Why You Should Be Reading a Little Bit o’ Lovecraft This Weekend

Because Scott and I will be discussing four of his short stories next week at A Good Story is Hard to Find.

And you know you want to find out why two good Catholics would love the lurking horror that is in these tales:

  • Dagon
  • The Statement of Randolph Carter
  • The Colors Out of Space
  • The Dunwich Horror

I recommend reading them in this order as the ethos and worldview build nicely that way.

Although I must warn you that I have had a nightmare about Dagon … and he was invisible. So, there is that to consider.

Nonetheless, it is quite good fun and I’m excited that I was able to listen to the stories. Lovecraft’s prose just rolls into your ear so beautifully.
