For Lovecraft Fans

Several book recommendations this morning, for fans of Eldritch Horror: has put together the Free Complete Works of H.P. Lovecraft for ebook, nook, and kindle. (Also PDF, for people who don't have anything that'll read any of those formats.) My gratitude, like the touch of Yog-Sothoth, overflows all boundaries.

I'm currently reading The Translated Man by Chris Braak, which is a lovely bit of Lovecraftian world-building.

Over on Kickstarter, the Tremulus project has tripled its original goal, and is well along the way to meeting its stretch goals. This is shaping up to be a really interesting (tabletop) roleplaying game of Lovecraftian horror, so even though it's already met its goal, I'd encourage you to get in on it.

I also just downloaded Daughter of Hounds by Caitlin R. Kiernan. I read this one a while back, and it's another good example of Lovecraftian world-building. It's darker in tone than The Translated Man (above), and there are some elements (particularly a rape) that some readers may find triggering - though the author handles them carefully.

So that's my list. Anyone else care to recommend a book or two? Comments are open.


  1. Not a book, but an amazing website/tribute to HP:
    Miskatonic Mansion
    Warning: Here be timesucks! And it may work better in Firefox than in Chrome.

  2. Eh, who needs to get work done? Oh, wait...


Feel free to leave comments; it lets me know that people are actually reading my blog. Interesting tangents and topic drift just add flavor. Linking to your own stuff is fine, as long as it's at least loosely relevant. Be civil, and have fun!
