Lovecraft's Legacy: 2006 (Shadows in the Asylum)

The presence of Lovecraft still exudes a powerful influence today. This book, a clear allusion to The Strange Case of Charles Dexter Ward, is Shadows in the Asylum: The Case Files of Dr. Charles Marsh, by D.A. Stern. Emmis Books, 2006.

The 20th century became the visual age, and this certainly influences this book. There is a lot of text, but it is all kerneled into lots of sketches and photoshop elements. Tom Peters and others sort of pioneered this high graphics, get your attention, look with business books.

I did not get to read this book, but there are a number of online reviews of it.
