Issue #16 – July 2012

Issue #16 – July 2012 | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it

This is a very special issue of the Lovecraft eZine. One of the most beloved aspects of H.P. Lovecraft’s writing is his dauntless explorations into the sea, and the menagerie of strange beings that he dredged up therefrom. A plethora of globulus glob gods, slimy tentacled deities encrusted with barnacles, stinking mounds of vegetus unholiness, lurking Fish Lords of ancient Polynesian descent, and of course slumbering Cthulhu dreaming amongst the ziggurats of his sunken R’lyeh… the list goes on and on… and so do the adjectives.

Lovecraft eZine Issue #15 – June 2012

Lovecraft eZine Issue #15 – June 2012 | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it

Welcome to issue #15! Mike Davis here, editor and publisher. I think you’ll find this issue to be worth the wait. I have six Lovecraftian tales for you, as well as a touching memoriam to Robert Nelson, a suicidal young poet that HPL corresponded with. Some of the tales in this issue are, in my opinion, the creepiest published here yet. Enjoy issue #15.
