Let's Talk About...

In 1937, H.P. Love­craft died pen­ni­less, alone, and unknown. Over the next near-cen­tu­ry, his short sto­ries would become ever­more promi­nent, influ­enc­ing some of the most tal­ent­ed writ­ers and direc­tors of the mod­ern age. From del Toro to Gaimen, King to Scott, Love­craft’s mythos per­me­at­ed the pub­lic con­scious­ness, rais­ing the late writer’s work to heights he wished for but nev­er saw.

This would be a sad sto­ry if not for Love­craft’s well-doc­u­ment­ed racism, elit­ism, and xeno­pho­bia. Still, his work per­sists. So what will we do about it?

On this episode of LTA, Jason dis­cuss­es the death of the author, and how we can enjoy the works of prob­lem­at­ic peo­ple, with­out per­pet­u­at­ing their ideas.
