Lovecraft’s Uniqueness. That is what we want to explore in this essay, “What makes Lovecraft’s fiction trail-blazing?” Or specifically, while Lovecraft was a materialist and atheist, “What literary steps did he take to rekindle a myth-hunger in modern humanity?”
In this discussion, we will address the following questions: How did H.P. Lovecraft view man’s emerging relationship to machines? What lessons can humanity take from the Earth first proto-men, the Elder Things? How do those concepts apply to humanity’s relations with today’s shoggoths: Artificial Intelligence? What will sentient A.I. attitudes be towards its organic creators? How are society’s overlords preparing the populace for future A.I. rule? Will evolution ensure a future humanity that is superior to A.I.?
We discussed the Lovecraftian Gods of Stephen King in the latest Lovecraft eZine podcast! Listen to it here, or on iTunes (search for “Lovecraft eZine podcast”).
