305-Spiders

This week we talk about  Atlach-Nacha, Charles Burns comics and also an adventure movie by Fritz Lang.

Whispers from the Abyss vol. 1

Whispers from the Abyss: Volume One is a wonderful anthology of dark fiction/horror based in the shared literary world of HP Lovecraft, know that first. This anthology is a marvelous collection of weird fiction, some of it of a violent brutal nature. Some of it told in a clever manner as a series of text messages, or the classic gothic/lovecraftian journal entry trope. Stories of fish people, ancient gods and extradimensional space aboud. This is a wonderful read. I highly recommend this ebook. I look forward to reading its sequel anthology once I finish my current round of books. whisperscover

Age of Lovecraft

51dxdz9ggbl-_sy344_bo1204203200_

Edited by Carl H. Sederholm & Jeffrey Andrew Weinstock
Foreword by Ramsey Campbell
Published by University of Minnesota Press

The Age of Lovecraft is a welcome treat. A critical look at the writings of H.P. Lovecraft. Lovecraft is typically the scholarship of  English Literature, Folklorists, Antiquarians or of Theologians.

Finally Lovecraft in the form of peer reviewed papers by way darkest Academia. A foreword by author Ramsey Campbell, mostly about HPL’s influence on culture.
Next we are treated to several pieces on Lovecraft and his writing. Topics vary from Realism, to sexuality in HPL’s writings. Comparisons to Neil Gaiman and Ridley Scott are made. Lovecraft gets compared to visual artists of his era and philosophers of his time as well.

I Highly recommend this book for people interested in thinking more critically about Lovecraft. This is a really great collection of different thoughts from many different angles about one of the Twentieth Century’s greatest authors.
