S.T. Joshi’s Lovecraft biography I Am Providence is now set for a 2021 Russian translation, reportedly from major publisher Eksmo. Apparently Eksmo also has a strong line in fantasy and science-fiction, and recently produced an arty pocket-book edition of “The Call of Cthulhu” in Russian, so should be well placed to promote the book.

David J. Goodwin, author of the non-fiction Left Bank of the Hudson: Jersey City and the Artists of 111 1st Street (2017) has also announced a partial new biography…

Lovecraft & New York: My Second Book … will chronicle Lovecraft’s experiences in Gotham and discuss his lifelong relationship with cities. … The book is several years away.

“Gotham”? No, Lovecraft was not secretly resurrected and rejuvenated as the 1939 Batman… it’s just a nick-name for the city that’s used by locals.
