THIS YEAR: Publication of A LOOK BEHIND THE DERLETH MYTHOS: ORIGINS OF THE CTHULHU MYTHOS

Image

Cover design: Henrik Sandbeck Harksen (not final)

This is what I am working on right now… A bumper of a hardcover book (350+ pages!) that is bound to change how scholars look at August Derleth, founder of Arkham House and a bookman unlike any other. Author and scholar John D. Haefele tackles the critiques thrown Derleth’s way since his death in 1971, and with data culled from thorough fieldwork he sets the record straight.

Whether you’re interested in the Lovecraft-Derleth debate (Lovecraftian vs. Cthulhu Mythos), Derleth himself (he was indeed an interesting, diverse person) or the history and direction of the weird tale and publishing in the 20th Century — this is the book to get!

With a preface written by none other than one of today’s finest Cthulhu Mythos writers, W. H. Pugmire.
