Today is the debut of my essay ""'Strange and Fearful Imaginations': Rediscovering the Terror of Baron de la Motte Fouqué," about the great author of The Magic Ring and many other classic works. It is included in the newest issue (#8) of Apex Science Fiction and Horror Digest, which is available for purchase online and at the newsstands of most major booksellers.
For the Lovecraft fans, the latest podcast from The Atlanta Radio Theatre includes a wonderful dramatization of "The Colour Out of Space." (Thanks to vaklam for the recommendation.)
"Baron Fouqué appears, indeed, to unite the delicacy and rich pathos of Tasso with something of the wildness and terrible delineations of Shakespeare."
The Monthly Review, 1820
