Tour de Lovecraft: The Destinations


Kenneth Hite guided readers through H. P. Lovecraft’s horror plots and themes in his earlier book Tour de Lovecraft: The Tales. Now, expanding on his “Lost in Lovecraft” column in Weird Tales magazine, he conducts a second tour of Lovecraft’s settings: from Arkham to Antarctica, and from New York City to Hyperspace. Tour de Lovecraft: The Destinations drives the hidden routes connecting seemingly unrelated tales. It follows Lovecraft’s tracks into the uncanny landscapes of his fiction, and reads the eldritch signs on the Master’s map.

Hite climbs the crags of Kingsport, delves into Deep Time, and shines a light under the shadows over Innsmouth. With Hite as your driver and Tour de Lovecraft: The Destinations as your guidebook, you can’t get lost in Lovecraft even in the loneliest parts of the planet … unless you want to …
