With this booklet Brennan challanges critic, Edmund Wilson's cavalier condemnation of Lovecraft and his fiction—especially his Mythos related pieces—with his defense of five tales that Brennan contends, ranks with the best of Poe—THE MUSIC OF ERICH ZANN (one of HPL's personal favorites), ;RATS IN THE WALLS (my personal favorite!); THE OUTSIDER; PICKMAN'S MODEL and THE HOUND. "The limitations of this little critique do not permit me to touch on many other good Lovecraft stories. I have mentioned only five which I think are the best . . . expressing a pseronal opinion—a personal taste—. . . Time alone will decide who is right!" Copy #1 of 75—the author's copy.
