Not In Kansas Anymore by Christine Wicker

You can read a full review and comment by Christine Wicker at my generic blog.

For the Lovecraft blog, I have to report that at the end of a long passage of how J.R.R. Tolkein's readers associated themselves with his mythological creations, she mentions Ursula LeGuin, Marion Zimmer Bradley and our favorite writer: "H.P. Lovecraft also captured the imagination of readers."

Yes, indeed he has!

Wicker has taken a journalistic slant at the mythical and magical in today's America. Red states or blue states - magic is everywhere and she has exposited and unveiled many of the interesting facets and dark corners of the magical world.

Buy her book! Read it! You won't be sorry. I think Ech Pi El would have loved it, too.
