"Grotesque beyond the imagination of a Poe or a Bulwer"

The always-wonderful folks at Revolution Science Fiction are featuring my article "H.P. Lovecraft and the Imaginative Tale." The first half went online yesterday here, and the second will be up today. If you read it, I hope you enjoy!

And, speaking of Lovecraftian things, I'm excited to see that Hippocampus Press has added notice for the forthcoming Twisted in Dream: The Collected Weird Poetry of Ann K. Schwader, which will undoubtedly be eldritch and awesome.


In other personal news...

* My undergraduate and graduate "Harry Potter and His Predecessors" seminar begins next week at Lenoir-Rhyne University. The students seem very enthusiastic, and I can't wait.

* To prepare to participate in the October “Freedom, Empire, and Conflict in Two Greek Wars” roundtable to which I've been invited, I'm going to be spending some quality time with Herodotus and Thucydides in the next couple of months. (Fortunately, my role will be that of the outsider historian - familiar with the material, but not a specialist.) Ah, my old friends, it's been ages!

Happy early birthday wishes to darthsindel1981, ceosanna, amygrech, and dormannheim! May each of you enjoy many happy returns of the day.


Have I mentioned lately how much I'm looking forward to this film?
