Since today is basically a free day to work on your final project, I have only one question to ask: what is the best Lovecraftian story or novel you’ve come across lately? It doesn’t have to be from the man himself, just something in that vein that piqued your interest.
I’m never exactly on the cutting edge, so I only recently read the graphic novel version of Stephen King’s short story “N.” It was decidedly Lovecraftian in nature – and it had interesting art. It was posted as an animated series on the web before it came out as a graphic novel, but I didn’t know that until a few weeks ago. I can’t vouch for the animated version, but both the short story and the graphic novel adaptation are engaging.
I can also recommend “The Terror” by Dan Simmons. With an arctic expedition gone horribly awry, and something horrible and unknown out on the ice…it seems to fit. It’s partially based on a historical expedition, too. (Wait, did we mention that last year? I can’t remember.)
