This newer edition features a long and fascinating and informed introduction by S. T. Joshi, the world's leading Lovecraft scholar. This is followed by a forward by Harold Taylor and a preface by Willis Conover. And then the wondrous history unfolds, of science fiction fandom in its Golden Age, and of Conover's enthusiastic involvement with it -- which led to his friendship by correspo0ndence with H. P. Lovecraft. Th following core of the book is an imaginative reproduction of Lovecraft's letters to Willis Conover, with some of the actual letters reproduced, and with extremely fascinating commentary by Conover. We find not only letters but essays and poems by the Master.
As a record of Lovecraft's kindness to young fans, and of his generous friendship with complete strangers, this book is a magnificent testimony. Any real fan of H. P. Lovecraft will treasure this wonderful book.
I went through most of the book before giving it to my son who is perhaps more an "HPLphile" than I could ever be. His opinion is similar to my own though phrased much more wittily.
