Matt Cardin has a great review of Against Religion forthcoming in the Fall 2010 issue of Dead Reckonings magazine.
…Lovecraft approaches the idea of cosmic meaninglessness and human insignificance in a way that can render it exhilarating, and that explodes the still-lingering idea that he was a morbid recluse with an eccentrically deranged inner life.
our new Lovecraft book, Against Religion, is now available for purchase.
We are very partial, but would suggest you buy multiple copies, especially if you’re short, going to receive a tax return this year, or have wobbly furniture.
… and Christopher Hitchens wrote the introduction.
Now you know.
Friends and Readers,
The H.P. Lovecraft book is now for sale on Lulu. It will be available for sale later on Amazon (along with other e-reader formats like the kindle, etc.)
Against Religion contains the major writings on religion, materialism, and spirituality by master horror writer H.P. Lovecraft. Including an introduction and notes by celebrated Lovecraft scholar S.T. Joshi and a foreword by noted atheist and writer Christopher Hitchens, this essential edition brings a new voice to the religious debate, and Lovecraft’s clairvoyant
writing on the topic is as prescient today as it was during his lifetime.
H.P. Lovecraft is the author of numerous weird tales, among them The Call of Cthulhu. His recent inclusion in the Library of America marks his unique contribution to the horror genre, and his continuing influence on writers in all genres today.
S.T. Joshi is the author of H.P. Lovecrtaft: A Life, and the leading scholar and editor of Lovecraft’s work.
Christopher Hitchens is the New York Times bestselling author of God Is Not Great, and editor of The Portable Atheist: Essential Readings for the Nonbeliever.
Sporting Gentlemen, it is my pleasure to reveal the cover of Mr. Lovecraft’s book, Against Religion. There are a few tweaks upcoming, but, essentially, what you see is what you get. This cover was designed and illustrated by Mr. Mike Force, the newest addition to the Sporting Gentlemen’s core think-team.
Needless to say, we’re very excited.
