HPL at the JCC

Yes, it is true.

That which is dead does not eternal lie, and with strange decades even HOWARD PHILLIPS LOVECRAFT may rise!

And we'll have him Thursday and Friday at the Jean Cocteau Cinema



Learn the secrets the Mad Arab knew, and gaze into the face of Azathoth, the blind idiot god at the center of our universe.

And have some popcorn too! It comes to us strait from Leng!

An honour to attend
I am very honoured to have been invited to perform. You can see Mr. Lovecraft's thoughts on some of Mr. Martin's work here: https://youtu.be/bZLaUR7rVuI

I read this and thought JCC- Jewish Community Center, how cool! Oops.

If I could ask Lovecraft something, it would be that he acknowledge the Legend of Old Man Henderson as Cthulhu mythos canon.

I'm more entertained by the player finding a way to 'win' at Call of Cthulhu than I am by the surrounding story about a player getting back at an obnoxious GM through over-the-top antics.

'Winning' in a Lovecraft story in any other way than being alive and reasonably sane at the end isn't really supposed to be a thing. It's part of the whole mystique of the mythos.

But a schizophrenic Scotsman killing Hastur the Unspeakable in a suicide bombing by summoning him in a hockey rink filled with high explosives, all because he thinks Hastur's cultists stole $40,000 worth of garden gnomes from him, should be granted canon status for sheer audacity.

StokerCon
Kind of Lovecraft-related, so I figured I'd ask. Do you know what your schedule at StokerCon is going to be yet? I'm still not seeing much of an outline at their website. Thanks!

What is dead may never die
I notice that line from HP Lovecraft is very similar to the motto of the Drowned God faithful. Was Lovecraft one of your inspirations for the DG or other elements within ASOIAF?

RE: Re: What is dead may never die
Wow, a rather exhaustive and well-documented list! Interesting read, for sure. Thank you for the link and the response. And maybe entirely subconscious, Mr. Martin, but I've kept my copy of Necronomicon right next to A Dance with Dragons on my bookshelf. Glad to hear you're a fan too. Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!

Lovecraft Dead Can Never Die
I think I have those bookshelves. Love the Cthulhu (Thank the old gods and the new for spellcheck.) dolls. My favorite is the one with the hat. As for the accent, it doesn't sound very Rhode Island or Boston to me, but I don't know New England from the early twentieth century. I hope he doesn't think less of me, you know, child of Slavic immigrants and such.

By the Old Gods and the New one!
Where's teleportation, or even glass candles, when you need them?
Entry into the Nyarlathotep Cycle, the Faceless God of a thousand Masks, Luciferianism and Aldebaran the Red Star, cruel fates & cosmic jokes written in one's stars (discussing Oedipus and variants at the "Jean Cocteau"): this would be my idea of "happy hour(s)".

Eddard: Tell me, Lord Varys, who do you truly serve?
Varys: Why, the realm, my good lord, how ever could you doubt that? I swear it by my lost manhood. I serve the realm, and the realm needs -hotep.

Not written in my stars, I guess...
Will there be videos, at least?
