"The scholarship throughout is sharp, current, and often makes use of one of the greatest strengths of Lovecraft study: his abundant published correspondence."--Publishers Weekly

"An excellent read for the committed Lovecraft scholar."--Fortean Times

"[An] excellent collection of scholarly essays."--PopMatters

"Lovecraft's many and deep flaws are almost beside the point - he was a writer who achieved importance by saying one or two things memorably and very clearly. This is why Lovecraft is an important figure not only in popular culture but in other disciplines as well."--Times Literary Supplement

"Highly recommended."--CHOICE

"Sederholm and Weistock perform an exemplary balancing act in neither dodging the controversies surrounding Lovecraft's grotesque racism nor granting that the issue diminishes the legitimacy of scholarly interest in the author or his work. Lovecraft scholars will find much of interest here, but so too will anyone wanting further insight into the ongoing cultural resonances of various (and often noxious) early twentieth-century neuroses."--Paradoxa

"A welcome addition to the growing body of scholarship focused on Lovecraft."--Los Angeles Review of Books

"A total success."--Journal of Popular Culture
