As editor of the journal Crypt of Cthulhu The Cthulhu Mythos Encyclopedia Elder Signs Press. (published by Necronomicon Press) and of a series of Cthulhu Mythos anthologies,Shannon Appelcline, A Brief History of Game #3: Chaosium: 1975-present on RPG.net Icons of Horror and the Supernatural: An Encyclopedia of Our Worst Nightmares Greenwood Publishing Group. The Complete H.P. Lovecraft Filmography Greenwood Press. Price has been a major figure in H. P. Lovecraft scholarship and fandom for many years. (2008) Tour De Lovecraft: The Tales Atomic Overmind Press. In essays that introduce the anthologies and the individual stories, Price traces the origins of Lovecraft's entities, motifs, and literary style. The Cthulhu Cycle, for example, saw the origins of the octopoid entity in Alfred Lord Tennyson's "The Kraken" and particular passages from Lord Dunsany, while The Dunwich Cycle points to the influence of Arthur Machen on Lovecraft's "The Dunwich Horror."

Price's religious background often informs his Mythos criticism, seeing gnostic themes in Lovecraft's fictional god Azathoth "Introduction". The Azathoth Cycle Chaosium. and interpreting "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" as a kind of initiation ritual. (2008) Tour De Lovecraft: The Tales Atomic Overmind Press.

Most of the early Cthulhu books by Chaosium were overseen by Price; his first book was The Hastur Cycle (1993), an anthology of short stories which traced the development of a single Lovecraftian element, and this was followed by Mysteries of the Worm (1993), a collection of Robert Bloch's Mythos fiction.Shannon Appelcline (2011) Designers & Dragons Mongoose Publishing, p. 91.
