    Truly fantastic!

    I was excited about this — but became disenchanted when the one fellow confess’d that he does not like Lovecraft’s fiction. I am utterly enchanted by his fiction and am currently doing a series of video commentaries on the majority of ye tales. As a full-time professional Lovecraftian writer, I am constantly returning to the fiction and finding it more wonderful, original, exceptional in every way. Even Grandpa’s racism, so ugly in his personal makeup, is utilized in brilliant fashion in the fiction. But, even though this one confession has marred my interest in your project, the scenes in Providence — that magick city! — are so fine that I am absolutely looking forward to watching ye finish’d project. Wish I had funds to contribute, but being a Mythos writer these days is not a path to gold.

      You’ll be glad to know that Jim has since become a fan! I also find Lovecraft’s fiction absolutely wonderful– but for some, it takes a little adjustment when first exposed to the unique style of Grandpa Theobald. I like giving that side of the Lovecraft experience, and Jim’s outside viewpoint has been a very interesting one in the collaboration.

      Thanks for your kind words re: the scenes of Providence! It is my great pleasure to record the beauty of such a magickal towne.

      Best of luck in your efforts, and keep in touch! I’d love to know more about your work. We’ve got a new fan page on facebook for keeping up with the latest. Thanks for your input!

        I am a profound cynic (and a bit o’ a bitch), so that often comers across in me comments. I have “liked” the Facebook fan page. As a said in a rather snotty comment I’ve just posted elsewhere, the moment when you knock on ye front door of the Shunned House — ye door opens — AND YE ENTER IN — had me utterly riveted!!! I spent four days in Providence, staying at ye B&B directly across the street from ye Shunned House; & I wou’d often linger outside that lower level door and ache to cross ye threshold into the nameless cellar. While in Providence, S. T. Joshi (in town doing work at ye John Hay Library) led me and some chums on an exhausting walking tour of Lovecraftian sites. Gawd, how I love Providence! And your film seems to have beautifully captured the city, with lovely photography. So, despite being an evil cynic in all things — I am looking forward to your film!
