My tale begins in a monstrously beautiful kind of night. It’s Halloween in Rhode Island, the land where the master of horror tales, H.P. Lovecraft, devoted his life to creativity. Throughout Lovecraft’s haunted lifetime, the son of Providence battled his demons over the craft of writing. His artwork helped him bravely fight insanity and fully embrace darkness.
“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear. And the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.” – H.P. Lovecraft
While I wander in the streets and alleys of the unknown, I pray for his guidance. I ask him permission to devour his words. I celebrate his brilliance. I pay reverence to his existence. I welcome H.P. Lovecraft, the lord of darkness, to walk before me.
