Happy Holidays from Lovecraft eZine! Listen to this short eZine podcast episode to learn about our 2017 guest schedule.

Nov 28, 2016

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.

Nov 22, 2016

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.

And more!

Oct 17, 2016

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.

Oct 10, 2016

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.

He is the author of THE BOYS OF SUMMER, THOMAS WORLD, and other books -- and he's our guest on this episode. It was a fascinating discussion!

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!

Oct 5, 2016

Catherine Grant is my guest on this episode's podcast. We discussed her recent blog post on diversity, and more.
