Erol asked me to pass along some details about this Kickstarter project that he's doing art for:

Erol Otus in email to grodog wrote:Heya Allan, Ezra Claverie has authored a "Lovecraftical Metatext" to which I'm contributing illustrations.  It's quite an interesting project.

The KS project is @ ... ical-metat and looks pretty interesting, especially if you're an HPL or CoC fan.   A quick blurb:

The Shadow out of Providence comprises a play and two short stories. Unlike most texts that draw inspiration from the work of the Providence fantasist Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937), these do not strive to horrify the reader by revealing the bleakness of an unsympathetic universe, or monstrosities lurking beneath everyday life. The book is thus not Lovecraftian, in the usual sense.

Instead, it is "Lovecraftical" (to coin a term). It treats Lovecraft the writer, the thinker, and the cultural phenomenon, rather than the sliver of his work on which most writers fixate (one that he sometimes dismissed as "Yog-Sothothery").

Enjoy! :D

This is the first Kickstarter to which I've been tempted to contribute... Even if I don't, it was cool to read the background blurb on EO, and find out I've been hearing his voice for months while my kids play Skylanders, and didn't even know it!
