What Are You Smoking?

This is definitely a case when it doesn’t really matter what you put in the pipe. The pipe itself is enough to beg the shocked and horrified question.

Yeah, it’s not every woman who can pull off an octopus chest tattoo. But, Cthulhu be Praised, this one can.

Dagon She’s Hot?

OK. I now return you to your normally scheduled morning. Please don’t think about any Elder Eldritch Horrors having erotic dreams about tattooed brunettes. :(;,;):

Other Than Eldritch

When one thinks of H. P. Lovecraft, if one does think of him at all, one thinks naturally of his Cthulhu Mythos. That’s unsurprising since Lovecraft is heralded as one of the greatest, if not the greatest, writers of horror fiction of the twentieth century and the Cthulhu Mythos was the centerpiece of his writing. Lovecraft, however, wrote more than just horror. He also published a journal heavily focused on sociopolitical thought, The Conservative.

H. P. Lovecraft’s The Conservative had little no nothing to do with eldritch horrors. It was a journal edited and self-published sporadically by H. P. Lovecraft between 1915 and 1923. Some of its pieces were written by Lovecraft himself, but many of them were written by others. They included not just political and social commentary on the issues of the day, but also poetry, short stories and literary criticism.

The period in time covered by The Conservative coincided with some of the most tumultuous events of the twentieth century, including the First World War and the Russian Revolution.

It’s quite the interesting read.

Note, however, that I said it was an interesting read. It is not an easy one; not at all. It is firmly grounded in the society, issues, and history of a century ago. Still, I wholeheartedly recommend it as an addition to any American’s library.
