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.

This conversation with Scott Poole is worth your time. I say conversation because a large part of this book’s close to 300 pages reads to what amounts to a gentlemanly back & forth between Scott and S.T. Joshi.

There has to be a mystery at the root of your story that your protagonist can only attempt to solve at the expense of their sanity, their life, or both.
