Lovecraftian Thing a Day No.185: The Age of Lovecraft
Today's offering is the recently published The Age of Lovecaft, a collection of academic essays concerning Lovecraft and Lovecraftian cultures edited by Carl Sederholm and Jeffrey Weinstock, which explores the manner in which the current Lovecraftian milieu gives expression to 'questions, anxieties, and desires that have become increasingly insistent since the close of the twentieth century and the start of the twenty-first'. I'm also privileged to know two of the contributers to this excellent volune - Patricia MacCormack and James Kneale - both of whose work herein offers sterling and salient additions to the expanding field of academic Lovecraft scholarship. You can purchase The Age of Lovecraft in digital and meatspace editions here.
