Love H.P.

January 5, 2009

lovecraftA friend of mine has been riding me to get into H.P. Lovecraft for years now, but I  never really dug him that much due to the dragging, convoluted narration. As I am a huge fan of several movies based on his stories and hold said friend’s opinion in high regard, over my X-mas vacation I purchased several of his books (of which I never got to read 90% of; see last post). After reading the first story, my imagination was running amok. I instantly felt an urge to draw out the monsters and cosmic horrors described in his short stories. Despite his shortcomings in verse, he is unparalleled when it comes to weaving alternate realities, dreadful mysteries and tales of the occult. I even named this blog after one of his stories (a movie called Dagon was made based on it as well). For anyone who might be interested, here are a few cool Lovecraft related links:
