    Yesterday was the 122nd birthday of the Father of Modern Horror, H.P. Lovecraft. I have always loved the Cthulhu mythos, but have put off reading Lovecraft for years.

    The first couple stories I read were like reading Stephen King, but better, more descriptive and dark and scary. Now I understood why during my teen years my older friends teased me for reading King instead of Lovecraft.

    The first thing I purchased when I got my tablet was The Complete Works of HPL for the Kindle App. I am currently reading Dagon.

    I know a lot of people have problems with him because he was racist and xenophobic. So was my Grandmother and I still loved her.

    Nice. I too like lovecraft. The Cthulhu Mythos were my drawing point into his works...
    I forget the first story of his that I read, but it was spooky. And the older gods are with us. :D

    May the Old Ones give him snorkel gear for his birthday...and chocolate cake. Totally chocolate cake with little Cthulhu sprinkles.
