Who (In Lovecraft's Universe) Are You?

You are Herbert West, Re-Animator, from the story of the same name. You create a potion that restores life-a bit like a cross between Jekyll-and-Hyde and Frankenstein. You are killed my mad zombies.

And now, one favorite author pays tribute to another:

"In a Sequester’d Providence Churchyard Where Once Poe Walk’d" by H.P. Lovecraft (1936)

Eternal brood the shadows on this ground,
Dreaming of centuries that have gone before;
Great elms rise solemnly by slab and mound,
Arched high above a hidden world of yore.
Round all the scene a light of memory plays,
And dead leaves whisper of departed days,
Longing for sights and sounds that are no more.

Lonely and sad, a specter glides along
Aisles where of old his living footsteps fell;
No common glance discerns him, though his song
Peals down through time with a mysterious spell.
Only the few who sorcery's secret know,
Espy amidst these tombs the shade of Poe.

I'm calling "cheat"...! I mean, really. I'm thinking "ghoul" is more like it... ;-)

Did you see that new "FearNet.com" channel that's debuting on Comcast on Halloween? Supposedly, it's 24 hours/day of on-demand horror movies...we're cautiously enthusiastic :)
