* Elena Glasberg (2008), “Who Goes There? Science, fiction, and belonging in Antarctica”, Journal of Historical Geography, 34, 2008, pp. 639–657. (Only mentions Poe and Lovecraft in passing. It does, however, open with a good outline of the pre-war ideological developments in ‘the Byrd view’ of Antarctica between “At The Mountains of Madness” (1931) and “Who Goes There?” (1938), which may be relevant to those considering the reception of “Mountains” in the 1930s and 40s).

* Amy Ireland (2013), “Noise: An Ontology of the Avant-garde”. (Paper for the 2013 conference ‘Modern Soundscapes’ run the Australasian Association of Literature / Centre for Modernism Studies. Examines sound/noise in “At The Mountains of Madness” in order to weigh the claims of two philosophers, Kant and Nick Land, and from this develops ideas about the 20th century avant-garde’s use of noise as an “exaltation of the void and the melting of unstable frontiers”).
