The title says it all. We offer a collection of 10 Lovecraftian websites you should check out. Feel free to add your recommendations.
Lovecraft is Missing
An original online graphic novel that appears every week, Lovecraft is Missing is worth a look, not only for the comic strip created by Larry Latham, but for the content that appears on its blog. There are interviews and articles on a variety of interesting subjects, such as occult detectives or pulp fiction.
The H.P. Lovecraft Archive
This archive is not a collection of Lovecraft’s works but as an extensive and annotated list of bibliographies, arranged by categories, of all of his work, both fiction and non-fiction, online, in print and on audio. It also includes a biography and a bibliography of works and events about Lovecraft and his fiction.
The Complete Works of H.P. Lovecraft
The title says it all. All of Lovecraft’s stories are collected on this website, ranging from early work such as “Dagon” to later classics like “At the Mountains of Madness”.
The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society
Home to Cthulhu Lives, a live action role-playing game, the Historical Society is a repository of nifty Lovecraftian content, including Dark Adventure Radio Theatre (radio play adaptations of Lovecraft stories) and free prop downloads (antique death certificates, library cards and more). Check out their latest effort, a movie adaptation of The Whisperer in Darkness, and explore all the cool stuff the Society has to offer.
The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft
This is the official site for the graphic novel of the same name from Image Comics. In the story, Lovecraft comes into contact with a mysterious book that makes his nightmares come true – literally. As of June, the graphic novel has been picked up for a possible film adaptation.
Scriptorium – H.P. Lovecraft
Lovecraft’s page on a site devoted to famous authors in literature (rather than horror), this includes a short biography, some literary analysis of his work, and some links to other sites.
H.P. Lovecraft Page
This page is relatively simple and a lot of the links are out of date. But it is also one of the older Lovecraft sites still up (since 1995) and includes a macabre collection of the webmaster’s photographs of New England sites related to Lovecraft’s life and works.
American gothic duo Nox Arcana has put out a Lovecraft-inspired album entitled Necronomicon, but their other creations, such as Grimm Tales or Transylvania, are also worth checking out if you enjoy the macabre, and concept albums.
The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets
The ultimate musical Lovecraft homage has been paid by The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, an alternative rock band from British Columbia. Cthulhu lovers agree: if you haven’t hear the Thickets, you’re not a real worshipper of the tentacloid Great Old One.
Unspeakable Vault of Doom
This cute, funny webcomic drawn by Francois Launet, chronicling the activities of Cthulhu and his friends, is just the kind of thing to bring a smile to an Innsmouthian’s face after a long day at work. It’s been around since 2004 and has served as the inspiration for a board game published by Pegasus Spiele.
