Behold, the world's most premiere scholar of H.P. Lovecraft's works.>What does /lit/ think about him?
>>21029879From what I understand about Lovecraft, he certainly wouldn't appreciate the irony. Personally I don't give a shit about either of them. What's your thoughtful analysis, OP?
>>21029879>What does /lit/ think about him?He's a pretty cool dude. I have his Clark Ashton Smith selection that he did for Penguin. He's a walking encyclopedia not only of Lovecraft but also of pulp and horror in general. I want to read his Lovecraft book, I'm aware he heavily criticized the Houellebecq one.

>>21029879On paper I should hate him for being an Indian academic. But he has a level headed take on everything he writes about.
