THE SHUTTERED ROOM is the third volume of the five HPL miscellanea and a particular favorite of mine (perhaps it's the very suggestive Richard Taylor d.j. illustration!). In August Derleth's introduction he notes how timely that to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the founding of Arkham House, a new HPL volume should be released as he himself stated - ""It seemed to us at Arkham House that our twentieth anniversary book ought to be a final collection of Lovecraftiana." But nothing set in stone Augie managed to find enough stuff for a few more. There are numerous HPL juvenalia present, remini... View more info
