O Mundo Fantástico de H. P. Lovecraft – The Inside Front Flap

O Mundo Fantástico de H. P. Lovecraft – The Inside Front Flap

         O norte-americano H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) é reconhecido atualmente como um dos maiores escritores de horror do século XX, sendo admirado por muitos aficionados ao gênero. Seu estilo e temática inconfundíveis influenciaram muitos escritores ao longo do tempo. Ironicamente, em vida teve apenas um livro publicado; publicou muito em revistas praticamente desconhecidas na época, como a hoje famosa Weird Tales. Entretanto, mesmo com o pouco reconhecimento, escreveu obras que são reimpressas até hoje. Foi de August Derleth e Donald Wandrei, dois de seus amigos e correspondentes, a iniciativa de preservar sua obra em livros encadernados, com a fundação da editora Arkham House logo após a morte do autor. Apesar disso a fama de Lovecraft só veio, de forma mais abrangente, em meados da década de 1980 com o advento do RPG Call of Cthulhu, baseado numa de suas histórias mitológicas. A essa parte mais aterradora da obra de Lovecraft convencionou-se chamar de “Mitos de Cthulhu” – um conjunto de lendas antigas e superstições aliadas a conceitos de ficção científica.

         Levando uma vida simples, devido a privações financeiras, e com uma saúde instável, Lovecraft passou quase toda sua vida cercado de poucos amigos na cidade histórica de Providence – Estado de Rhode Island, na Nova Inglaterra, sua amada terra natal e fonte -junto com seus pesadelos – de mais de uma centena de contos.

         Suas histórias abriram novos campos de interesse no mundo da expressão literária. Hoje em dia, muitos acadêmicos acham difícil catalogar sua obra, seja como ‘horror’, ‘suspense’ ou mesmo ‘ficção científica’; seus fãs e admiradores ao redor do mundo acham que é tudo isso e também um pouco mais. Seu nome tornou-se uma lenda, e em torno dele criou-se uma espécie de culto esotérico.

          Translation:          The American H. P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) is currently recognized as one of the greatest horror writers of the 20th. century, being admired by many aficionados of the genre. His unmistakable style and distinctive themes influenced many writers over time. Ironically, in life he had only one book published; published in magazines virtually unknown at the time, such as the now famous Weird Tales. However, even with the little recognition, wrote works that are reprinted to this day. It was August Derleth and Donald Wandrei, two of his friends and correspondents, that had the initiative to preserve his work in bound books, with the founding of the publishing house Arkham House soon after the author’s death. Despite this the fame of Lovecraft just came, more broadly, in the mid-1980’s with the advent of RPG Call of Cthulhu, based on one of his mythological stories. The most terrifying of Lovecraft’s work is usually called “Cthulhu Mythos” – a set of ancient legends and superstitions combined with the concepts of science fiction.

         Leading a simple life, due to financial hardships, and with an unstable health, Lovecraft spent almost his entire life surrounded by a few friends in the historic city of Providence, Rhode Island State, in New England, his beloved homeland and source – along with his nightmares – of more than a hundred short stories.

         His stories have opened new fields of interest in the world of literary expression. Nowadays, many scholars find it difficult to catalog his work, either as ‘horror’, ‘thriller’ or even ‘science fiction’; his fans and admirers around the world think it’s all that and also a little more. His name became a legend, and around him formed a kind of esoteric cult.

OMFDHPL22 Editora Clock Tower Logo

Boa noite amigos! Quero deixar aqui registrado meus agradecimentos a todos que ajudaram esse projeto de um livro bem elaborado sobre a vida e as obras de H.P. Lovecraft a se tornar realidade. Tudo começou com uma ideia simples há alguns anos que ganhou forma. E as colaborações e incentivos foram tão grandes que nos permitiu lançar o livro através de um selo próprio a EDITORA CLOCK TOWER, cujo logo você está vendo ao lado. Uma editora livre que nasceu para ser independente de interesses comerciais sórdidos, entretanto sua continuidade depende do sucesso desse livro, e para isso, conto com a colaboração de todos vocês para que possam divulgar esse nosso primeiro livro, fazendo resenhas em blogs pessoais ou de amigos, comentado sobre o livro em fóruns, rede sociais, propondo matérias em revistas, jornais, mesmo que seja uma primeira impressão antes mesmo de completar sua leitura, enfim… Todos têm a ganhar, pois se tudo der certo no futuro pretendemos lançar livros com obras esquecidas de escritores famosos do passado, desenterrando muita coisa boa que está perdida… Fique a vontade para utilizar fotos e matérias da nossa homepage para eventual divulgação do livro. Um grande abraço a todos, espero que gostem e tenham um ótima leitura, pois esse livro foi feito para você!

Good evening friends!  I want to leave my thanks registered here to everyone who helped this project of a well-written book about the life and works of H. P. Lovecraft to become a reality. It all started with a simple idea a few years ago that took shape. And the collaborations and incentives were so great that they allowed us to launch the book through a Publisher’s own label EDITORA CLOCK TOWER, whose logo you’re seeing on the side. A publisher that was born to be independent of sordid commercial interests, however its continuation depends on the success of this book, and for this, I count on the cooperation of all of you so we can publicize this our first book, doing reviews on personal blogs of friends, commenting on the book in forums, social networking, offering stories in magazines, newspapers, even if it is a first impression even before completing your reading, anyway… All stand to gain, because if all goes well in the future we plan to launch books with forgotten works of famous writers of the past, digging up a lot of good that is lost… Feel free to use photos and material from our homepage for eventual disclosure of the book. A big hug to everyone, I hope you enjoy and have a great read, because this book was made for you!

O Mundo Fantástico de H. P. Lovecraft – The Inside Rear Flap

         Esta obra vem, portanto, preencher uma lacuna para o público brasileiro – quer pelo zelo e esmero nas traduções, ou pelo cuidado quanto à revisão, notas e estética do livro como um todo.

         Lovecraft faleceu jovem, aos 46 anos, vítima de câncer intestinal, deixando um legado de histórias fantásticas e de sombras jamais imaginadas antes.

         DENÍLSON E. RICCI é o organizador desta obra e reside na cidade de Jundiaí-SP, sua terra natal. Admirador de longa data de histórias fantásticas, conheceu a obra de H.P. Lovecraft inusitadamente em meados de 2003, quando encontrou um livro raro do autor num baú do falecido avô de uma antiga amiga. Desde então tem se dedicado com empenho a pesquisa sobre o autor e organização do sítio http://www.sitelovecraft.com, um dos mais visitados do Brasil sobre a vida e obra deste grande escritor.

          Translation:

          This work has, therefore, filled a gap for the Brazilian audience – either by zeal and care in the translations, or by carefully regarding the review, notes, and aesthetics of the book as a whole.

         Lovecraft died young, at the age of 46 years, victim of intestinal cancer, leaving a legacy of fantastic stories and shadows never imagined before.

         Denílson E. Ricci is the organizer of this work and resides in the city of Jundiaí, São Paulo, his homeland. Longtime admirer of fantastic stories, he met the work of H. P. Lovecraft unusually in mid-2003, when he found a rare book from the author in a treasure chest of the deceased grandfather of an old friend. He has since been dedicated with commitment to research on the author and organization of the site http://www.sitelovecraft.com, one of the most visited in Brazil on the life and work of this great writer.

O Mundo Fantástico de H. P. Lovecraft – The Rear Cover

O Mundo Fantástico de H. P. Lovecraft – The Rear Cover

O Mestre do Horror e da Fantasia

          Este livro é uma antologia essencial de contos, poesias e ensaios que tornaram o escritor norte-americano H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) um dos autores cult mais reconhecidos e respeitados no mundo inteiro.

         Ao perceber o anseio dos leitores brasileiros apreciadores do gênero ficção fantástica de horror por um livro de melhor qualidade, frente aos poucos do autor até então lançados no mercado editorial nacional, amigos do Site Lovecraft (www.sitelovecraft.com), sob coordenação de Denílson E. Ricci, se propuseram a produzir um livro da mais alta qualidade, no que se refere a projeto gráfico, tradução, revisão e tudo o mais que compõe este volume. Assim, desejamos ao menos tentar dar a conhecer não só o trabalho, mas também um pouco da vida tão intrigante que teve este escritor no início do século XX.

         De O Chamado de Cthulhu, um verdadeiro clássico de horror, passando por A Sombra em Innsmouth, a história de um povoado de pescadores atormentados por uma força misteriosa, o leitor terá uma amostra do melhor estilo de terror psicológico, dos perigos no trato com o sobrenatural e de personagens desorientadas que são jogadas no abismo da loucura. As misteriosas histórias de Lovecraft seduzem pelo clima que inspiram, no qual há ausência de sustos baratos frente ao contato sempre presente com as forças ocultas que estão a nossa volta. O livro traz, também, trabalhos inéditos traduzidos pela primeira vez em nosso idioma, introdução abrangente, além de seus melhores ensaios e poesias. Preparem-se para uma viagem fantástica, na qual o caminho é tortuoso e o destino mais incerto ainda.

“Cresci com Lovecraft e a sua obra continua presente no meu trabalho.” – Peter Jackson, diretor de ‘O Senhor dos Anéis’ “O melhor escritor de terror do século XX.” – Stephen King, famoso escritor de ficção e horror “Lovecraft é um autor perturbante. Criador de um mundo cósmico de terror cuja única saída é a insanidade.” – Clive Barker, escritor consagrado e diretor do filme ‘Hellraiser’

          Translation:

The Master of Horror and Fantasy

         This book is an essential anthology of short stories, poetry and essays that made the American writer H. P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) one of the most recognized and respected cult authors worldwide.

         Realizing the desire of the Brazilian fans readers connoisseurs of the genre of fantastic fiction horror books for a better quality, compared to a few of the author’s so far released in the national publishing market, friends of Lovecraft site (www.sitelovecraft.com), coordinated by Denílson E. Ricci, set out to produce a book of the highest quality, with regard to graphic design, translation, editing and everything else that makes up this volume. So, we want to at least try to get to know not only the work, but also a little of the so intriguing life that this writer had in the early twentieth century.

         Of The Call of Cthulhu, a true classic horror, through The Shadow in Innsmouth, the story of a fishing village plagued by a mysterious force, the reader will have a sample of the best psychological horror style of the dangers in dealing with the supernatural and of misguided characters who are thrown into the abyss of madness. The mysterious allure of Lovecraft stories that inspire a climate, in which there are no cheap scares against the ever present contact with hidden forces that are all around us. The book also brings new works translated for the first time in our language, a comprehensive introduction, in addition to his best essays and poetry. Get ready for a fantastic journey in which the path is tortuous and fate more uncertain still.

“I grew up with Lovecraft and his work continues to be present in my work.” – Peter Jackson, director of ‘The Lord of the Rings’ “The best horror writer of the twentieth century.” – Stephen King, famous writer of fiction and horror “Lovecraft is a disturbing author. Creator of a cosmic world of terror whose only way out is insanity.” – Clive Barker, renowned writer and director of the film ‘Hellraiser’

  1. Fantastic! Congratulations to you, dear Will! Sharing on Facebook.

    • cthulhuwho1 says:

      Hey Wilum,

      Thank You for the “Congratulations!”

      You of all people know that any time my creations are linked to Lovecraft, I’m like a happy father seeing his offspring doing well in life!

      Will

  2. Chris Jarocha-Ernst says:

    Congratulations on the use of your photos, but no wonder — they are remarkably clean and well staged. The volume itself looks to be a great introduction to HPL, with most of his classic stories, with one jarring exception: “The Quest of Iranon”? There’s no accounting for taste, but still, this is a particularly whiny piece. I would have chosen “The Other Gods” or even “The Doom That Came to Sarnath” as a more representative piece of Dunsanian fiction, or even “The White Ship”, if the idea of outgrowing the sense of wonder was the theme desired.

    • cthulhuwho1 says:

      Hey Chris,

      Thank You for the “Congratulations!”

      As a life-long fan, any time my creations are linked to Lovecraft, I’m like a happy father seeing his offspring doing well in life!

      The book is a wonderful volume; which may be followed by another that will include more of everyone’s favorite tales.

      Will
