This curious boy-man was Henry Everett McNeil, and he was Lovecraft's good friend. In his walking tours of New York's secret slums, McNeil opened new doors in Lovecraft's macabre imagination and may have been the model for "He". This is the first book on McNeil and his career.

The essay is accompanied by a selection of McNeil's works.< Less
