Read full description of the books The Cthulhu Mythos:A prot g of H.P. Lovecraft, August Derleth patterned his own eerie fiction after images and themes taken from the horror stories written by Lovecraft for the pulp magazine Weird Tales. It was Derleth who formally named the myth pattern permeating his mentor's works after a fearsome alien being called Cthulhu who made but a single appearance in Lovecraft's ouevre. Derleth continued Lovecraft's legacy with his own series of highly original tales, set in a similar dark universe where chaos and evil vie with humanity for control of the world. This anthology collects the best of Derleth's horror cycle.
Read information about the authorAugust William Derleth was an American writer and anthologist. Though best remembered as the first publisher of the writings of H. P. Lovecraft, and for his own contributions to the Cthulhu Mythos genre of horror, Derleth was a leading American regional writer of his day, as well as prolific in several other genres, including historical fiction, poetry, detective fiction, science fiction, and biography.
A 1938 Guggenheim Fellow, Derleth considered his most serious work to be the ambitious Sac Prairie Saga, a series of fiction, historical fiction, poetry, and non-fiction naturalist works designed to memorialize life in the Wisconsin he knew. Derleth can also be considered a pioneering naturalist and conservationist in his writing.
