Eighty Years of Arkham House : A History and Bibliography
by S. T. Joshi




Overview -
Arkham House, based in Sauk City, Wisconsin, is the most famous small press in the field of weird fiction. Since 1939, it has been a pioneering publisher of the work of H. P. Lovecraft, Clark Ashton Smith, Robert E. Howard, Ray Bradbury, Fritz Leiber, Ramsey Campbell, and many other titans of horror, fantasy, and supernatural fiction. In 1999, S. T. Joshi, a leading authority on weird fiction (and the author or editor of 6 Arkham House books), published Sixty Years of Arkham House. In this new and expanded edition, Joshi charts Arkham House's publications right down to the present day. In this definitive compilation, Joshi lists the entire contents of all Arkham House publications (as well as those of its sub-imprints, Mycroft & Moran and Stanton & Lee). He provides an illuminating history of the firm's eight decades of publishing, and also includes three rare essays by August Derleth-co-founder (with Donald Wandrei) of Arkham House-that discuss the status of the firm. In addition, there is a thorough index of names and titles. No devotee of Arkham House will want to be without this invaluable reference work.
