It is misleading, of course, to label this book as having been "read," for it is the kind of book that one never stops reading. For those of you interested in aspects of Lovecraft's Life and Works, this book is essential. But as an obsess'd Lovecraftian and professional Cthulhu Mythos writer, I am constantly returning to this book. It is, and shall remain, a source of information, entertainment and inspiration for new weird fiction of my own. Quite, quite wonderful!

Yes I read the entire encyclopedia front to back. I can't stop learning about the life and works of HPL. Next stop: HPL's letters to James F. Morton!

An excellent encyclopedia and reference work for anyone studying the life and works of HP Lovecraft.
