    Phil Plait’s book if fantastic, for the record.
    My copy of the annotate Supernatural Horror In Literature is on its way!

    This is going to be a long series if we’re going to go at about 8 sentances a month.

    Great show! My girlfriend even liked it, she shares Chads sense of impending doom when good things happen.great commentary from you both on lovecraft’s treatise.
    6.66 is a steal. You both deserve the support happy to pay.

    This was one of the most interesting shows you’ve done, so much stuff in that essay! Insightful and fascinating discussion and only 3 paragraphs in. I’m looking forward to the next 22 years as you get through 3 paragraphs a month!

    As incredible as it may seem, this is the most amazing reading jorney of all the opus of Lovecraft literature. I can’t even cound the number of good authors I’m right now enjoying thanks to that treatise.

    As for the “puerile freudian symbolism”… it goes without saying.

    When good things happen to me, I too wait for the other shoe to drop. Pessimism and cynicism rock!

  • Reber Clark on

    This essay is the cornerstone. I loved this episode and hope that the “in-depth-ed-ness” continues throughout. Well done.
