“Do not let your fire go out spark by irreplaceable spark... Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real…. It is possible…. It’s yours. “ Ayn Rand (Atlas Shrugged)
August 20, 1890 On this day in Horror History, Howard Phillips Lovecraft was born. More commonly known by his pen name H.P. Lovecraft, the works of the literary genius have inspired and intertwined with hundreds of films in the last decade, and thousands of popular culture mediums have paid homage to the brilliance in the macabre that was seemingly fluid to the American Author. Everything from film to music, video games to artists worldwide have been impacted by the tales of Cthulhu and mythology behind the ageless sagas which has become home for horror and science fiction aficionados since Lovecraft’s passing unto today. A life cut short by cancer, it was the perilous disease that would attack Lovecraft’s small intestine and take the author from the awestruck world. Lost but never forgotten, he will always be the irrefutable father of horror, and the mind at which a legacy was born.
“From even the greatest of horrors, irony is seldom absent.”- H.P Lovecraft Horror Central
