Oh yes, I remember when I finished that book I used to find WWII in absolutely everything for a couple of months.
Anyway, a friend of mine had the opportunity to talk to him in person and he seemed like a really interesting guy, lots of conspiracy theories and so...

Both are pretty great. Currently I'm reading "The Dunwich Horror" which is very interesting as well. Finally a Necronomicon-quote and hopefully some details about Yog-Sothoth. :sarcasm:

I understand a description of Yog-Sothoth is in "The Horror in the Museum". Lovecraft seems to be really shy about giving descriptions of his horrors. Then again, maybe he's just lazy--tends to replace descriptions with "indescribable" or "unnameable".

Yeah, I noticed that as well, but I must say that I favour "indescribable" and "unnamable" over detailed descriptions of slimy monsters with tentacles... :;):

Currently reading Off the Map which are the journals/letters of two girls hitching across Europe and staying in squats and random places. I am really into the nomadic culture and the idea of squatting so I find it pretty fascinating.

Just finished Days of War, Nights of Love which is also but out by the CrimethInc collective (Off the Map is from them as well) A great anarchist book that explores the current system and how it presents itself to us and keeps us passive and tame. Also a very great read.

D.So - Pavor Nocturnus. Finally re-reading this with the necessary distance. 4/5 through and tons of reflection so far.

Efraim Medina Reyes - The Sexuality of the Pink Panther

I guess the title's been translated this way in English. Couldn't find no infos on the net.

Neil Gaiman & Charles Vess - Stardust

Recommended!

I have the lavishly illustrated version of this story, which as many will know is now a "major motion picture", which I have yet to see, by the way. The story is very nice, in any case - I like Gaiman's original take on fantasy.

I also started reading Ghost Stories of an Antiquary by M.R. James, classic horror / ghost stories, and definitely essential if you're interested in the people that inspired Lovecraft.
