[Luckhurst] furnishes a satisfyingly wide-ranging introduction that situates Lovecraft's work in relation to his scientific materialist views and his rather chilly stance of "cosmic indifferentism".
For those interested in Lovecraft but unsure of where to start, this book rolls out the welcome mat. Highly recommended for both new readers and seasoned veterans with an eye toward literary curatorship.

He has influenced writers such as Robert Bloch and Stephen King, and film-makers such as David Lynch.Roger Luckhurst is the author of The Invention of Telepathy (OUP, 2002), Science Fiction (Polity Press, 2005), The Trauma Question (Routledge, 2008), and The Mummy's Curse: The True History of a Dark Fantasy (OUP, 2012).
