Of Science and Swords Bookshop
Of Science and Swords is one of Australia's premier fantasy and science fiction bookstores. Their subtitle is "Books from another world." That may well be the case. There are non-Euclidean dimensional portals secretly if poorly hidden behind shelves. Strange arms come out of black holes to grab back the books! They haven't finished reading ...
It is the P'rea belief that Smiles Books is Australia's most fabulous second-hand bookseller, because the books are old world and they are fantasy. Bookseller extraordinaire Nick Smiles, boasts pulp magazines and weird poetry volumes from the 1800s, rubbing shoulders with fantastic adventures from the twentieth century onwards. He has Lovecraft and Smith titles. He is also an Australian Tolkien expert. Perhaps you might like some books that you can't get this side of The Milky Way? You may find this bookseller all Smiles!

Bad Dreams Review
A review of The Land of Bad Dreams posted on David B. Silva's HELLNOTES by Sheila Merritt.
California Madman Digs DownUnder And Comes Through On the Other Side!
Will Hart's photostream and miscellaneous Lovecraftiana on the web is an awe-inspiring thing. From Richard L. Tierney sculptures to the streets of Lovecraft's Providence, to the readings of poems and fiction (by Lovecraft and Tierney), to the photos of fabled authors and esoteric conventions, his website is a wizard's cave of exotic Lovecraftian delights.
Chad Muller - Cthonis matters!
Chad Muller is a fellow publisher who contacted me recently. He has put forward the rather strange and marvellous AIM HIGH of Joseph A. West. West is an elderly gent of the American mid-West and AIM HIGH is his volume full of astonishing and irreverent verse, artwork and prose, a lifetime's work of weird fun and fantasy. Chad personally hand sews and binds his books, a kind of cottage industry unto himself. There's shoold be more of 'em!
Collected Letters of Edgar Allan Poe
These sumptuous volumes of beauty collect the letters of Edgar Allan Poe. Published by Gordian Press in 2008 with much additional material on the first edition (1966).
P'rea's great friend at Hippocampus Press, Derrick Hussey, is a man after the mantle of out-Arkhaming Arkham House itself! His outstanding and expanding array of H. P. Lovecraft-related items and his gathering of other authors of cosmic repute under the Hippocampus Press spiderweb insignia have become legendary in double quick time. One can feel Lovecraft's head in the ether nodding approval at Derrick's work. And his work is not yet done!
Lovecraft eZine Triumph!
The Lovecraft eZine is a lively affair. It is run by Mike Davis (who threatens to make the stars come just right ...)
Have the arcane wisdom to get onto Miskatonic Books. It is an intense H. P. Lovecraft related source of wonder, and fabulist book dealer. Tell them Boris sent you.
Mythos Books, LLC
Mythos Books, LLC (which could mean Lovely Lovecraftian Creations) is a mysterious bookseller and publisher dealing with all things Lovecraft. See what outstanding rarities (such as ill-famed tomes, treatises on elder devilry, broken off star-stones, etc etc) you can drag back from there!

It produces its flagship Star*Line magazine quarterly, the fabulous annual Rhysling Anthology, and a variety of awards for excellence in imaginative verse of every striped and rouladed colour.
Tentaclii: H. P. Lovecraft Blog
Tentaclii is the place. It is a site devoted to things Lovecraftian. It is another information forced-march, a little like the march Randolph Carter takes in The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath when flanked by fabulous blasphemies out of eternity he is led to meet Nyarlathotep. Swallow the dream syrup. Enjoy the ride.
The Amazing World of S. T. Joshi
The astonishing S. T. Joshi is the world's foremost authority on H. P. Lovecraft, and recently published I AM PROVIDENCE: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF H. P. LOVECRAFT, a massive, nearly 1200-page biography of the great fantasy man. Joshi's tireless devotion to the study of the weird and supernatural fantasy genre, amongst so many other equally dedicated pursuits, is in its scope as epic as it is legendary, and in its quality of rendition as exhaustive as it is insightful and thorough.
The H. P. Lovecraft Archive
The H. P. Lovecraft Archive may be the most dynamic Lovecraft site on the whole internet and planet. The links to the literature of Lovecraft, on Lovecraft, to unearthly places, and to places also terrene which yield up their uncanny and ancient wisdoms of Lovecraftiana for all, are not to be missed.
