Atheist Shrugged

H. P. Lovecraft: Against the World, Against Life by Michel Houellebecq

translated by Dorna Khazeni
Believer Books, 2005
(247 pages, $18.00, paperback)

It is remarkable that anyone still remembers Howard Phillips Lovecraft. A writer of obscure supernatural horror stories never published outside of cheap pulp magazines, an introverted and impoverished misanthrope known only to a tiny circle of friends, H. P. Lovecraft died in 1937 fully expecting to leave no literary legacy whatsoever.
