In the summer of 2007, while I was compiling Necronomicon: The Best Weird Tales of H.P. Lovecraft
for Gollancz, I was fortunate to be given the rare opportunity to look through the British publisher's
original Lovecraft files, some of the contents of which dated back more than fifty years. With this monograph
I have attempted to catalogue for the first time a detailed history of the publication of H.P. Lovecraft's
fiction in Britain, much of it based on the material contained in these files.
|I. DARK DEBUT|| |
|II. TERRORS AND TRIBULATIONS|| |
|III.LICENCE TO CHILL|| |
"Obviously a must-have for scholars of the Mythos."
SF SITE, Mid-May 2008
"It's fascinating both in its revelations about the working practices of the publishing industry and the many characters involved but also as a historical document of a publishing event which still has an impact today."
—TALES FROM THE BLACK ABYSS, April 1, 2010
"The first detailed history of the publication of Lovecraft's fiction in Britain, based on newly discovered files at the publisher, Victor Gollancz."
