Tour de Lovecraft: The Destinations


Kenneth Hite guided readers through H.P. Lovecraft’s horror plots and themes in his earlier book Tour de Lovecraft: The Tales. Now, expanding on his “Lost in Lovecraft” column in Weird Tales magazine, he conducts a second tour of Lovecraft’s settings: from Arkham to Antarctica, and from New York City to Hyperspace. Tour de Lovecraft: The Destinations drives the hidden routes connecting seemingly unrelated tales. It follows Lovecraft’s tracks into the uncanny landscapes of his fiction, and reads the eldritch signs on the Master’s map.

Hite climbs the crags of Kingsport, delves into Deep Time, and shines a light under the shadows over Innsmouth. With Hite as your driver and Tour de Lovecraft: The Destinations as your guidebook, you can’t get lost in Lovecraft even in the loneliest parts of the planet … unless you want to …

“An exhaustive and indispensable gazetteer of the locations relevant to Lovecraft's fiction. Hite is the man you want by your side on this tour!”

—Leslie S. Klinger, editor, New Annotated H. P. Lovecraft

“Hite uses the quantum computer of his mind to create a traveling salesman program to explore the entire Lovecraftian universe, and thus the entire universe through the lens of Lovecraft.”

—Nick Mamatas, author of Move Under Ground, from his Foreword 

“Kenneth Hite's highly entertaining and informative guide to the places in Lovecraft's fiction will please scholars and casual fans alike.”

—Peter Cannon, author of H.P. Lovecraft for Twayne’s U.S. Authors series

"Fun, insightful and all-around entertaining, you don't want to miss the best Lovecraftiana book of the year, if not the decade!"

—Chris Lackey, co-host of the H.P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast

"Every Lovecraft fan needs this book. "

—Tim Powers, author of Declare

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
