Great 120th Birthday Presents to/from H. P. Lovecraft!

Happy 120th. Birthday H.P.L.!

Freebies released in celebration of H. P. Lovecraft's 120th. birthday on 20-August-2010, and to stir up excitement for the possible making of the Universal Studios 3D version of "At the Mountains of Madness" by Guillermo del Toro and James Cameron; and as a celebration by Will Hart of the 20th. anniversary of his being at Lovecraft's grave-side on his 100th. birthday.

Released during the last few hours in MP3 Format on:
http://cthulhuwho1.com
(The audio companion to the CthulhuWho1 Flickr collections.)

"Fungi from Yuggoth"
H. P. Lovecraft's complete 36 sonnet set; in an all-new recording by William (Will) Hart; in single file, and multiple file versions. A dark poetry reading if there ever was one...

"What If H. P. Lovecraft Had Lived Into The 1960's?"
A 163 minute panel recording in six parts, of Professor Dirk W. Mosig, Professor Donald R. Burleson, J. Vernon Shea, Fritz Leiber, Jr., and S.T. Joshi at the 36th World Science Fiction Convention in Phoenix in 1978. A must-have for Lovecraftians!

Plus, behind the scenes recordings including a live reading by Don Burleson of his darkly funny, "The Last Supper."

And more audio goodies too!


And there are now over 1200 Lovecraft, Cthulhu, and Providence related images for the taking at the CthulhuWho1 Flickr page at:

All of the above items (and more to come) were created in honor of H. P. Lovecraft; but since he’s not here with us, it’s up to you, and everyone you can share them with to enjoy them!
