IN DEFENCE OF DAGON is a series of essays by HPL defending/defining his writing and philosophy of writing as exemplified in his very fine early tale — DAGON. When queried as to why HPL wrote the things he does he responded — " . . . the visions clamour for expression & preservation, so what am I to do? I paint what I dream, and will let the public settle the test amongst themselves. . . There are probably seven persons in all, who really like my work, and they are enough. I should write even if I were the only patient reader, for my aim is merely self-expression." Terrific background commentary by S.T. Joshi upon some of Lovecraft's best/most revelatory writing! Previously unpublished. A fine copy in stiff paper covers.
