So if you are a fan of Lovecraft or of weird fiction and you haven’t been over to the Lovecraft eZine, then you are seriously missing out. It’s the best run, most informative horror site on the web, and if you took the “horror” part out of the last clause, it might still be true. Here are five novels I’ve leanred about on that site that I’ll be reading and reviewing next.
- The Whisperer in Dissonance by Ian Welke. Described by the eZine as “a scary, disturbing novel that reads like a cross between H.P. Lovecraft and Philip K. Dick,” I’m not sure how I could not read this book.
- Displaced Person by Lee Harding. The eZine claims this is “one of the best Lovecraftian books you’ll ever read.” That’s enough for me. (if anyone knows where I can get a copy for less than $500, let me know)
- Reanimators by Pete Rawlik. I already own this book, and I know Pete, so it’s about time I read it. Helps that it’s gotten fantastic reviews.
- A Pretty Mouth by Molly Tanzier. I’m not sure if it’s the cover or the title or the praise it has received, but I’ve been wanting to read this one for a while.
- The Amulet by William Meikle. A hard-boiled PI and a Lovecraftian mystery. What more do you need?
