About Author
A close contemporary of HP Lovecraft, and his foremost disciple, August Derleth went on to popularize Lovecraft's work to an extent far greater than during the latter's lifetime. Founded Arkham House, for a time the only real publisher of the macabre. Also wrote much in his own right, popularized the concept of Lovecraft's 'Cthulhu Mythos' as a polarized struggle between Good and Evil, as well as classifying the quasi-deities according to elements.
