The New York Times bestselling book behind the HBO Series from J.J. Abrams, Misha Green and Jordan Peele (Director of Get Out)

A chimerical blend of magic, power, hope, and freedom that stretches across time, touching diverse members of two black families, Lovecraft Country by Matt Ruff is a devastating kaleidoscopic portrait of racism – the terrifying specter that continues to haunt us today.

Chicago, 1954. When his father Montrose goes missing, twenty-two year-old Army veteran Atticus Turner embarks on a road trip to New England to find him, accompanied by his Uncle George – publisher of The Safe Negro Travel Guide – and his childhood friend Letitia. On their journey to the manor of Mr. Braithwhite – heir to the estate that owned one of Atticus’s ancestors – they encounter both mundane terrors of white America and malevolent spirits that seem straight out of the weird tales George devours.

At the manor, Atticus discovers his father in chains, held prisoner by a secret cabal named the Order of the Ancient Dawn – led by Samuel Braithwhite and his son Caleb – which has gathered to orchestrate a ritual that shockingly centers on Atticus. And his one hope of salvation may be the seed of his – and the whole Turner clan’s – destruction.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Another "only Matt Ruff could do it" production. Lovecraft Country takes the unlikeliest of premises and spins it into a funny, fast, exciting, and affecting read - Neal Stephenson, author of Snow Crash and Cryptonomicon

At every turn, Ruff has great fun pitting mid-twentieth-century horror and sci-fi clichés against the banal and ever present bigotry of the era. - New York Times Book Review

A brilliantly conceived story brilliantly executed - Christopher Moore, author of Lamb and A Dirty Job

Lovecraft Country doesn't just race along, it tears, demanding that you keep turning its pages without interruption - Cory Doctorow, author of Little Brother

“True horror lies closer to home”

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a review.

Firstly, you don't have to be a Lovecraft aficionado to enjoy this book at all - the inter-connected stories within sit very loosely in... More
