"No lover of Gothic literature will want to be without this literary keepsake, the final volume of Leslie Klinger's tour-de-force annotations of Lovecraft's canon. In 2014, The New Annotated H.P. Lovecraft was published to widespread acclaim--vaunted as a 'treasure trove' (Joyce Carol Oates) for Lovecraft aficionados and general readers, alike. The landmark volume, hailed by Harlon Ellison as an 'Olympian landmark of modern gothic literature,' included twenty-two of Lovecraft's original stories. Now, in this final volume, best-selling author Leslie S. Klinger reanimates twenty-five additional stories, the balance of Lovecraft's significant fiction, including Rats in the Wall, a post-WWI story about the terrors of the past, and the newly-contextualized The Horror at Red Hook, which has been recently adapted by bestselling novelist Victor LaValle. In following Lovecraft's own literary trajectory, readers can witness his evolution from Rhode Island critic to prescient literary genius, whose titanic influence would only be appreciated decades after his death. Including hundreds of eye-opening annotations and dozens of rare images, Beyond Arkham finally provides the complete picture of Lovecraft's unparalleled achievements in fiction"-- Provided by publisher.
