Desperation drives an impoverished man into a dark realm in this chilling homage to H. P. Lovecraft by the award-winning author of The Horseman’s Grave. In the cold spring of 1936, Arthor Crandle accepts a position in Providence, Rhode Island, working as a live-in secretary for an unnamed shut-in—an author of unsettlingly bizarre fiction whose severely poor health has confined him to his bedroom. This writer, who Crandle knows only as “Ech-Pi,” refuses to meet him in person, communicating only by letters left outside his room. Soon, the home reveals other unnerving peculiarities. Crandle feels an ominous presence on the main stairwell. Light that shines from underneath the door of his employer’s room is invisible from the street. And then there are the haunting visions of a young girl in a white nightgown wandering the walled-in garden behind the house. As Crandle investigates his employer’s dark family history, he finds himself pulled into a world cut off from reality, into black depths, where an unspeakable secret lies waiting.

From author Jonathan L. Howard comes the start of a thrilling supernatural series that brings the H.P. Lovecraft mythos into the twenty-first century, optioned by Warner Bros TV. Daniel Carter used to be a homicide detective, but his last case -- the hunt for a serial killer -- went wrong in strange ways and soured the job for him. Now he's a private investigator trying to live a quiet life. Strangeness, however, has not finished with him. First he inherits a bookstore in Providence from someone he's never heard of, along with an indignant bookseller who doesn't want a new boss. She's Emily Lovecraft, the last known descendant of H.P. Lovecraft, the writer from Providence who told tales of the Great Old Ones and the Elder Gods, creatures and entities beyond the understanding of man. Then people start dying in impossible ways, and while Carter doesn't want to be involved, but he's beginning to suspect that someone else wants him to be. As he reluctantly investigates, he discovers that Lovecraft's tales were more than just fiction, and he must accept another unexpected, and far more unwanted inheritance.

Co-winner, Ray & Pat Browne Award for Best Edited Collection in Popular Culture and American Culture Howard Phillips Lovecraft, the American author of “weird tales” who died in 1937 impoverished and relatively unknown, has become a twenty-first-century star, cropping up in places both anticipated and unexpected. Authors, filmmakers, and shapers of popular culture like Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, and Guillermo del Toro acknowledge his influence; his fiction is key to the work of posthuman philosophers and cultural critics such as Graham Harman and Eugene Thacker; and Lovecraft’s creations have achieved unprecedented cultural ubiquity, even showing up on the animated program South Park. The Age of Lovecraft is the first sustained analysis of Lovecraft in relation to twenty-first-century critical theory and culture, delving into troubling aspects of his thought and writings. With contributions from scholars including Gothic expert David Punter, historian W. Scott Poole, musicologist Isabella van Elferen, and philosopher of the posthuman Patricia MacCormack, this wide-ranging volume brings together thinkers from an array of disciplines to consider Lovecraft’s contemporary cultural presence and its implications. Bookended by a preface from horror fiction luminary Ramsey Campbell and an extended interview with the central author of the New Weird, China Miéville, the collection addresses the question of “why Lovecraft, why now?” through a variety of approaches and angles. A must for scholars, students, and theoretically inclined readers interested in Lovecraft, popular culture, and intellectual trends, The Age of Lovecraft offers the most thorough examination of Lovecraft’s place in contemporary philosophy and critical theory to date as it seeks to shed light on the larger phenomenon of the dominance of weird fiction in the twenty-first century. Contributors: Jessica George; Brian Johnson, Carleton U; James Kneale, U College London; Patricia MacCormack, Anglia Ruskin U, Cambridge; Jed Mayer, SUNY New Paltz; China Miéville, Warwick U; W. Scott Poole, College of Charleston; David Punter, U of Bristol; David Simmons, Northampton U; Isabella van Elferen, Kingston U London.

Daniel Carter war früher bei der Mordkommission, aber sein letzter Fall - die Jagd nach einem Serienmörder - ging auf seltsamste Weise schief und verleidete ihm den Beruf. Nun ist er ein Privatdetektiv, der ein ruhiges Leben zu führen versucht. Doch das Verrückte ist noch nicht fertig mit ihm. Zuerst erbt er einen Buchladen in Providence von jemandem, von dem er noch nie gehört hat, zusammen mit einer mürrischen Buchhändlerin, die keinen neuen Chef will: Emily Lovecraft, die letzte bekannte Nachfahrin von H. P. Lovecraft, den Autor aus Providence, der Geschichten über die Großen Alten und Älteren Götter erzählte - Kreaturen und Wesen, die über den Verstand des Menschen hinausgehen. Plötzlich beginnen Leute auf unmöglichste Art und Weise zu sterben, und obwohl Carter nichts damit zu tun haben möchte, beginnt er zu vermuten, dass jemand anders eben das will. Während Carter widerwillig zu ermitteln beginnt, entdeckt er, dass H. P. Lovecrafts Geschichten mehr als nur Fiktion waren, und er muss ein weiteres unerwartetes und ungleich unerwünschteres Erbe antreten.
