I've been cited as a major source for a doctoral dissertation about Lovecraft and science. Here are the details:
Confronting the "Boundless and Hideous Unknown": Science, Categorization, and Naming in H. P. Lovecraft's Fiction, a doctoral dissertation by Matolcsy Kalman (University of Debrecen, Hungary, 2010).
Kalman cites my Knowing Fear as a major source for understanding the role of science and knowledge in horror fiction in general, and Lovecraft's relationship to both in particular. My book is used as a framework and major source for Kalman's dissertation. Read it here.
I am an author and researcher focusing on pop culture, science, and history. Bylines: New Republic, Slate, etc. There's more about me in the About Jason tab.
