Guest Nathan Carson, our favorite Lovecraftian anthologies, the work of Thomas Ligotti, and more!
This episode’s guest is Ellen Datlow, editor of CHILDREN OF LOVECRAFT, LOVECRAFT UNBOUND, LOVECRAFT’S MONSTERS, and many other books! A very interesting discussion: Ellen talked about her time at OMNI, how a writer gets on her radar, her work as a consulting editor at Tor.com, tropes she sees too much, and more.
This episode’s guest is Stephen Graham Jones, author of MONGRELS, a werewolf coming of age novel, and many other books. Stephen teaches creative writing at the University of Colorado. We talked about werewolves and why they may be the next big thing. Plus writing, comics, and much more!
This episode’s guests are… us! I’ve received a few requests for more information on the writers and editors on this show, so on this episode, we interview each other.
Listen to this week’s podcast at the link! We talked with Stephen Mark Rainey, discussed book awards, tickets to Necronomicon, the HPL Film Festival 4-DVD box set, and more.
Lovecraft told his tales with beings from space, the ocean and other weird environments, but cosmic horror doesn’t need tentacled horrors from beyond time – it resonates with us because we see it all around us every day.
The Lovecraft eZine weekly podcast: This episode’s guest is Philip Gelatt, writer of the Lovecraftian film EUROPA REPORT and director of THEY REMAIN, the film adaptation of “–30–” by Laird Barron. Laird also joined us for this episode. Listen at the link.
We talked with Chet about collecting Lovecraftian books and memorabilia, about his work, and ended the discussion with writing advice. Then Pete Rawlik and Philip Fracassi showed us some of their limited edition and collectible Lovecraftian books, and gave us some great advice on book collecting in general.
I’d like to reflect on what I really enjoyed about my little slice of Lovecraftian fandom in 2016.
We discuss trigger warnings, how to persevere as a writer, Lovecraft’s racism, and much more.
Listen to the latest Lovecraft eZine podcast, in which we discuss THE MADNESS OF DOCTOR CALIGARI, a brand new anthology inspired by the 1920 film THE CABINET OF DOCTOR CALIGARI.
In the first hour, we talked with author Douglas Wynne about his new Lovecraftian novel BLACK JANUARY.
In the second hour, we discussed some of our favorite weird fiction stories, with a special emphasis on THE WEIRD, a collection of 110 weird fiction stories edited by Jeff and Ann VanderMeer. We also talked about the new creepypasta TV series CHANNEL ZERO.
A very fun podcast this week! We talked about Lovecraftian-themed horror movies currently on Netflix and Amazon Prime, upcoming Lovecraftian and weird fiction books, and more.
One of the themes (and for me, the most fascinating) of Lovecraftian fiction is the idea that there are some truths that are too terrible to know. In my view, much of weird fiction can be summed up as “things are not as they seem.” Richard Cox is certainly not a “Lovecraftian” writer, but in my opinion he’s a writer of weird fiction. His books are hard to classify, but if you too are interested in those themes, the nature of reality, and particularly the work of Philip K. Dick, I think you’ll enjoy his work.
The China Miéville interview and the Ramsey Campbell foreword are worth the price of admission by themselves. Add eleven well-written essays, and it’s a no-brainer.
