H.P. Lovecraft 125th BD

125 years ago today Howard Phillips Lovecraft (pictured on the left here, with journalist William J. Dowdell) was born in Providence, Rhode Island. He became a writer at an early age, with his first work published at age 14! He went on to leave behind a volume of work that continues to inspire a legion of fans to this very day - this writer included. I recently had a "Lovecraftian" story published in the anthology FALL OF CTHULHU VOLUME II. My story is entitled THE CRIMSON TRAIL and is a weird western.

Here's toast to the king of tales of madness, despair, and Elder Gods. Long live your legacy, Mr. Lovecraft!
