"the mysterious forces of its long, continuous history"

Happy birthday to thehornedgod and baylorsr, and happy Father's Day to all of you who father (both literally and figuratively) children of all varieties (two-legged and four-legged)!


I am back from a busy but rewarding time lecturing at Brown University. The highlight of my week was my tour of Lovecraftian sites in Providence. I've uploaded my photos, including the following:

The H.P. Lovecraft Memorial Plaque at Brown University

"The Shunned House"

"Old Providence! It was this place and the mysterious forces of its long, continuous history which had brought him into being, and which had drawn him back toward marvels and secrets whose boundaries no prophet might fix. Here lay the arcana, wondrous or dreadful as the case might be, for which all his years of travel and application had been preparing him."
- H.P. Lovecraft, "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward"
