Lovecraftian Thing A Day No.85: To Quebec and the Stars
Today's item is a collection of Lovecraft's essays and various travelogues, including his famous description of Quebec. To Quebec and the Stars is a particular favourite HPL book of mine, in part because I've always found the title to be wonderfully evocative of the Lovecraftian milieu, but also because the travelogues put paid to the lie that Lovecraft was some sort of antisocial recluse who spent his life locked away in a musty attic feverishly penning weird tales. The essays in this volume are (I think I'm correcting in stating) now all available in the Collected Essays which Hippocampus Press offer in both hardcopy as well as in electronic format.
