“The covers of this book are too far apart”*…

As we turn the page, we might send eerie birthday greetings to Howard Phillips Lovecraft; he was born on this date in 1880.  A pioneer of “horror” fiction and SciFi who was almost unknown in his lifetime, H.P. Lovecraft has become one of the most influential writers of the Twentieth Century– Jorge Luis Borges, Joyce Carol Oates, and Stephen King, among many other writers, comic artists, and filmmakers, have all proclaimed their indebtedness.
