    lovecraft was as singularly bizarre an individual as was his creative output, although not in the way you'd think...banality and hyper-erudition are really the two words that sum him up most...the above collection of letters is actually volume III...volumes I and II comprise letters from earlier periods...i don't think they've ever been re-printed outside Arkham House, but if you can find them, i would highly encourage reading them...extraordinary stuff...

    I just got a copy of this for my birthday,and it's a fun read,although sad at times to realize the poverty that Lovecraft lived in at the later parts of his life.
