It's always a great time to pay homage to the master of eldritch horror — and The Revelator is here for you, with a fantastic H.P. Lovecraft themed issue. There's a highly entertaining editorial, plus amazing fiction by Meghan McCarron and Laird Barron. McCarron's "Lovecraft in Brooklyn" not only takes its name from a great Mountain Goats song, it also tackles hipsters, racism and gentrification in a truly creepy, Lovecraft-inspired way. And there are essays by Nick Mamatas (author of the Lovecraftian Move Under Ground) and others. Check it out.
In my small town high school I was literally the only person who had heard of H.P. Lovecraft (I introduced several friends to his stories and started up a Call of Cthulhu gaming group) so it's really weird to see him become such a huge part of nerd culture. Credit/blame the Internet?
