H.P. Lovecraft: Flight From Madness: An essay on HPL by Donald Tyson which focuses on HPL’s fear of going insane. Also check out his book: The Dream World of H. P.

Lovecraft expressed disdain for magic and religion, and most of his biographers have dismissed the mystical side of his nature. This book redresses this imbalance.
