Follow-Up Lovecraftiana, Etc.

Happy birthday to super_chik and happy early birthday to dement1a. May you both enjoy many happy returns of the day!

In honor of H.P. Lovecraft's 120th birthday this month, StarShipSofa ran my unabridged narration of F. Paul Wilson's Lovecraft homage, the novella The Barrens, in three parts. The third and final installment is now available to stream or download on the latest episode of StarShipSofa. (Part 1 is here and Part 2 is here.)

In related news, my most recent StarShipSofa "History of the Genre" segment, which is about H.P. Lovecraft, is also available in the latest episode of the podcast. You can download it or listen to it here.

If you listen, I hope you enjoy!

And one last reminder, before the end of the month:

"Round pegs find round holes, square pegs find square holes. And by the same token, albeit with rather greater difficulty, I am sure that there must somewhere be a corresponding hole for such a peg as proverbial metaphor may dub trapezohedral!"
- H.P. Lovecraft, in a job application letter

I do not know what Tony refered to but I just want to wish you well. You are such a wonderful narrator and seems an allaround nice person. Hope things get better.

Re: well-wishes
You are so kind, Peter! Thank you for your good wishes and generous words.

The story in brief is that my mother is currently fighting multiple myeloma. She's determined to beat it, and she's working with a wonderful team of doctors who specialize in this cancer, but of course every positive thought and good wish helps. I'm most grateful for your encouragement and support!

Finally! I refuse to listen to that story in parts. I've been waiting so that I can hear it all together.

That is a good quote... a good quote, indeed.

Thanks so much! I think this was recorded with my first mic, so I apologize in advance for the sound. I hope you like it anyway.

I just adore that quote.
