Happy 120th, H.P. Lovecraft!


On this day in 1890, the stars were right -- and H.P. Lovecraft was born. Happy 120th, HPL!

In celebration of this auspicious day, StarShipSofa is running my unabridged narration of F. Paul Wilson's Lovecraft tribute, The Barrens.
-- Listen to Part 1 here.
-- Listen to Part 2 here.
-- Part 3 and my own tribute to Lovecraft will both be on next week's show!

Here are a few Lovecraftian links of mine:
* My Photo Tour of Lovecraft's Providence
* "The New Shoggoth Chic: Why H.P. Lovecraft Now?"
* Neil Gaiman's Lovecraftian Works

Some of my favorite Lovecraft sites include the following:
* The H.P. Lovecraft Archive
* Index of The Works of Howard Phillips Lovecraft
* The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society
* "H.P. Lovecraft" by S.T. Joshi
* The Collected Public Domain Works of H.P. Lovecraft at Librivox.org
* The H.P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast
* The Cthulhu Podcast





"Only the silent, sleepy, staring houses in the backwoods can tell all that has lain hidden since the early days; and they are not communicative, being loath to shake off the drowsiness which helps them forget. Sometimes one feels that it would be merciful to tear down these houses, for they must often dream."
- H.P. Lovecraft, "The Picture in the House"
