Most of this conflict probably stems from the great difference in the two men's faith. Where Lovecraft was an atheist and quite the NietzscheWannabe, Derleth was a very religious Christian. Where Lovecraft's universe was indifferent, unsafe and directly hostile at times and, above everything, [[BlueAndOrangeMorality beyond human comprehension]], [[HumansAreSpecial humans were special]] and deeply involved in the eternal struggle between [[BlackAndWhiteMorality good and evil]] in Derleth's.

Derleth also created the ''Literature/SolarPons'' stories based around a CaptainErsatz of SherlockHolmes. Some of them make reference to Derleth's Lovecraftian writings. Along with these, Derleth also is known for his ''Sac Prairie Saga'', a series of fiction, historical fiction, poetry, and non-fiction naturalist works designed to memorialize life in the Wisconsin he knew.
