My subscription copy of the FT just came through the door.

Nice picture of HPL and tentacles reaching up to a starry sky from behind a pyramid on the cover.

 

Headline:

Return of the Great Old Ones: H P Lovecraft and the horrors of ancient history.

 

Bet the article's disappointing though.

Wash your mouth out! 😉

 

The article is by James Holloway, and partly based on this lecture recorded at Treadwell's. He's a gamer, podcaster (Monster Man, going through the Monster Manual, Deities & Demigods, and the Fied Folio) and currently developing some medieval material for Call of Cthulhu.

For any other non subscribers who might want to pick this issue up it should be in the shops, UK ones anyway, on Thursday 19th July.

 

I'll probably buy a digital version to read on my iPad, which should be out on the same date. I've just bought the recent "Witchfinder General" issue for starters!

Then I'll look forward to reading it.

 

Didn't mean any offence obviously. In my experience the FT's cover story is outshone by one of the less promoted articles.

 

Last month had robots on the cover, a story totally eclipsed by the fascinating history of weird artist Antoine Wiertz and the study of how long a severed head remains alive after the moment it's struck from the body.
