If we date the inception of the mythos to “Dagon” (written July 1917), then July 2017 will be the 100th anniversary. Five years to go. Time to start doing some tentative planning?

Some ideas:

* Publication of a fully searchable “Selected Letters” in digital form.

* Lovecraft research library, containing a copy of all the scholarship ever published on the man and his work.

* Major conference.

* Global online film festival, with major sponsorship for a competition for new animated films of Lovecraft’s work.

* Major publicity push to try to recover ‘lost’ letters and other items from attics, archives, personal effects etc.

* Publication of a complete Lovecraft Studies archive set, in digital form.

* Worldwide sugarcraft cake-decoration competition.
