[Tour de Lovecraft] Introduction, Not By S.T. Joshi

Well, I've figured out what I want to do for my multi-entry series for this year: the "Tour de Lovecraft."

Each day, unless I've got something better to post, or I'm away from my keyboard, I'll discuss a Lovecraft story. This will get me marinating in HPL as I write Trail of Cthulhu for Pelgrane, and for each story I'll just pop off something that occurs to me; usually something short, usually something involving Lovecraft. We'll go until we're all sick of it, or until we get to "The Shadow Out of Time," story number 51 in this sequence, which on previous form will be in about two-three months or so.

And because it's no fun if it's not in some kind of order, I'll just be going down the contents page of the three Lovecraft volumes in the Penguin Classics series. (Let me just type that again. "Lovecraft volumes in the Penguin Classics series." Mmmmm. Feel the burn, Edmund Wilson.) We'll go in order, so we start with the first story, "Dagon," in the first volume, The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories -- right now.
