Just in time for Halloween 2020, Kenneth Hite and I are proud to announce the release of the digital editions of the all new Tour de Lovecraft: The Destinations, and the Expanded Edition of Tour de Lovecraft: The Tales!
Tour de Lovecraft: The Destinations
In the all-new Tour de Lovecraft: The Destinations, Kenneth Hite expands on his “Lost in Lovecraft” column in Weird Tales magazine, conducting a second tour of Lovecraft’s settings: from Arkham to Antarctica, and from New York City to Hyperspace. Tour de Lovecraft: The Destinations drives the hidden routes connecting seemingly unrelated tales. It follows Lovecraft’s tracks into the uncanny landscapes of his fiction, and reads the eldritch signs on the Master’s map.
Hite climbs the crags of Kingsport, delves into Deep Time, and shines a light under the shadows over Innsmouth. With Hite as your driver and Tour de Lovecraft: The Destinations as your guidebook, you can’t get lost in Lovecraft even in the loneliest parts of the planet … unless you want to …
Tour de Lovecraft: The Tales – Expanded Edition
In the original Tour de Lovecraft: The Tales, Kenneth Hite guided readers through H.P. Lovecraft’s horror plots and themes, turning his game designer’s eye on the structures and connections of Lovecraft’s stories, revealing the threads and themes running between them. Hite alternately ambles and careens through all of the Master’s horror tales in chronological order from “The Tomb” to “The Haunter of the Dark,” offering cheerful opinion, incisive literary criticism, playful speculation, and the occasional unhinged rant. It’s a response to Lovecraft, and to his occasionally humorless critics, that offers you Edmund Burke’s Gothic perspective on Cthulhu side-by-side with “The Haunter of the Dark” considered as Grail quest.
In this new Tour de Lovecraft: The Tales – Expanded Edition, Ken vastly expands his coverage to include Lovecraft’s collaborations and revisions, the sublime sonnet cycle Fungi From Yuggoth, and highlights of HPL’s nonfiction including “Something About Cats” and Supernatural Horror in Literature.
