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.

Today is the 120th anniversary of H.P. Lovecraft’s birth

In terms of the New York connection, he lived in Brooklyn Heights for a spell and according to his letters and Brad Lockwood’s take in The Brooklyn Daily Eagle didn’t like it very much:

On New Years Eve, 1924 he left Flatbush, moving to 169 Clinton St. in Brooklyn Heights. Offering a snapshot of the era as well as his own psyche, Lovecraft despised the “decrepit” neighborhood (more so its immigrant residents) and may have suffered one of several nervous breakdowns in his tiny first-floor apartment on the corner of State and Clinton streets. But his imagination was never so alive: “Something unwholesome — something furtive — something vast lying subterrenely [sic] in obnoxious slumber — that was the soul of 169 Clinton St. at the edge of Red Hook, and in my great northwest corner room “The Horror at Red Hook” was written,” Lovecraft offered in a letter five years later.
