This book gathers together a collection of twelve essays from the first year or so of Innsmouth News.
Innsmouth News is the in-house fanzine of the Innsmouth Book Club podcast, a show which covers all aspects of Lovecraftian and weird fiction, film, gaming and art.
The essays, all written by Robert Poyton, cover a wide range of topics. From Lovecraftian sites in the UK, to the Roots of Cthulhu. From Tolkien's use of class, to screen depictions of Robert E Howard's Conan the Barbarian.
There's a look at Deep Ones, ghouls, Lovecraft's use of music, the Howardian Mythos, HPL on TV and more. All rounded off by a guide to Lovecraft's Providence, and an essay from the Old Gent himself on writing weird fiction. Paperback, 154 pages
