Christmas is a time where I usually curl up with some HP Lovecraft, and catch up on my favorite stories.
The Rats in the Walls
Herbert West: Reanimator
The Music of Erich Zann
The Shadow over Innsmouth
Read them all here.
I first discovered HP Lovecraft during the winter of 2003. His superfluous language ignited a passion and haunting dark desire in me that I had only felt reading Poe, or Shakespeare. There's some sort of shadowy unknown thing lingering in some unknown depth of my psyche.
A vile evil vitriol, which courses through my veins, secretly guiding some perverse curiosity.
