H P Lovecraft

For fans of Lovecraft, or Cthulu, or things horrific, here’s an essay on the author and his work that is certainly worth a read. Especially interesting is the discussion of the theme of cosmic indifference which is part of his work. Here’s a line from the last paragraph:

Lovecraft succeeds as a writer because he raises the terrible possibility of cosmic indifference, not because he resolves it.
