HP Lovecraft

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

Cool Air

Pickman's Model

The Shadow over Innsmouth

Dagon

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.
