The power of Death

A capsule note on H.P. Lovecraft, noted weird fiction writer and father of modern horror, which is more of a link between Lovecraft and Stross than any real comment on Lovecraft himself. 

Other than a forgettable note on the author, this post is notable for one reason anyway: The line “As Lovecraft is dead, his ‘horror’ is rather over wordy…”

I can only imagine what will happen to my own works, already quite wordy, after my death!  What a fascinating idea, words mingling free of their creator’s gaze, free to multiply and procreate and turning regular works into wordy ones!

The mind boggles.
