Lovecraft Documentary

Post by BigBossMan » Mon May 06, 2013 4:00 pm

I apologize if this is a dupe post, as this came out in 2008. Anyone had a chance to watch it? Just curious as to its accuracy.

Haven't compared to Joshi bio or anything, but couldn't find anything wrong right of the top at least. Should watch it again after reading the bio I suppose.

Saw it on YouTube a few weeks ago. A lot of good commentary from modern authors inspired by Lovecraft, including Neil Gaiman and Peter Straub. Gaiman's comments alone make it worth watching.

Not sure about the accuracy (I assume you mean the accuracy of Lovecraft's biographical data), since that's not something I particularly care about, but overall it seemed to jive with the commonly accepted info, FWIW.
