.P. Lovecraft and illustrated by I.N.J. Culbard (graphic novel review).

While HP Lovecraft himself had problems writing ‘The Shadow Out Of Time’ and never considered it entirely satisfactory, subsequent critics have generally regarded it as one of his masterpieces. Part thriller, part monster story, part psychological study and part political manifesto, ‘The Shadow Out Of Time’ is in its entirety a superb piece of Science […]
