This is the inherent moral problem with Lovecraft's cosmic view; and why I and many people take issue with Derleth's modifications of the Mythos... I hate to make it a matter of religious predilection, but Derleth was a lapsed Catholic whose views were steeped in notions of good vs. evil, black and white, something either is or isn't.
As much as I don't want to create a religion thread, I have to ask if this is a common conclusion? I have to confess that I have only recently started to delve into external analysis of Lovecraft's work. I ask this because that was the first thing that popped into my head when I read a little background on A.D. I don't mean to pigeon hole the guy, it just seemed like a piece of the puzzle that fell right into place and I literally went "Ahhhh". I was raised Catholic myself, and lost what little faith remained when I was in my early teens. What is funny is that in a very indirect wacked out way that had nothing to do with his actual work, I owe my atheism to Lovecraft. I'll spare everyone, but It's actually a pretty funny story. Maybe I'll stick it up in General Discussion.
...all of these were points that Mr. Price has made in his Dunwich Cycle publication, yet he didn't mention any of it in the Podcraft. Lack of time I suppose.
Hhrm, they did an entire episode with the stuff that didn't fit in when Joshi was a guest. How about an episode (or a gift for donating) that is a collection of conversations with guests that didn't make it in due to time constraints? Is there enough material?
