What if Lovecraft had Lived into the 1960s? 1978 Panel Recording
In celebration of HPL's recent 120th birthday, Will Hart at CthulhuWho1
has released a set of recordings made at the 36th World Science Fiction Convention
(Phoenix, Arizona). The 1978 panel entitled "What if Lovecraft had Lived into the 1960's?
" featured Prof. Dirk W. Mosig, Prof. Donald R. Burleson, J. Vernon Shea, Fritz Leiber, and S.T. Joshi.
Released as a series of MP3s converted from the original magnetic tape recordings, it offers a fascinating look at insights into HPL studies at the time as well as the opportunity to hear from direct correspondents with Lovecraft such as Fritz Leiber.
Besides the original panel recording itself, there are also some "behind the scenes" files, including a reading by Prof. Donald R. Burleson of his story, The Last Supper
. Will has also released a set of readings of Lovecraft's poem cycle, The Fungi from Yuggoth
, for people to enjoy.
This is a rare audio treat for Lovecraft fans, and thanks again to Will Hart for sharing these with everyone.
