On a recent Lovecraft eZine podcast, I raised the issue of Lovecraftian influences in Doctor Who novels. With that in mind, here are two of them.

While there are obviously more than five Lovecraftian / cosmic horror novels that I’ve enjoyed reading, I chose these books because I liked them so much that I’ve read each of them at least twice.
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.
