    Collecting uniquely uncanny tales from the master of American horror, H.P. Lovecraft's The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories is edited with an introduction and notes by S.T. Joshi in Penguin Modern Classics.

    Credited with inventing the modern horror tradition, H.P. Lovecraft remade the genre in the early twentieth century. Discarding ghosts and witches, and instead envisaging mankind at the mercy of a chaotic and malevolent universe, Lovecraft's unique works would prove to be a huge influence on modern horror writers such as Stephen King. This selection of short stories ranges from early tales of nightmares and insanity such as 'The Outsider' and 'The Rats in the Walls' through the grotesquely comic 'Herbert West - Reanimator' and 'The Hound', to the extraterrestrial terror of 'The Call of Cthulhu', which fuses traditional supernaturalism with science fiction. Including the definitive corrected texts, this collection reveals the development of Lovecraft's mesmerising narrative style and establishes him as a hugely influential - and visionary - American writer.

    Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937), born in Providence, Rhode Island was self-educated and lived in his birthplace all his life, working as a freelance writer, journalist, and ghostwriter. Using many pen names, he contributed his supernatural/horror and science fiction/fantasy stories to various pulp magazines but his reputation as a writer rests mainly on the 60 or so stories he published in the pulp magazine Weird Tales starting in 1923.

    If you enjoyed The Call of Cthulhu, you might also like Arthur Machen's The White People and Other Weird Stories, available in Penguin Classics.

    抄本恐怖与克苏鲁(不写了,见评论区吧)

    是的,我又来写克苏鲁神话了,这次是从媒介之变的角度写。 --- 先说一个基本的立场。媒介不是中性的信息载体,会因编译规则和动用时空资源的不同产生某种“偏向”,进而影响社会的存在方式,这是媒介环境学视角下的“传播偏向论”。按文化流通中主要媒介的不同,我们可 ... (more)

    克苏鲁神话、洛氏恐怖、鲁迅与狂人的知识

    之所以使用“洛氏恐怖”,是因为我只看过洛夫克拉夫特的文本,比如《印斯茅斯的阴影》、《敦威治恐怖事件》、《疯狂山脉》。克苏鲁神话发展到现在,已经成为了一个类似于马克思主义的庞大文化簇,各种二设、三设层出不穷。另一方面,由于核心人物洛夫克拉夫特和德雷斯在 ... (more)

    当代虚拟亚文化爱好者的选修教材,作者水平受时代限制,电波不合不必强读。
