A true alternative subculture is one that not only questions the social status quo but poses viable solutions to some of the perceived underlying problems. Difference from the norm is not the same as superiority to the mainstream unless it can be  argued that the difference is positing a better way.

That's a fantastic link, thank you; I shall celebrate by burning out my eyeballs staring at the computer screen and reading through them.

You can also find the works of Sheridan le Fanu here http://www.gutenberg.org/browse/authors/l#a272 he's generally not as well known, but any fan of Poe and Lovecraft should enjoy his stories.

I'm a fan of le Fanu.  Thank you.  And I love all the others mentioned too.

I spent part of last night reading 'Herbert West, Reanimator'.  Once one gets the off-handracism (Lovecraft was both a racist and an anti-Semite), it's still pretty good.  That is, if 'good' means one likes reading about cannibalism.  Grin

Fantastic link to the Lovecraftian stories!

I've had such a long, sordid love affair with the words of Lovecraft, that sometimes at night I imagine the angles of my room intersecting in strange, non-euclidian ways. ;-)

Thank you for posting the link.

wouldn't that look kind of like a star wars set made by M.C. Eschar?
anyway I am fully confident now that the game Call of Cthulu has nothing to do with Cthulu at all (outside being part of the mythos) but is more of an interactive version of the shadow over Insmouth, which is good, I cannot wait to see Dagon make an aperance in the game.

This site is great. Ia Ia Cthulhu Ftagn all the way! Internet books are a necessity to me, seeing as i can't check anything out of a library, but i'd rather not talk about that.

hear hear (about the library) I owe them like $70 from back in third grade... all because I couldn't drive and take back those books on time myself, lesson learned: do not rely on my family members

No Lovecraft on this site, but they do have some other great works, including a great deal of Haussmann and one of AndrĂ© de Lorde's plays. Also, I mean... The name.  Wink

I was very disappointed by The Call of Cthulhu game. I found the controls irksome and the storyline very inflexible. It was often as if I didn't even really need to be pushing buttons at all. Like a film that only progresses by a tedious mechanism fueled by my frustrations.

I much preferred the game Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened, which sets our detective against the cult of Cthulhu! It's a fantastic literary crossover! The game was a bit short, but every second of it was stimulating and exciting. I'm not sure if it is out here in the States; I got to preview the game shortly after it was released in Germany, and at that time it wasn't slated for American release for months.
