S. T. Joshi's magnificent biography of H. P. Lovecraft has, or is in ye process, of selling film rights. This is exciting for a number of reasons. First, it will ensure the longevity of the book, especially if a newly condensed single volume edition is published as film tie-in by a major publishing house. Second, a major film on Lovecraft's life will bring a nameless horde of new readers to Lovecraft's weird fiction.
But who will portray E'ch-Pi-El??? My money is on this guy:--
