Episode Info:

What was HPLâ??s opinion of Great Britain and its culture? Of the Empire? Or World War 1? Was he an advocate of America joining the war against Germany, or was he of a more isolationist tendency? Any comments on Stephen Kingâ??s very Lovecraftian story â??Nâ??? What did Lovecraft himself regard as his best works of fiction, and his worst? Arenâ??t there enough parallels between the Cthulhu Mythos and Godzilla films to consider the latter a species of the former? Check out the short films on YouTube by "bluworm", especially his adaptation of â??Tthe Shadow Out of Time.â?? What is your opinion on the fiction universe of Warhammer 40k and the very Lovecraftian Chaos Deities? A tour guide on Providenceâ??s HPL walking tour stopped us at a yellow and black building with strange aquatic carvings on it, and told us that one of the creatures carved in it was Lovecraftâ??s inspiration for Cthulhu. Is that so? Any opinion on Donald Tysonâ??s novel Alhazred? Later this year there is a Call of Cthulhu game coming out for the playstation 4 and xbox. See the trailer on youtube if only to see the visuals and atmosphere. Isnâ??t the Necronomiconâ??s cosmology & word-view very similar to Epicureanism? A defense of L. Sprague de Campâ??s pioneering bio of Lovecraft. And â??Have you seen the new bio, In the Mountains of Madness, by W. Scott Poole? Not bad!)â?? Did Lovecraft know any languages besides English?  Have you ever thought of starting a Patreon for The Lovecraft Geek? More episodes? I'd even be down with The Lovecraft Geek riffing on the work of other weird, horror, or sword and sorcery authors, etc., e.g., Lin Carter. Could you talk a little (or a lot!) about your thoughts on Arkham House, your favorite titles, the ones you own, the ones you'd like to own, etc? In "The Dunwich Horror," we read about "decayed" and "undecayed" branches of families in Dunwich. Does this actually have any meaning besides those who, like HPL, kept up a pathetic pretense of remaining "gentry" and those who no longer went to the trouble? Have you ever heard the adaptation of â??The Dunwich Horrorâ?? on the famed radio program "Suspense," featuring the great Ronald Coleman as Prof. Henry Armitage, who in this adaptation becomes the narrator. It can be heard at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRTsJnsrS_M
