H. P. Lovecraft
Today is the anniversary of the death in 1937 of H. P. Lovecraft. I wrote a post on him last year, and it includes a link to a Jack Chick parody tract and a link to audio of The Dunwich Horror. The H. P. Lovecraft Archives are here. His complete works are online here, here and here. His works have been adapted for tv and film. There is an overview of Lovecraft here that includes a wonderful set of annotated links. Salon.com has an article. His Cthulhu Mythos has surges of popularity, including an ongoing campaign for President: "Cthulhu for President. Why vote for a lesser evil?"
