Need something to tide you over until the new Lovecraft Annual appears? New on is Lovecraft Studies #8 (Spring 1984). Not previously available online as a scan, it seems.


* “Demythologizing Cthulhu” by Robert M. Price. (Asking how seriously did Lovecraft take his creations, and how did he demythologise them as time went on?)

* “The Dunwich Chimera and Others” by Will Murray. (Possible undetected influence of classical myth on Lovecraft’s creations?)

* “Cthulhu’s Scald: Lovecraft and the Nordic Tradition” by Jason Eckhart. (Possible undetected influence of Nordic myth on Lovecraft’s creations?)

* “Lovecraft in the Foreign Press, 1971-1982” by S. T. Joshi.
