  6. P.S. Sorry, the text linked above contains many corruptions, likely having been keyed in from the early Arkham House editions put out by the sloppy and indeed personally corrupt August Derleth. A human shoggoth if ever one was. Here is a text that looks like it was entered from the final corrected edition prepared from original typescript (on file with most of HPL's extant papers at the Brown U. library; many on display under glass during that Aug. '90 event) by Joshi: http://www.hplovecraft.com/writings/texts/fiction/soi.aspx
  7. More on (Cthulhu Prayer Breakfast celebrant, among much else) Bob Price... H. P. Lovecraft scholarship As editor of the journal Crypt of Cthulhu[27] (published by Necronomicon Press) and of a series of Cthulhu Mythos anthologies,[28][29][30] Price has been a major figure in H. P. Lovecraft scholarship and fandom for many years.[31] In essays that introduce the anthologies and the individual stories, Price traces the origins of Lovecraft's entities, motifs, and literary style. The Cthulhu Cycle, for example, saw the origins of Cthulhu the octopoid entity in Alfred, Lord Tennyson's "The Kraken" (1830) and particular passages from Lord Dunsany, while The Dunwich Cycle points to the influence of Arthur Machen on Lovecraft's "The Dunwich Horror." Price's religious background often informs his Mythos criticism, seeing gnostic themes in Lovecraft's fictional god Azathoth[32] and interpreting "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" as a kind of initiation ritual.[33] Most of the early Cthulhu books by Chaosium were overseen by Price; his first book was The Hastur Cycle (1993), an anthology of short stories which traced the development of a single Lovecraftian element, and this was followed by Mysteries of the Worm (1993), a collection of Robert Bloch's Mythos fiction.[34] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_M._Price#H._P._Lovecraft_scholarship

  10. Great novella 'Dagon' by Fred Chappell... https://www.sfsite.com/08a/dg301.htm Chappell was Guest of Honor at the 6th or so NecronomiCon in Providence ca. 1997, a marvelous annual for a time scholarly/fan follow-on event from that 1990 scholarly centenary conference, organized mostly by the Necronomicon Press people, plus Joshi and a handful of others. It lapsed after a decade or so, but recently looked to have been reborn, if only limpingly: http://necronomicon-providence.com/enter/
  11. The Shadow over Innsmouth H.P. Lovecraft During the winter of 1927–28 officials of the Federal government made a strange and secret investigation of certain conditions in the ancient Massachusetts seaport of Innsmouth. The public first learned of it in February, when a vast series of raids and arrests occurred, followed by the deliberate burning and dynamiting — under suitable precautions — of an enormous number of crumbling, worm-eaten, and supposedly empty houses along the abandoned waterfront. Uninquiring souls let this occurrence pass as one of the major clashes in a spasmodic war on liquor. Cont.: https://ebooks.adelaide.edu.au/l/lovecraft/hp/innsmouth/complete.html
