I have spread my dreams under your feet.

Hi there! I’m Mike Davis, founder of The Lovecraft eZine. Each week, I bring you the popular Lovecraft eZine Podcast (video and audio): a bunch of geeks talking about Lovecraftian horror, weird fiction, horror books and movies, and more!
The Lovecraft eZine is also a micro-press; I’ve published books like Autumn Cthulhu, The Peaslee Papers, and Whispers, just to name a few.
Most of all, The Lovecraft eZine is a community. Here’s a comment from Sandy Hale, one of my listeners and Patreons:
I am deeply, deeply grateful for this group and the guests you have. When I listen/watch, I feel like after a lifetime of being a square peg in a round world, I’ve finally found my peer group. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I need your help to keep the eZine going. If you’re a fan of the podcasts and/or the books, please become a Patreon. For only $5 a month — less than the price of a fast food meal — you’ll have access to additional Patreon-only podcasts!
And at higher reward levels, you can get free print and Kindle Lovecraft eZine Press books (and other horror books) every month, free-to-read stories by established writers published here only for you, and you can even be a guest panelist on the show!
This is my only job, and I love doing it. But it takes money to keep the Lovecraft eZine going. If you enjoy the podcasts and the books, please become a Patreon. You’ll get tons of extra content, fun, and community, and you’ll be ensuring that the eZine continues.
But don’t take my word for it. Here’s a note from one of my $10/month Patreons, Allan Smulling, after one of our bi-monthly Hangouts:
I had a great time last night! I’ve been watching the Lovecraft eZine team on YouTube for at least a year and have enjoyed their discussions and recommendations. It was such a treat to get to speak to Mike Davis, Pete Rawlik, Matthew Carpenter, Rick Lai, Ben, and other Patreons.
I’m trying not to sound too fan-boy-ish, but this is a great Patreon perk. Not only can you ask questions but you can laugh along with with the group. They are all very entertaining, informative and… well… educational. What a great resource if you want to learn about horror, strange fiction, pulps, and behind the scenes views.
Last night was kind of a mini-Necronomicon for me. It was around 1.5 to 2 hours of REALLY enjoyable conversation. To me, I wouldn’t put a price tag on it… I just enjoyed it. For a Patreon pledge of $10 to get a chance to speak to a group of very interesting authors and editors / publishers bi-weekly is a no-brainer.
Mike here again: I hope you’ll join us!
