This carefully crafted ebook: “The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath (Fantasy Classic)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath belongs to Lovecraft's famous Dream Cycle. The protagonist Randolph Carter dreams three times of a majestic sunset city, but each time he is abruptly snatched away before he can see it up close. When he prays to the gods of dream to reveal the whereabouts of the phantasmal city, they do not answer, and his dreams of the city stop altogether. Undaunted, Carter resolves to go to Kadath, where the gods live, to beseech them in person. However, no one has ever been to Kadath and none even knows how to get there. In dream, Randolph Carter descends "seventy steps" and speaks of his plan to the priests Nasht and Kaman-Thah, whose temple - the Cavern of Flame - borders the Dreamlands. The priests warn Carter of the great danger of his quest and suggest that the gods withdrew his vision of the city on purpose. Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937) was an American author who achieved posthumous fame through his influential works of horror fiction. He is now regarded as one of the most significant 20th-century authors in his genre. Some of Lovecraft's work was inspired by his own nightmares. His interest started from his childhood days when his grandfather would tell him Gothic horror stories.

Lovecraft was considered a talented writer, an authority in storytelling and a highly respected erudite, a walking encyclopedia of ancient and modern knowledge. His passion to horror and science fiction was dated back from his childhood, where he used to have a lot of nightmares of monsters, demons and fears. He used them to facilitate his stories and writing later on. H.P. Lovecraft is known as a “future writer.” That’s because Lovecraft lived quite a difficult life through severe poverty, illness caused by self-neglect, his wife left him because of financial issues, and all of this despite his talents. Lovecraft was never recognized as a successful writer during his lifetime, because he never published any of his work. He was known only to local communities. However, Lovecraft was more than just a writer, but a mentor to many successful horror and science fiction writers we know today. Without Lovecraft, people like Ramsey Campbell, Neil Gaiman, Robert Bloch, Clive Barker and Stephen King would never be the same. In fact, Stephen King himself claimed that Lovecraft was his top literary influence among many others. Thirty years after Lovecraft's death, the writer hit the first peak of his posthumous popularity, because his friends formed a publishing company of his work. Critics compared Lovecraft to Edgar Allan Poe himself, giving credit to his influence on the world of horror fiction decades after his actual death. Unfortunately, H.P. Lovecraft did not enjoy any of the material abundance and fame this life has to offer despite his talents for reasons already mentioned. H.P. Lovecraft’s work was adopted and taken by tabletop game, metal songs, Hollywood movies where some writer’s stories remained virtually unknown in mainstream for a decade. The writer’s stories were like some buried treasures, hidden gems, or a gold mine of some sort to folks on Hollywood and the entertainment industry, because they were considered as interesting plots for movies. However, one thing will always stand out: without Lovecraft, the modern horror wouldn’t be what it is today.

H.P. Lovecraft, one of the twentieth century’s most important writers in the genre of horror fiction, famously referred to Edgar Allan Poe as both his “model” and his “God of Fiction.” While scholars and readers of Poe’s and Lovecraft’s work have long recognized the connection between these authors, this collection of essays is the first in-depth study to explore the complex literary relationship between Lovecraft and Poe from a variety of critical perspectives. Of the thirteen essays included in this book, some consider how Poe’s work influenced Lovecraft in important ways. Other essays explore how Lovecraft’s fictional, critical, and poetic reception of Poe irrevocably changed how Poe’s work has been understood by subsequent generations of readers and interpreters. Addressing a variety of topics ranging from the psychology of influence to racial and sexual politics, the essays in this book also consider how Lovecraft’s interpretations of Poe have informed later adaptations of both writers’ works in films by Roger Corman and fiction by Stephen King, Thomas Ligotti, and Caitlin R. Kiernan. This collection is an indispensable resource not only for those who are interested in Poe’s and Lovecraft’s work specifically, but also for readers who wish to learn more about the modern history and evolution of Gothic, horror, and weird fiction.
