Happy Holidays from Lovecraft eZine! Listen to this short eZine podcast episode to learn about our 2017 guest schedule.
In this episode, we discussed trigger warnings (are they necessary?), H.G. Wells and Lovecraft, the latest weird fiction books, had some thoughts for writers and other creative types, and more.
In this episode we talked about the C.M. Eddy / Hippocampus lawsuit, then...
The discussion that begins at 34:15 is about THE AGE OF LOVECRAFT, a book of essays on Lovecraft, his work, and his themes. I neglected to mention the title in this discussion; sorry about that.
Then we briefly segued into our thoughts and opinions on the Lovecraft racism topic. Some may be sick of this, but it isn't something we've talked about much on this show, and I believe we contributed meaningfully to the discussion.
Then we moved on to: the upcoming NIGHTMARE WORLD graphic novel, LOVECRAFT IS MISSING, Nick Gucker's upcoming limited edition zine, FRAGILE DREAMS by Philip Fracassi, the upcoming WHISPERS by Kristin Dearborn (inspired by Lovecraft's "The Whisperer in Darkness"), and the ending to 11/22/63 by Stephen King (with spoiler warnings ahead of time).
With Kelly Young, Matthew Carpenter, Rick Lai, and me, Mike Davis.
In this episode we discussed THE MADNESS OF DOCTOR CALIGARI, a brand new anthology inspired by the 1920 film THE CABINET OF DOCTOR CALIGARI. With editor Joe Pulver, and four of the book's contributors: John Langan, S.P. Miskowski, Michael Griffin, and Molly Tanzer.
Rick Lai, Matthew Carpenter, and Pete Rawlik also contributed to the discussion.
In this episode, we talk with author Douglas Wynne about his new Lovecraftian novel BLACK JANUARY.
In the second hour, we discussed some of our favorite weird fiction stories, with a special emphasis on THE WEIRD, a collection of 110 weird fiction stories edited by Jeff & Ann VanderMeer.
We also talked about the new creepypasta TV series CHANNEL ZERO.
In this episode, we talk about Lovecraftian-themed horror movies currently on Netflix and Amazon Prime, upcoming Lovecraftian and weird fiction books, and more! It was a fun discussion.
One of the themes (and for me, the most fascinating) of Lovecraftian fiction is the idea that there are some truths that are too terrible to know. In my view, much of weird fiction can be summed up as "things are not as they seem."
Richard Cox is certainly not a "Lovecraftian" writer, but in my opinion he's a writer of weird fiction. His books are hard to classify, but if you too are interested in those themes, the nature of reality, and particularly the work of Philip K. Dick, I think you'll enjoy his work.
And in the last third of this episode, we talked a little about the mixed messages that writers are getting: that some things are off limits to some writers and not to others, etc.
All that, plus a live report on the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival from our reporter on the scene, Kelly Young!
In the second hour: it's October! We talked about our favorite horror movies, plus some upcoming Lovecraftian and weird fiction books.

This episode's guest is Sam Cowan, chief cook and bottle washer at Dim Shores Publishing.
And in the second hour: a discussion on Lovecraft and feminism, a fascinating new weird fiction novel THE BOYS OF SUMMER by Richard Cox, and more!
This episode's guest is Philip Fracassi, an author and screenwriter. His screenplays include films for Disney Entertainment and Lifetime Television. His books include the early literary novel, THE EGOTIST. More recently, he has focused exclusively on horror. His recent novelettes include MOTHER and ALTAR.

We discuss the new "Herald: Lovecraft and Tesla" tabletop roleplaying game, the "Haunter of the Dark" album by Infinite Spectrum, "Strange Aeons" magazine, the "Stranger Things" TV series, and more! (We also get into a side-discussion about "Man of Steel" and "Batman v Superman".)
