Midnight Rambles: H. P. Lovecraft in Gotham

After months of hints, whispers, and allusions, I am honored to announce the release date of my second book. Midnight Rambles: H. P. Lovecraft in Gotham will hit bookstore shelves on November 7, 2023!

Although an overlooked chapter in H. P. Lovecraft’s life, New York City shaped him as a writer and an individual. His experiences and encounters in New York revealed both admirable and lamentable aspects of Lovecraft’s personal character. This included the inflexible racism and xenophobia that continue to tarnish his genre-bending fiction and literary legacy. In Midnight Rambles, readers will discover the adventures, mishaps, and relationships of the twentieth-century’s most influential horror writer in America’s creative capital.

Stay tuned for further details and news in the coming months. In the meantime, Midnight Rambles is available for pre-order.

Pre-publication expenses are a genuine concern for any author. If you want to support the book (or my writing in general), consider making a donation.

Hope to see you in the fall!

Lovecraft and several of his associates for material for my biography on the weird fiction writer and his New York City years. As with any research project, a new question arose for each one answered.
