Summary
The tales of H. P. Lovecraft have influenced many of today's writers, including Stephen King, yet during his short life Lovecraft did not enjoy fame. Instead, he lived almost unknown in Rhode Island and New York, where he wrote macabre stories, poems, literary criticism, and essays. These comprehensive books about single authors are biographies in the strict sense that they do not pretend to be critical or evaluative sources. They provide a broad yet insightful look at each author s life and how it relates to his or her writing. Among the writers included in the series are Bram Stoker, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Isaac Asimov, and Jules Verne. The Poe and Lovecraft books appear to be factually sound and are easily accessible to young readers. Both contain interesting personal as well as professional information about the authors, and teen readers will find themselves engaged with the style as well as the content. Unlike many biographies about writers, these texts are not so focused on the body of work produced by each writer as to overshadow the writers as unique individuals. Instead the texts have a more personal quality, drawing amply on author correspondences and anecdotal information. Students will take to the almost casual approach of presentation and will enjoy the ease with which each biography is written
