H. P. Lovecraft Book Club: Series 7: Episode 8: Shadow Over Innsmouth (Part 1)

In this episode I give my thoughts on the early pages of THE SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH by H. P. Lovecraft. One of his most important stories, for many reasons.

H. P. Lovecraft Book Club: Series 7: Episode 7: At the Mountains of Madness (Part 4)

The finale of my coverage of AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS. So what did Danforth see? That is the most compelling mystery at the close of this epic story. Next up, SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH.

Episode 454: Barbara Tuchman: The Guns of August (Part 1)

So glad to be back with a volume of The Library of America. This episode will begin a one-month series exploring THE GUNS OF AUGUST and THE PROUD TOWER, beginning with the opening chapters of GUNS. The warnings of the Great War speak to the Cold War in rather direct ways.

H. P. Lovecraft Book Club: Series 7: Episode 4: At the Mountains of Madness (Part 1)

One of the more popular H. P. Lovecraft stories is AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS. It may really be the best example of Lovecraft's later style. The opening pages focus on science and exploration. I give my thoughts on these early sections.

H. P. Lovecraft Book Club: Series 7: Episode 3: Whisperer in Darkness (Part 3)

The finale of my review of THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS by H. P. Lovecraft. Things get nice and cosmic and strange in the final chapters of this story, but for me the early chapters contain the most interesting elements.
