Summary H.P. Lovecraft has come to be recognised as the leading author of supernatural fiction in the twentieth century. But how did a man who died in poverty, with no book of his stories published in his lifetime, become such an icon in horror literature? S.T. Joshi, the leading authority on Lovecraft, traces in detail the course of Lovecraft?s life and shows how Lovecraft was engaged in the political, economic, social and intellectual currents of his time.
