abstract   bibtex   
This second volume of Lovecraftian Proceedings contains a wealth of cutting-edge scholarship on the dreamer from Providence, including substantial articles from both recipients of the S. T. Joshi Endowed Research Fellowship for H. P. Lovecraft at Brown University.  Lovecraftian Proceedings fosters exploration of Lovecraft as a rationalist who created an elaborate cosmic mythology, and how this mythology was influenced by, and has come to influence, numerous other authors and artists. The papers which comprise Lovecraftian Proceedings were presented during a key part of the NecronomiCon Providence convention, the Dr. Henry Armitage Memorial Symposium. TABLE OF CONTENTS Introduction             Dennis P.
