S. T. Joshi has pofted a new blog in which he addresses the matter of World Fantasy's decision to retire the wonderful Gahan Wilson trophy that has been ye World Fantasy Award. His blog may be read at www.stjoshi.org/news.html. I am entirely with him on this--World Fantasy no longer exists for me. I don't feel anger as much as I feel an intense sadness over this situation. As a Lovecraftian artist, I feel personally slighted by the Lovecraft-haters and their misguided gloating in thinking they have won some kind of victory and are helping to banish H. P. Lovecraft and his influence. I am, more than ever now, dedicated to my task of paying homage to H. P. Lovecraft and his art with any and every book that I will henceforth compose.
