Lin Carter – Lovecraft: A Look Behind the Cthulhu Mythos (Panther, 1975: originally Ballantine, US, 1972)


The Legend of Dread Cthulhu ….

Lovecraft’s brilliant creation of an occult dimension of horror swarming with such monstrous entities as dread Cthulhu, Yog-Sogoth, Azathoth and other malign supernatural beings has captured the imagination of millions of readers all over the world.

Lin Carter is one of the greatest authorities of our time on adult fantasy and an accomplished author of fantastic fiction in his own right. Here he gives us a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at Lovecraft himself and at the creation of the haunting mythos that must rank as this century’s greatest addition to the world’s store of supernatural tiction.

Thanks to James Diog for the cover scan!
