The author relates his peculiar upbringing, bizarre habits & preferences, his tragicomic careers, his role in the development of science fiction & his posthumous triumph--revealing how this strange neurotic man transformed his nightmares into the wonderful stories that have made him an influential & important literary figure.Lovecraft: A Biography is by sf writer L. Sprague de Camp, 1st published by Doubleday in 1975. The subsequent paper edition (76) from Ballantine was an abridgement, for which the author deleted some text, notes, bibliography & index. De Camp was reportedly unhappy about having to remove the end matter.

The work, a warts-&-all examination of the horror writer, was the 1st major independent biography of Lovecraft. The approach has been called frank & judicious by some, unflattering & unbalanced by others. Its been supplanted as the definitive biography by S.T. Joshis H.P. Lovecraft: A Life (96).
