Lovecraft’s Haunted Head

Some people regret that HPL was a racist, because it would be so much EASIER to admire him if he were not. A pox on easy! It’s like, for me, being a gay Mormon, difficult and absurd and fabulous. The fact that one of Lovecraft’s greatest admirers and defenders is a man of dark skin is just so deliciously RIGHT. We admire (and some of us freakishly idolize) H. P. Lovecraft for what he did right, for those qualities in him that are absolutely estimable.”  — Wilum Hopfrog Pugmire
