H. P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) is regarded as the leading twentieth-century American author of supernatural fiction. Leslie S. Klinger is one of the world's foremost authorities on Sherlock Holmes. He is the editor of the three-volume set The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes. The first two volumes, The Complete Short Stories, won the Edgar for "Best Critical/Biographical" work. He has just published In the Company of Sherlock Holmes and The New Annotated H. P. Lovecraft. Klinger is a member of the Baker Street Irregulars and lives in Malibu.
"The actual book is as vivid as the stories themselves, and beautiful to boot, with its inky black cover and gold embossed tentacles. Perfect for anyone who enjoys exploring the outer regions of the imagination - and guaranteed to give you the shivers on a cold winter's night." -- Sarah Vine, Christmas Books 2014 - Daily Mail "Lovecraft will now garner increased critical attention because of Leslie S. Klinger's sumptuous The New Annotated H. P. Lovecraft. While Klinger has supplied a sensitive introductory overview of the writer and his legacy, as well as marginal notes (mainly identifying the historical elements in the twenty-two selected stories), the great attractiveness of this volume lies in its illustrations." -- The Times Literary Supplement "Norton's new volume must surely be the definitive collection. It is meticulously and imaginatively edited, beautifully illustrated and immaculately produced, with a thought-stirring introduction by the graphic novel writer Alan Moore." -- New Statesman
