Look Ma, I'm a Lovecraft "Scholar"!!


Yes, indeed--just got a nice wee royalty cheque--for twenty-three cents!! Damn, makes one feel so...professional...

But I also got my cont. copies of Lovecraft Annual No. 11 -- & my essay on "The Thing on the Doorstep" is ye lead article! That just feels surreal, for I have never consider'd myself any kind of Lovecraft "scholar". Ye essay was originally written for a volume in the PS Publishing Illustrated Lovecraft series edited by Pete Von Sholly; but they were unable to use it and so S. T. grabbed it for his magnificent journal of Lovecraft criticism. Here is ye Contents for this new issue:

  1. Such illustrious company. I, for one, have always been very interested to read your words on Lovecraftian literature here and elsewhere. You have an interesting perspective and I shall look forward to getting and reading this. May the Muse be with thee. G. ;-)=
