A Look Behind the Derleth Mythos free pdf "Trust me, this book makes a mind-blowing addition to your weird fiction criticism collection." --- Ross E. Lockhart, editor of "The Book of Cthulhu" "As a writer in this tradition, I devour books about the Mythos. . . ["A Look Behind the Derleth Mythos"] is the finest such book that I have ever read." --- Wilum H. Pugmire, author of "Some Unknown Gulf of Night" and "Uncommon Places" An instant classic when first released, John D. Haefele's critically acclaimed account of the birth of the Cthulhu Mythos is now back in a completely revised trade paperback edition overflowing with fascinating new insights and discoveries. In 1939, the prolific Wisconsin writer August Derleth launched Arkham House, one of the most influential small presses in the history of publishing. Its mission: to preserve in the permanence of hardcovers the writings of Derleth's late friend, the legendary horror fantasist Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937). During three decades of editing and storytelling, Derleth became the major player in the explosive growth of the "Cthulhu Mythos" into a worldwide cultural phenomenon. Does the Cthulhu Mythos owe its existence to the Lovecraft Mythos -- or is the parallel fictional world of the Derleth Mythos even "more" influential? Comparatively shallow works such as S. T. Joshi's "The Rise and Fall of the Cthulhu Mythos" are filled with misconceptions and tell only a small part of this hotly controversial story. Now join Haefele as he digs far deeper, unearthing important layers of the saga neglected by past scholars. "A Look Behind the Derleth Mythos" answers numerous questions with fresh evidence and thunderous revelations, covering in unprecedented detail everything from the notorious Black Magic Quote to Derleth's infamous "posthumous collaborations" with Lovecraft. One of the most striking books of criticism ever written on the works of H. P. Lovecraft, "A Look Behind the Derleth Mythos" is a riveting chronicle no fan of Cthulhu, Yog-Sothoth and Nyarlathotep should miss!
