No "eldritch horror" to be found here, but it’s a book worth perusal for Lovecraft fans.

This is a collection of HPL’s critiques of amateur writers who were affiliated with the United Amateur. Unfortunately, none of the amateur poetry or prose which Lovecraft mentions are included in this book.

Good, but not what I had been hoping for actually. These are primarily crtiques written by Lovecraft of other writers submissions and while interesting do not ever delve into his own works or mythos. From a literary standpoint it is intriguing to gear the criticism he lays upon many of his contemporaries. The work is also useful in grasping a better feeling for the higher standard of language to which he aspired in his writing. For the true fan it is worth a read.
A fine colleciton strongly recommended.

This is an excellent collection of HPL’s early non-fiction work as it appeared in the “United Amateur.” These short pieces reveal the depth and breadth of HPL’s interests.

I’m a completionist and had to have this for my Lovecraft collection. Good stuff.

I love HP Lovecraft. The stories are full of well-thought descriptions that give you an amazing view of another world.
Obscure but valuable

This is a very obscure and abstruse book but I enjoyed it. The Amazon review format has a 20-word minimum so I am writing this sentence in order to meet that requirement.
5 for free

5 start for being a free download. Can’t rate the book itself because I haven’t read it. I’m sure it’s a good read being that it’s by a classic author.
