THE LOVECRAFT LEXICON: A Reader's Guide to Persons, Places and Things in the Tales of H. P. Lovecraft - by Anthony Pearsall


THE LOVECRAFT LEXICON: A Reader's Guide to Persons, Places and Things in the Tales of H. P. Lovecraft - by Anthony Pearsall

Although he died in 1937, Howard Phillips Lovecraft's remarkable body of work lives on - including the classics 'The Dunwich Horror' and 'The Call of Cthulhu' his stories continue to astound and amaze a large and varied audience - with elements of Magic, Horror and Fantasy his worlds are very complex - filled with a daunting array of bizarre and obscure characters, creatures, monsters, caves, caverns, abysses things, places and recurring themes - quite a task for anyone to figure out.

So, Anthony Pearsall has done just that - From 'Abbadon' (the demon) to 'Zuro' (a river) The Lovecraft Lexicon is a definitive guide to this incredible universe with hundreds of meticulously researched entries - a catalog of persons, places and things mentioned through-out Lovecraft's vast writings - the first 25 pages are an accurate biography of H. P. Lovecraft -- Massive in it's scope, this is a huge 472 Page Paperback Guide Book - Very Thorough and Inclusive - No Illustrations.

*NOTE: There is one flaw - Page 125 and Page 127 are the same - I read you can find the missing info on the publishers web-site.
