Description : Explores issues related to race and religion in Lovecraft criticism. Today, H. P. Lovecraft is both more popular and controversial than ever: the influence of his “Cthulhu mythos” is everywhere in popular culture, his cosmic pessimism has reemerged as a major theme in contemporary philosophy, and his racism continues to spark controversy in the media. The Love of Ruins takes a fresh look at a figure widely acknowledged as the father of modern horror or “weird” fiction. In these pages, Lovecraft emerges not as the atheist and nihilist he is often claimed to be, but as a kind of “psychonaut” and mystic whose stories, through their own imaginative rigor, expose the intellectual bankruptcy of their author’s racism. The Love of Ruins is itself written in the form of letters, in order to do homage to Lovecraft’s love of the form of the personal letter (he wrote more than 100,000), and to emulate Lovecraft’s lifetime practice of thinking-as-corresponding. “The Love of Ruins ranks among the small handful of the very best Lovecraftian analyses. Erudite, sophisticated, and insightful, this volume is a pure joy to read. A must have for anyone interested in Lovecraft or the field of dark fantasy.” — Gary Hoppenstand, author of Clive Barker’s Short Stories: Imagination as Metaphor in the Books of Blood and Other Works

Lovecraft replied promptly on November 2 of that year, the seed of an invigorating correspondence, which lasted till Lovecraft's passing. Fritz Leiber and H.P. Lovecraft: Writers of the Dark presents Lovecraft's letters to Leiber, an impressive selection of Leiber's fiction which shows Lovecraft's influence, and a selection of Leiber's essays on Lovecraft and Matters Lovecraftian.
