Ever wondered what Erich Zann’s music sounded like? Alexey Voytenko’s “The Music of Erich Zann” for violin solo (2009).
Some lucky bidder snagged this Lovecraft letter for $600. And the auctioneers kindly gave the world a nice clear scan, large enough to read.
The desert refered to is Dunsany’s… “There lie seven deserts beyond Bodrahahn, which is the city of the caravans end. None goeth beyond.”

A Kickstarter to make the full version of the feature documentary Lovecraft: Fear of the Unknown available again. It’s gone out-of-print, and the discs sells for silly prices used due to…

“Whispers in the Darkness” (2010) by Gato-Chico. Photoshop and stock. With some suitably refined typography and some cropping at the top and bottom, this would make someone a fine book cover.
Newly arrived on Amazon, the revised paperback of A Look Behind the Derleth Mythos: Origins of the Cthulhu Mythos, for $17.99.
