I had no idea there was such a boardgame! Great, now I'll never beat my addiction to online shopping!!
The first Lovecraft story I found was "At The Mountains Of Madness" and it scared the life out of me. Then I found "The nameless City" and "The
Case of Charles Dexter Ward" and i haven't looked back. H P Lovecraft is a BIG influence on my work and I've devoted a lot of time and money
collecting films based (even as loosely as some are) on his work.
What surprised me was the blatant references in countless films that I noticed after becoming so obsessed with his work. To go into sufficient detail
would require a seperate thread but they're everywhere!!
When I found pretty much all I was going to by Lovecraft, I branched into the works of Lin Carter, August Derleth, L. Sprague-du-Camp and William Hope
Hodgeson. Even managed to find a few copies of Wierd Tales, absolute treasures if you can find them. Right now, there's a plethora of Lovecraftian
comics and graphic novels available.
Right now, I'm on a desperate quest to get hold of as many of his letters as i possibly can!!
