The Reviewer as Anthologist

Matthew Carpenter is a doctor, a rheumatologist to be exact.

But, when he isn’t feeling up patients’ joints and checking out “sed rates”, he keeps an eye on modern Lovecraft literature. [Correction: his bio in A Lonely and Curious Country says he’s a radiation oncologist.]

When I was discovering that modern Lovecraft takeoffs could actually be good, I discovered him as an Amazon reviewer whose judgment and breadth of knowledge I could trust. He’s also a regular on Lovecraft eZine’s weekly talk show.

So, I was pleased to see he has turned his hand to editing a collection of Lovecraftian fiction: A Lonely and Curious Country: Tales from the Lands of Lovecraft.
