Arkham House – Weird Fiction since 1939: When it comes to championing 'weird fiction,' Arkham House leads the way. Founded in tiny Sauk City, Wisconsin, (population 3,109 in 2000), Arkham will always be famous for printing the work of H.P. Lovecraft – the king of weird fiction.
This publisher's books are highly sought-after by collectors who adore horror, supernatural fiction and writing generally designed to scare the bejesus out of people. Arkham's memorable bindings have also played a major role in adding to the collectability of these books. Most print runs were limited to a few thousand copies – further enhancing the collectible status.
