About the books
A Haunted Mind
On the heels of his long series of awardwinning titles, the world-famous Irish author and historian, Dr. Bob Curran, is presenting a fresh, detailed, enlightened look at life and the hair-raising, dark stories and theories of H.P. Lovecraft. Enlivened with spectacular illustrations by Ian Daniels,
A Haunted Mind: Inside the Dark, Twisted World of H.P. Lovecraft explores what motivated Lovecraft––revealing a personal life as strange as his creations—and drove him to create his terrible cosmos. Based on extensive research into folklore and history, Curran investigates Lovecraftian mysteries and answers many questions, such as:
What sort of a man was Lovecraft? what in his odd life were the inspirations for his terrible universe?
Do some of the Mythos books actually exist?
Are there known texts that parallel such books?
Did some of the horrifying creatures originate in ancient, previously worshipped gods?
Did Lovecraft have access to knowledge that has been denied to the wider world? Arguably no American writer has had more of an impact on the modern horror scene than Lovecraft, the man who created the Cthulhu Mythos, with its strange gods, eerie places, and forbidden books. An historian who has for decades written and lectured on the arcane and the mysterious, in A Haunted Mind, Dr. Curran lays out previously unknown and unexamined Lovecraft material. For Lovecraft’s devoted fans, for gameplayers, and for readers who are just stepping into this bizarre world,
A Haunted Mind is a must-have to accompany all of the Lovecraft lore.
Just When You Thought It Was Safe to Go out Vampires Lurk in the United States In time for Halloween, the newest in a long series of award winning titles by the internationally known Irish historian, Dr. Bob Curran, American Vampires: Their True Bloody History From New York to California comes covered in a book jacket dripping with blood. Famous for decades as an expert on the arcane and the mysterious, with nearly forty books on Celtic lore and Irish fairies, zombies and werewolves, vanished cities and ghosts, Curran now delves into American vampire lore. Complex creatures, the vampires he discovers in North Carolina are different from those in South Carolina and in New York State. Not all of them are human in form . . . and they cannot necessarily be warded off by a crucifix or a bulb of garlic.
He turns up the dreaded creatures of the night in the Louisiana bayous, on the back streets of Manhattan, the hills of Tennessee, the Sierras of California, the deserts of Arizona, and more locations in America where even local residents are unaware of what lurks in their midst. Adding to the cold shivers in American Vampires are the dramatic illustrations by Ian Daniels, an artist whose works create the dark atmospheres of ancient myth, ghosts and dreamlike horrors. (Daniels created the nightmare producing illustrations for Curran’s bestseller, Zombies.)
