Lovecraftian Thing a Day No.147: H.P. Lovecraft Memorial Square Plaque Fridge Magnet
This is a replica (in the form of a fridge magnet) of the plaque which now graces the H.P. Lovecraft Memorial Square in Providence - not far from Prospect Terrace, one of Lovecraft's favourite haunts (I find myself suddenly taken by a strange, melancholic nostalgia just thinking about that spot). I imagine that Lovecraft would marvel at the fact that he'd be remembered within his beloved Providence in such a manner. In any case, this is produced by Gage Prentiss, creator of the actual plaque, and it remains a fond reminder of my last visit to the Sunset City.
