Happy birthday! And here I was just figuring out the Dreamlands…

I think Lovecraft would have liked the picture. It gives him a certain gravitas he doesn't seem to have in photos, and he wished he lived in the era when men wore their hair like that. And their cuffs…

Damn! I totally forgot to get him a card!

Lovecraft's face always struck me as a perfect match for the stories he told.
I'm happy that I somewhat resemble him.

Happy birthday to the old gentleman from Providence. I'm sure he'd be as surprised as anyone that we are still reading and writing about him nowadays.

His face is definitely his face.

HPL fans should take a look at I've been enjoying it a lot.
