Happy Birthday, H.P. Lovecraft!

Today let’s celebrate one of the masters of horror who really defined the genre of weird fiction: H.P. Lovecraft! Here’s one of my favorite quotes by him:

“Searchers after horror haunt strange, far places. For them are the catacombs of Ptolemais, and the carven mausolea of the nightmare countries. They climb to the moonlit towers of ruined Rhine castles, and falter down black cobwebbed steps beneath the scattered stones of forgotten  cities in Asia. The haunted wood and the desolate mountain are their shrines, and they linger around the sinister monoliths of uninhabited islands”

H.P. Lovecraft 1890-1937
