Tea-drinker par excellence

More HPL scholarship

I've been mooching about the Ghooric Zone and the tentacles it spreads across the net. I found that Goldsmiths held a one day conference last April called Lovecraft: Weird Realism, which I missed. There was a booklet of essays the cover of which can be found here. Whilst these are likely to be rather esoteric, in the sense of extreme lit crit as opposed to having a deep understanding of magic, I would have like to have seen them. Perhaps they might be persuaded to append them to the Tour de Lovecraft but I don't hold out much hope for that, even if Ken is a bridge between gaming and literary sensibilities (part 2 of the article is here).
