Attention H.P. Lovecraft fans: “NecronomiCon Providence” August 23rd -25th, 2013

necronomicon-providence-capital-building-riTo say that I am excited about this upcoming conference would be a gross understatement.

Check out their website for details.  And if you’d like to help the organizers bootstrap even more cool events for the conference (as well as receive some most excellent rewards for yourself), check out their Kickstarter campaign.

Here’s a summary:

NecronomiCon Providence is a many-faceted convention exploring the works of Howard Phillips Lovecraft and fellow writers of Weird Tales, past and present.
Our theme is The Rational and the Supernatural – an exploration of the intersection of science and art that lays at the foundation of the “Cthulhu Mythos” genre.
We seek to pay proper homage to The Old Gentleman of Providence and his literary offspring, including numerous activities to highlight the town HPL loved and called home – PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island.

Subjects to be explored over a three-day event:

  • Literature – Horror, Sci-Fi, Mythology, Weird Tales of all sorts…
  • Science and Exploration – Astronomy, Archaeology, Biology…
  • History – Primordial, Pre-Colombian, Colonial, 1920s…
  • Culture – Art, Cinema, Theater, Music, Poetry, Food, Bars, Tattoos…
One of the Kickstarter rewards, a bust of H.P. Lovecraft.

Like a call from the great depths of the oceans, or a discordant whistle from the dark reaches of the universe, I have heard the siren song of this most auspicious event.

I shall be in attendance.  Will you?

– John “Pathfinder” Lester
