A Dreamer and a Visionary
Liverpool University Press

This chapter focuses on events following Lovecraft's death on 15 March 1937. A funeral service was held on 18 March attended by small number of friends and relatives: Annie, Harry Brobst and his wife, and Annie's friend Edna Lewis. The outpouring of grief from both the weird fiction and the amateur press was instantaneous and overwhelming; Lovecraft's death also inspired a significant number of poetic tributes. The chapter then discusses how an obscure writer, who died with no book issued by a major publisher, managed to attain worldwide renown as the leading author of supernatural fiction in the twentieth century.
