Recognized as a major innovator in the weird story, H. P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) was an author whose influence was felt by nearly every writer of horror, fantasy, and science fiction in the second half of the twentieth century. In H. P. Lovecraft and Influence: His Predecessors and Successors, Robert H. Waugh has assembled a collection of essays that not only examine the effect Lovecraft’s work has had—and continues to have—on writers, but how Lovecraft’s writing was shaped by those who preceded him. Chapters in this collection are devoted to authors such as Jonathan Swift, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Edgar Allan Poe, Lord Dunsany, Ramsey Campbell, Thomas Ligotti, Stephen King and more.
