The following list of books includes mostly in-print volumes but may also include some of the
more important out-of-print books.
Arkham House Publishers, Inc.
– Arkham House is the definitive source for Lovecraft’s fiction and letters. His
stories have been edited and corrected by S.T. Joshi based on Lovecraft’s original
autograph and typewritten manuscripts. These editions are attractive and inexpensive hardbacks
which will provide reading enjoyment for years to come.
Ballantine’s paperback editions of Lovecraft’s fiction provide an excellent
introduction to the newcomer to Lovecraft. Although most of these texts are not the versions
corrected by S.T. Joshi, they are readily available at most bookstores. The first three volumes
listed are large collections which contain all the stories in the later, smaller volumes, and
more as well.
Barnes & Noble
Carroll & Graf
– Arkham House’s The Horror in the Museum and Other
was printed by Carroll & Graf in the two paperback editions listed below.
However, only The Loved Dead and Other Revisions
includes the texts corrected by S.T.
Joshi. Carroll & Graf also published The Lurker at the Threshold
and The Watchers
Out of Time
under Lovecraft’s name, despite the fact that they are actually by August
Dell’s entry into the field of Lovecraft, The Annotated H.P. Lovecraft
, is marketed
as “literature.” Hear, hear!
