 Lovecraftian fans will know Richard Lupoff for his sometimes-whimsical mythos stories, but the writer certainly has much more to offer. In fact, a major part of his career has been Science Fiction, Mystery, and other genres.

Richard Lupoff and editor Dennis Weiler reviewed the author’s short fiction spanning the decades, and came up with this selection of the BEST OF retrospective of Richard Lupoff’s output.

A noted fan and conventioneer from his youth, Lupoff has continued his Sci-FI and fantasy output ever since the early ‘50s. The progression of his style and idiom is highlighted in this book. The Lupoff completist may have some of these stories in rotting paperbacks, but EVERY SciFi and fantasy collection must include this durable hardbound collection of the kaleidoscopic Lupoff’s work. Lovecraftiana, odd humor, and original fantasy abound. Bibliography by David Nee.
