Join us for a Lovecraftian afternoon hosted by acclaimed Lovecraft scholar Leslie S. Klinger, and foods and drinks served from The Necronomnomnom cookbook.
Leslie S. Klinger is considered to be one of the world’s foremost authorities on Sherlock Holmes, Dracula, H. P. Lovecraft, Frankenstein, and the history of mystery and horror fiction. Klinger’s work has received numerous awards and nominations, including the Edgar for Best Critical-Biographical Book in 2005 for The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Short Stories and the Edgar for Best Critical-Biographical Book in 2019 for Classic American Crime Fiction of the 1920s and the Anthony for Best Anthology in 2015 for In the Company of Sherlock Holmes (co-edited with Laurie R. King); he was nominated for an Edgar for Best Critical-Biographical Book in 2006, two nominations for the Bram Stoker Award® for Best Nonfiction book, and is currently nominated for an Anthony for Best Critical/Non-fiction for Classic American Crime Fiction of the 1920s. His New Annotated Frankenstein was recently nominated for a World Fantasy Award.
In 2014, The New Annotated H. P. Lovecraft was published to widespread acclaim-- vaunted as a "treasure trove" (Joyce Carol Oates) for Lovecraft aficionados and general readers, alike. Hailed by Harlan Ellison as an "Olympian landmark of modern gothic literature," the volume included twenty-two of Lovecraft's original stories. Now, in this final volume, best- selling author Leslie S. Klinger reanimates twenty-five additional stories. Including hundreds of eye- opening annotations and dozens of rare images, Beyond Arkham finally provides the complete picture of Lovecraft's unparalleled achievements in fiction.
