    Lovecraft and Hollywood

    Last month, there was been talk of Hollywood making a grand cinematic universe based of off Lovecraft's stories, there have been many film adaptations of Lovecraft's stories but most of them are relatively small in production, with the original Reanimator trilogy and a handful being larger. Most...

    Re-reading HP Lovecraft - oh, dear!

    I still remember when I got the Little Brown HP Lovecraft Omnibuses for Christmas, and the pleasure I had reading through them after. Mind, the story quality was variable across each volume, but when the stories were good they were brilliant. The Color out of Space was a clear favorite for its...

    Ronald Coleman and Lovecraft

    I listened to a 1950s Suspense OTR broadcast--and was surprised to hear Ronald Coleman talking about Yog Suggoth and the Necronomicon. Some of the sound effects are creepy. I didn't realize Lovecraft had already had some mainstream media attention. Suspense was a big show at the time and it's...

    (Found) Need help identifying a mythos story

    I remember years ago reading something which I thought was HPL but may have been Derleth or Long. I'm pretty sure it was set in Wisconsin in an isolated house in a forest and one of the features I remember that really grabbed me was the trees swaying in the wind except that after a while, the...

    H.P. Lovecraft’s The Tomb Review

    H.P. Lovecraft’s “The Tomb” was one of his earlier works, written in June 1917 and then published in March 1922. Since it was written four years before “The Call of Cthulhu”, arguably his most famous work, it’s interesting to analyze it. I discovered this story via “The H.P. Lovecraft...

    Is the writing of Lovecraft better than his contemporaries?

    I seem to be on a roll with Howard today, so here is my question.. Lovecraft is considered the father of the Mythos and rightly so but is he the best?. Do you prefer his work to say Clark Ashton Smith for example, Or even Charles Stross`s Laundry files?.. That includes Comics and graphic novels...

    What is your favorite Mythos / H P Lovecraft story and why?

    Weirdly I usually choose The Quest of Iranon, the reason I suspect is I enjoy the uplift in the begining as it has almost a hippy feel, to the crushing ending as reality crashes in and drowns him.

    Anyone know any modern takes on the Cthulhu Mythos in book form?

    As a fan of the man and a writer of Mythos novels I can never find many more modern interpretations of the Mythos, they all hark to the original style and theme even Ramsey Campbell and the second crop of writers. I have been writing and publishing modern variants of the theme with Outlaw...

    Lovecraft's Comfortable World

    Really, Lovecraft's stories have more in common with The Wind in the Willows than they are given credit for. By and large, Lovecraft's world is free of adult concerns. The protagonists do not have to work for a living. To the extent that money is even thought of, it's just there as needed...
