"lurker in the lobby" book mentions me

by sven at 10:00 am

I've been meaning to write about this for ages... And since I'm trying to encourage people to come to the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival tomorrow, now seems an apt moment.

Lurker In The Lobby: A guide to the cinema of H.P. Lovecraft is a recent book written by Andrew Migliore (founder of the filmfest) and John Strysik. If you're a fan of the genre, then this is a book that you cannot do without. It reviews essentially every Lovecraftian feature film, TV show, and short that has ever been created.

A page is devoted to Edward Martin III's Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath, which I had a microscopic role in animating.

The book also mentions Madness from the Sea -- my very first short film, which premiered at the Lovecraft Filmfest back in 2002. The synopsis:

Planets come into alignment, a storm erupts, and Cthulhu appears.

Well said! Accurate, and more succinct than I've ever been. ;-)

If you're interested in purchasing Lurker in the Lobby, I recommend buying it from Migliore directly, at the Arkham Bazaar. The book is also available via and bookstores such as Powell's (here).
