Yesterday we watched the movie, "The Whole Wide World," concerning Robert E. Howard, the creator of Conan. H.P. Lovecraft was mentioned in passing, and tonight I found a site of Lovecraft's stories. I read "The Call of Cthulhu" and kinda sorta really enjoyed it -- despite the prose. I was saying to Gini how interesting it was, to see how Lovecraft's ideas of Elder Gods & Demons preceding Humanity has been so influential across the years, clearly influencing Joss Whedon and the writers of "Buffy" and "Angel."
