Synopsis: Dirk W. Mosig is the father of modern Lovecraft studies . . . for the first time his most significant essays have been collected into book form, including four previously unpublished works, as well as appreciations by: Donald R. Burleson, Peter Cannon, S. T. Joshi, Robert M. Price, and Laila Briquet-Mosig. Included in this collection are: The Great American Throw-away; H. P. Lovecraft: Myth-Maker; The Prophet from Providence; Toward a Greater Appreciation of H. P. Lovecraft: The Analytical Approach; "The White Ship": A Psychological Odyssey; Poet of the Unconscious; the Four Faces of "The Outsider"; Poe, Hawthorne, and Lovecraft: Variations on a Theme of Panic; Lovecraft: The Dissonance Factor in Imaginative Literature; Lovecraft, Buddhism, and Quantum Reality; Understanding Pain, Suffering, and Lovecraft at Last; Lovecraft and Sibelius: A Musical Note; and Life After Lovecraft: Reminiscences of a Non-entity. ". . . His essays, some of them written more than twenty years ago, hold up amazingly well in spite of all the scholarship (much of it inspired by his own work) that has come after. Several of his utterances may now seem commonplace, but they do so only because he was the first to make them and to present convincing arguments for them. "Dirk Mosig is the key transitional figure in Lovecraft studies; and if the history of this field is ever written, he will have to occupy a central role, just as Edgar Allan Poe receives an entire chapter at the very centre of Lovecraft's 'Supernatural Horror in Literature'." from the tribute by S. T. Joshi
