Supernatural Horror in Literature
This lengthy historical essay on weird fiction by H. P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) was originally written in the late 1920s in response to a request from his friend W. Paul Cook for publication in the magazine, The Recluse.
Lovecraft continued to revise the essay, and his final version was published in The Outsider and Others, a Lovecraft memorial volume, edited by August Derleth and Donald Wandrei in 1939, two years after Lovecraft's death. The version of the essay that appeared there became the official text of the essay, and it has been reprinted several times since then.
