Happy birthday H.P. Lovecraft

Beefy Levinson noticed that today was H.P. Lovecraft's birthday when he awoke in the Stygian darkness of the early hours. An eldritch iridescence peeked through his bedroom door. He could hear the indescribable gibbering of some fetid antediluvian monstrosity. He tore open his door only to be confronted by an inconceivable landscape with noisome non-Euclidean geometry. And there, in all it's unutterable horror was a squamous, rugose, tentacled, ululating, fungoid blasphemy which began yelling, "Everything you know is wrong, black is white, up is down, short is long, and everything you thought was just so important doesn't matter, everything you know is wrong, just forget the words and sing along, all you need to understand is everything you know is wrong!"

  1. For a writer, he sure does use the phrase "it was indescribable" a lot..

    1. If he described it, you'd go mad just like many of his protagonists.

  2. Not sure HPL is good material for Christians. It is full of magic, spells and works of satanism. Some works, like the Horror at Red Hook, contain lenghty spells in an unknown language. I stay clear of his work.
