H. P. Lovecraft: Letters From New York is volume 2 of the "Lovecraft Letters" series, which compiles correspondence written by the famous occult and horror author H.P. Lovecraft in 1922, 1924, 1925, and 1926. Most of the text is based directly upon existing manuscript sources; some is from the so-called Arkham House transcripts of Lovecraft's letters, which were prepared under August Derleth's watchful eye for use in the "Selected Letters". A few black-and-white sketches or diagrams from the letters themselves are reprinted, though for the most part H. P. Lovecraft: Letters From New York consists of straightforward text typed in a readable font. A glossary of names and an index allow for quick and easy reference in this absorbing close look into the mind's eye of a creative genius.
