Here’s a quick and dirty translation, giving the gist of the scholarly contents in the new Italian journal Antares No.8, 2014 — a freely available H.P. Lovecraft special issue

Editorial: the Copernican revolution of H.P. Lovecraft.

Lovecraft, or the inconsistency of the real. [?]

Lovecraft and the traditions of New England.

The Key and the Mountain: the dream symbolism in Lovecraft.

HPL and the FBI: the anthrax hoaxes [seems to relate to the cases of hoax letters in Syracuse, USA]

Lovecraft, the quest of the genius who came from outside. [?]

The fall of Sarnath and the fall of Rome.

The “doors of perception” and the “cracks in the Great Wall” [possibly on HPL as the forerunner of psychedelic drug literature?]

“The Master of Cosmicism” – an interview with S.T. Joshi.

“The fantastic is the exception, not the rule” – an interview with Giuseppe Lippi.
