Why Lovecraft Still Matters: The Magical Power of Transformative Fiction
“Though a half century dead, a number of elements make Lovecraft’s work more relevant today than ever: his bravery, his antinomianism, his understanding of how the transformative power of an object (especially a book) can link the realms of imagination and reality, his sense of the cosmic, and finally, above all and unifying all, his insistence on the primacy of the imagination.”
