Lovecraft's Providence and Adjacent Parts is a book by Henry L. P. Beckwith, Jr. detailing sites in Providence, Rhode Island related to H. P. Lovecraft. It was first published by Donald M. Grant, Publisher, Inc. in 1979 in an edition of 1,000 copies. The book grew out of a bus tour of Providence that Beckwith held as part of the World Fantasy Convention. Sites detailed include a graveyard where Edgar Allan Poe once walked and the inspiration for Lovecraft's story "The Shunned House". A revised and expanded edition was published by Grant in 1986 and again in 1990 for Lovecraft's centennial.
