The second biography of Howard Phillips Lovecraft, this Herculean undertaking by S.T. Joshi exhumes incredible minutae of HPL's life and times, and may be dense reading for many; you could term L. Sprague de Campt's biography as a general introduction to the man, whereas Joshi gets inside HPL's skin with a surgeon's skills.This hardbound edition of 250 copies, signed by the author, was sold out before publication. With the addition of new HPL discoveries, this biography was expanded by Joshi and published in a two-volume set by Hippocampus Press, but this single volume contains all the meat & potatoes, and is the one I find myself referencing most easily.
