HAPPY BIRTHDAY H.P. LOVECRAFT!

Today is the birthday of the greatest American writer of the 20th Century. I am, of course, talking about Howard Phillips Lovecraft, born August 20th, 1890. I couldn’t let it pass without writing some form of tribute to the man who, without his limitless imagination of cosmic horror, the horror world would’ve never been as we know it today. He was contemporaries with Robert Bloch (PSYCHO), Robert E. Howard (CONAN THE BARBARIAN), and Fritz Leiber, amongst others, going on to influence every great horror writer we revere today. Stephen King┬ácalled Lovecraft “the Twentieth Century’s greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale,” and Neil Gaiman has called him “Rock and Roll.” That last quote could be taken quite literally as Lovecraft has been referenced in bands such as Black Sabbath and Metallica, amongst many others, with a psychedelic band in the 60s/70s even naming themselves after the man.
