    Mr Lovecraft, I suppose...

    I've recently been to Providence, RI. For a hard-core fan of Lovecraft's works it's a moving experience...

    I was actually reading the Shunned House the other night, and realized that I live like two blocks away from it. RISD is kinda weird like that.

    What's the address for Lovecraft's house? I recognize the other places, but can't place that one.

    That last house is a trip. I wonder if it was originally designed that way?

    I'm a huge Lovecraft fan also..

    Maybe it's just me but I wouldn't go near any of those places after dark. I always have the uncomfortable sensation that Lovecraft was clued into something, somehow.

    what a boring marker for H.P. ...

    I would expect non-euclidean curvature and tentacles reaching up through the ground.

    Thanks for sharing.

    SKETCHBOOK COMING SOON!

    darkroastedblend has a few Lovecraft pages with illustrations. I like the Great Race of Yith.

    I am not that familiar with Lovecraft's work actually, but I am a big Quake 1 fan. It would be nice to adapt some (more) of Lovecraft's creatures to the Quake universe.

    I did use some of his creatures in my Megaman Legends project.


    Also at darkroastedblend, a Gazurtoid and Umgah sighting a bit down?

    Noah Bradley You're lucky! I think College Hill is a lovely place to live. The address of Lovecraft's house is 10 Barnes Street (of other Lovecraft's houses one was demolished and another was moved).

    Elam Yes, Fleur des Lys was designed in that fancy way by a Providence artist.

    Prometheus|ANJ You should definitely read some of them man, the atmosphere he creates is unique.

    Like this?

    Mr Lovecraft, I suppose...

    Well, I've read little of Lovecraft's works (Chtulhu, Rats in the Walls, The Hounds of Tyndalos), but I'm a huge fan of Allan Poe. They both seem to focus on the grimm side of the spectrum (even if Poe was a little bit more... Poetic, to put it that way), and I have to say Poe's death was a little lovecraftian.

    No wonder the guy wrote such bonkers stuff...his HOUSE is made out of non-euclidean geometry! Seriously, that house would drive anyone mad, haha.

    I visited his grave yesterday! It was great--a really gorgeous cemetery. I'd recommend the trip to anyone who has the option.
