THE MIND PARASITES.

Sauk City: Arkham House: Publishers, 1967. Octavo, cloth. First edition. Text offset from plates used for the 1967 British Arthur Barker edition. A novel with a homage to Lovecraft and his Cthulhu mythos. "Probing the reasons behind a close friend's suicide, archeologist Gilbert Austin discovers the existence of "mind parasites" ostensibly products of an ancient race [the Tsathogguans], that inhibit man's creativity and drain his psychic vitality." "...Wison's imaginative harnessing of Lovecraftian imagery to his philosophy of human possibility is challenging and stimulating." - Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror 5-79. Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 4-503. Survey of Science Fiction Literature III, pp. 1401-06. Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 4-232.
