    (PDF/EPUB) [The Lurker at the Threshold] ↠ August Derleth This novel though sometimes billed as being written by HP Lovecraft is really instead almost entirely authored by August Derleth working from notes and story fragments left by Lovecraft It does have the feel of Lovecraft for the most part though with maybe a little less of his sometimes purple prose and also included actual dialogue something Lovecraft wasn’t known for but did indeed include other Lovecraftia

Most of the reviews that have been posted so far seem to be from Lovecraft purists who object to Derleth s creation of a novella from a 1200 word sketch by HPL We should maybe bear in mind the debt that Lovecraftians owe to Derleth He founded Arkham House specifically to keep HPL s memory alive and to bring his work to a larger audience than the readers of Weird Tales MagazineSo let s try to approach Lurker from another angle Of course Derleth is different But he s good too The character that holds much of the narrative together is uamis Derleth does a sound job of tracing his malignant influence Derleth also makes good use of Lovecraft s literary apparatus his cosmology his imaginary New England landscape the sights sounds and even the smells of the Lovecraft landscape gambrel roofs dereliction and decay you know all that stuff If you don t like Derleth s treatment you don t have to read the book As for me I am at present re reading it for about the tenth time I like it

This book starts out well enough but runs too long through dull exposition to a formulaic finish An experienced reader will suspect early on that this book wasn t written by Lovecraft but his publisher August Derleth Maybe the first give away is the uncharacteristically heavy use of period and regional dialects or maybe it is the 1945 copyright for August Derleth in the front matter Whatever tipped me off I then used the all knowing Wiki to read up on the book and sure enough less than 25% of the writing was Lovecraft s comprising probably no than sketches for a story The other 975% came from the pen of the far less marketable Derleth And it shows The book begins well enough with the standard issue haunted Massachusetts town with its dark past shadowy residents and just returned prodigal scion of an occult dynasty At some point the author trots out a comprehensive list of every single Big Name creature in the Cthulhu mythos and the reader suddenly feels that rather than reading a Lovecraft story with its eerie economy they re taking in the written euivalent of Destroy All Monsters WrestleMania or a commercial for the MUSCLE collector toys The narrative then gets bogged down in tedious exposition about the systematic nature of the Cthulhu mythos and of the relation of the various Elder Gods and Great Old Ones to the elements and to the forces of good and evil Apparently Derleth s Lovecraft project was to systematize the original fragments and in so doing to suck out most of the juice Iah Yog Sothoth Nyarlathotep Azathoth F nag n R lyh Bl ah Bl ah Bl ah
