Oh R'lyeh?

Rather appropriately, I've just returned from a family vacation in New England, much of it spent in Danvers and Salem*. I couldn't help but smile upon reading some of the street names as we passed by: Orne, Warren, etc.

Happy birthday, Mr. Lovecraft!!!


*Unfortunately, there are no longer so many witch-haunted small towns remaining in that part of the country  as there are Dunkin Donuts-haunted strip malls. More's the pity. :(

  1. Alan Moore still took a pretty swing at a Lovecraft story in the modern setting. Neonomicon is worth a look, but he didn't quite get the horror of the unexplained that makes the Mythos stories so scary.
