Publisher's Summary

Between 1925-27, H.P. Lovecraft wrote Supernatural Horror in Literature, an extended essay about about the history of the weird tale. In it he describes supernatural horror from its earliest manifestations up to the 1920s. Lovecraft offers his own candid opinions on the merits (and deficiencies) of the world's canon of strange literature. The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society recorded the essay as an audiobook. Read by society founders Sean Branney and Andrew Leman, the recording is approximately three hours long. The text is edited by Lovecraft scholar S.T. Joshi and the recording features original music by Troy Sterling Nies. Don't miss your chance to hear Lovecraft as a literary critic, addressing the genre in which he was to prove himself as a master.

A Fantastic Multi Dimensional Experience!

loved this book and especially its narrators! Now I have a lot of books to read that I didn't know of before! Also the way the narrative was done makes my skin crawl every time I listen! Simply a wonderful job done by the HP Lovecraft Historical Society!
