I just listened to your discussion of “The Tree & The Cats of Ulthar”.
During the discussion you mentioned that “It’s time for another Tree story.”
There is a bit of a tie-in to this.
The esteemed SF writer Gene Wolfe wrote a novel called “An Evil Guest” which is overtly set in a Lovecraftian world (he dedicates the novel to Lovecraft). There is a huge powerful sea alien that has called Earth his home over 100,000 years. He’s called the “Storm God”. Other aliens are allowed to come to Earth as refugees but they are prohibited from openly revealing themselves to the Storm God’s “cattle”. But the Storm God himself has some kind of indirect relations with human governments and direct relations with various human cults.
So here’s the tie-in. Wolfe wrote a short story (probably before the novel) that is set in the same world and the same South Seas island setting called “The Tree Is My Hat”. Like “The Tree” it is a strange story with an unstated subplot (as Wolfe is inclined to do).
I wondered, when I read “The Tree” whether it might illuminate “The Tree Is My Hat”. Unfortunately, I did not identify any parallels beyond the obscurity of the story and backstory.
4K? Seriously. A Kickstarter for 4K? You guys should’ve just asked me outright. I make that in a day. Everyday. Sorry for being an arrogant piece of shit, but I would’ve been more than willing to help.
Lovecraft is very important to me, and I feel bad I couldn’t have funded the whole thing.
Dear Chad and Chris,
Curiously enough I too just re-read “The Tree.” I am going to be a panelist at the Lovecraft Convention in Providence in August and to prepare I am re-reading all of Lovecraft’s original stories. Another tree story you might want to read is Caitlin R. Kiernan’s The Red Tree. She will be at the convention as well.
For your information, after I re-read a story, I go and listen to your pod cast about it and some of the pod casts are totally funny to listen to and you guys have great insights as well.
I hope to meet the both of you in Providence, I did contribute to the Kick-starter to pay your travel expenses. I know some great restaurants there as well. I lived in Providence many years and was raised in nearby Pawtucket.
Take care guys,
Ron St. Pierre
You guys are awesome!
My interest in Lovecraft literature started from the guys over at the “Stuff you should know” podcast when they read “The Tomb” in one of their shows. But while i can say they were the ones that started my interest into the stories of Lovecraft, you guys were the ones to strengthen and allow my interest to transform into a great flourishing appreciation for the writings of this champion of weird fiction know as Lovecraft. For this I thank you and look forward to listening to the rest of your shows.
If you were to do a Ransom for the complete Reading of “The Case of Charles Dexter Ward” I will donate handsomely for its release FYI
Hey Chris & Chad =) Please send a short (1-2 paragraph) bio for each of You for The NecronomiCon-Providence Program Guide. JUST saw Niels’ post on Your *successful* Kickstarter so since YOU’re attendees they should be *included*. Cheers to YE too, Messr. St. Pierre =)

Whilst I must confess I haven`t listened to every episode of the H.P Lovecraft Literary Podcast,I am however a huge fan! Just wondered if you had ever considered doing an episode on Alan Moore`s interpretation/contribution to the Cthulhu Mythos. My dream episode would be him sitting down with you guys discussing his various Lovecraft themed works ( The Courtyard,Neonomicon,the Yuggoth Cultures ect).Besides being generally awesome,this could make a timley,topical show,given a recent article which stated Moore`s intention to write a prequel to the Neonomicon!!
Keep up the good work guys!
