A LATTER-DAY
LOVECRAFTIAN'S LIBRARY

BY
ROBERT M. PRICE
AND
EDWARD P. BERGLUND



Even strange aeons pass pretty quickly after a while, so it comes as a surprise to some of us elder Lovecraftians, who still remember our novitiate in the late 60's, reading paperback reprints of the Old Gent, that many newer readers of Cthulhuvian fiction have never even seen some of the fiction we cut our teeth on. Even books we remember being "recently" reprinted are now long gone, as unfamiliar to some of Shub-Niggurath's Young as the Library of Alexandria. These realities have come to impinge on me more and more since I have been compiling anthologies of Mythos fiction for Fedogan & Bremer and Chaosium. I have endeavored in these series to make available the classic tales of the Lovecraft Mythos, as well as many stray and rumored items even devoted collectors have sought for in vain. Due not only to my own collections, but also to those from other editors and publishers, we are in a fortunate time for new Mythos readers and veteran collectors alike. It should not be too difficult to compile your own archives of the fundamental Cthulhu lore, as well as a comprehensive collection of marginal and minor, but still fascinating, Mythos fiction. There is even a bumper crop of new material, so much, in fact, that it is hard to keep up with all of it. What I have tried to do here is to facilitate your rounding up of this material. Good hunting.
