Morning Roundup: I Spy, With My Cyclopean Eye, A Lovecraftian Road Trip!

Lovecraft Country Massachusetts Map

Today is H.P. Lovecraft’s birthday, and what better way to celebrate than with a road trip to such delightful spots as Innsmouth, Arkham, and Miskatonic University? For all the occasional—well, okay, constant—excesses of Lovecraft’s prose, his ability to create settings and imbue New England with utter horror have been hugely influential on the genre. The Obsidian Portal hosts the Lovecraft Country series, celebrating exactly this quality, and providing maps for all your non-Euclidian driving needs. Just keep the windows rolled up if you end up driving past any fish-men on a hot summer’s day.

The eldritch horrors of today’s Morning Roundup include: deep thoughts about Doctor Who, art from Frank Herbert’s Dune, and robot sex!

Regarding Schoenherr and Dune .... the March 1965 Analog cover is stunning . That said, his scratchboard interiors are incredible. It didn't hurt that most of the Dune serials were published when Analog was in the largeformat size and using nicepaper.
