Happy Birthday, Mr. Lovecraft! Some of the presents, so far, that have been given away for Lovecraft’s 123rd Birthday:

* Axel in Germany has today launched the ArkhamInsiders podcast. It’s a new German-language Lovecraft podcast (first edition here) which…

“in the future [plans] to do interviews with international Lovecraft scholars, writers and so on.”

* My own birthday gift is a new The annotated “The Lurking Fear” as a free PDF, with 8,000 words of new scholarly annotations. The PDF is set up so it can be printed as a 46-page booklet on a home laser printer (use the likes of the FinePrint software to print a PDF as booklet-sheets).

* Fangoria has an interview with Bryan Moore, the maker of the Lovecraft Bronze Bust set to be unveiled at NecronomiCon Providence 2013.
