* Now available: the Amazon Kindle ereader edition of WaterFire’s reprinting of the corrected H.P. Lovecraft: New England Decadent. It’s a rather crude Kindle auto-conversion, and is without hyper-linked footnotes or navigation — but it’s vastly more affordable than the paper version.

* Now available: Charles Harrington’s Amazon Kindle ereader edition of H.P. Lovecraft’s Tour of Providence was published just yesterday on the Amazon Kindle store. Might be especially useful if you’re staying on after the convention to explore Providence…

“An updated walking guide to locations associated with Howard Phillips Lovecraft and his fiction. The approximately three-hour route winds through Providence, past Lovecraft’s haunts and influences for his macabre tales.”
