H. P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, August Nemo: 3 books to know Weird West
Welcome to the3 Books To Knowseries, our idea is to help readers learn about fascinating topics through three essential and relevant books.
These carefully selected works can be fiction, non-fiction, historical documents or even biographies.
We will always select for you three great works to instigate your mind, this time the topic is:Weird West.
- The Mound - H. P. Lovecraft
- The Horror from the Mound by Robert E. Howard
- The Dead Remember by Robert E. HowardWeird West is a subgenre that combines elements of the Western with another genre, usually horror, occult, fantasy, or science fiction. When supernatural menaces of horror fiction are injected into a Western setting, it creates the horror Western. Writer G.W. Thomas has described how the two combine: "Unlike many other cross-genre tales, the weird Western uses both elements but with very little loss of distinction. The Western setting is decidedly 'Western' and the horror elements are obviously 'horror.'"
This is one of many books in the series 3 Books To Know. If you liked this book, look for the other titles in the series, we are sure you will like some of the topics.
