* Here is the Lovecraftian Call for Abstracts for this year's Dr. Henry Armitage Memorial Scholarship Symposium (previously the Emerging Scholarship Symposium) at NecronomiCon in Providence. In 2013, this symposium was one of the highlights of the convention, and we're excited to bring it back this year, bigger and better. Deadline for submission is May 23. All accepted presenters will receive a free convention pass and access to a special reception for guests. However, space is limited, so all submissions will undergo a review process. For the full CFA and more details, go here. (Thanks to ankh_hpl!)
