The Author Out of Spae

If you’re still wincing over the LOVECRAFT SUCKS bandwagon that seems to be rolling through town these days and need some more things to read, as the Literary Saloon has pointed out and some people I know will peruse with great interest, John Banville weighs in on the upcoming Houellebecq Lovecraft bio. Banville sics the dog twice, so to speak, on Lovecraft’s eccentric spelling, but spends more time trying to understand how much of an influence Howard Philips was on Houellebecq.
