Weird Tales interviews Wilum Pugmire.
SF writer Charles Stross muses on What Scared Lovecraft (hint: a big weird universe).
An interview with Gabriel Blackwell about his book The Natural Dissolution of Fleeting-Improvised-Men: The Last Letter of H.P. Lovecraft.
A little over seventy years after Lovecraft’s death, there appears to be a modern political tendency that he might have felt at home with. It seems to me that these guys are being a little optimistic about the return to a human aristocracy, in the face of a future where untouchable ‘Computer says No!’ AI-augmented bots are effectively already the new aristocrats and poised to spread their rule to more and more parts of our lives.
“November’s featured tour is The Weird West Village: From Crowley to Lovecraft“
Cthulhus Ruf, a German Lovecraft fanzine. It doesn’t seem to be just a gamezine, although I don’t read German and could be wrong.
Only just heard about this. Occult Humanities conference, 18th-20th October 2013 in New York…
“The conference will present a wide array of voices active in the cultural landscape who are specifically addressing the occult tradition through research, scholarship and artistic practice. [from] a rich and expanding community of international artists and academics from multiple disciplines across the humanities who share an exuberance and excitement for how the occult traditions interface with their fields of study as well as the culture at large.”
Hopefully the organisers will summon up some of that occult ‘action at a distance’ thing, and put session podcasts online in the near future.
I checked the Open Lovecraft page page for link-rot, and have repaired where needed.
