I am writing to tell fellow cultists about an illustrated book called
_The Shadow out of Providence_, a metafictional response to the
writings of H. P. Lovecraft. Two stories and a play re-work
Lovecraft’s themes and plots, and celebrate his influence, while
critiquing his racism and his nostalgia for aristocracy.
Three artists illustrate the book. Erol Otus, of early Dungeons and
Dragons cult fame
illustrates "The Vostok Dossier." Dan Zettwoch
illustrates the play "Facts Concerning
the Late Eadweard Thurston and his Family." And Timothy Hutchings
illustrates "Diving to Dunwich."
We have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the design and
printing of the book:
If we meet our goal, backers will get rewards ranging from copies of
the book (digital or hardcover), to numbered prints or original works
by the artists, to copies of the book handmade and bound by the
graphic designer. Even small pledges will help us make this obsessive
little project a reality.
Please help us by pledging money to the project, or spreading the word
among friends and HPL fans. Join us in the _Shadow out of Providence_!
PS: I just updated the Kickstarter campaign page with some new
illustrations by Otus and Zettwoch.
