The Lovecraftian: purveyor of all things H. P. Lovecraft

Posted by Harbinger451 on August 10, 2013

The Lovecraftian CategoryI’d like to draw your attention to a new section of our website dedicated to The Lovecraftian – a purveyor of all the latest news, updates, chatter and trends from the field of Lovecraft lore – the man, his works and his weird worlds of Yog-Sothothery.  The Lovecraftian often takes his studies into the field. He is currently exploring the fabled city of R’lyeh aboard his Deep-Sea Bathysphere “Nemo” in the depths of the South Pacific. Stay up-to-date with the news and join The Lovecraftian’s adventurous expeditions into the world of the Cthulhu Mythos by following him on Twitter where fact and fiction become entwined!

Also: Check out The Lovecraftian Herald, an online newspaper concerning all things Lovecraftian in the world of social media and beyond. Published twice daily by us here at Harbinger451.

The Lovecraftian’s main webpage can be found HERE. This page will soon act as a hub from which many Lovecraftian delights can be found. For now we have a list of all H. P. Lovecraft‘s fictional works plus a short Biography and a Photo-Album of the great man himself.

For the uninitiated:

H. P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) was an influential and prolific American writer of early twentieth century cosmic horror fiction who saw himself chiefly as a poet – though many believe that it is his immense body of often literary correspondence that is in fact his greatest accomplishment – he wrote over 100,000 letters in his lifetime. He inspired a veritable legion of genre writers then, and to this day, to set their fiction within his strange cultish world.

The Cthulhu Mythos: Lovecraft, somewhat light-heartedly, labelled the “Mythos” that he created in his body of work Yog-Sothothery – and also, on rare occasions, referred to his series of connected stories as the Arkham Cycle. It was his friend August Derleth who coined the term “Cthulhu Mythos” (named after one of the monstrous beings that featured in Lovecraft’s tales) to encapsulate his epic vision of a chaotic and dark universe filled with unspeakable horror.
