Illustrations of H.P. Lovecraft’s “The Dunwich Horror”

The Horror by Sigrid Rødli

As anyone who reads my blog with regularity knows I am a big fan of H.P. Lovecraft. Heck he is a major influence in both The Stars Were Right and Old Broken Road. You can imagine my delight when I stumbled across these illustrations for The Dunwich Horror created by Norwegian illustrator
Sigrid Rødli. There’s something very surreal, simple, and mysterious about these pieces, I feel like it perfectly captures the creepy atmosphere of H.P. Lovecraft’s work.

Young Americans Are Reading

Chalk this one up as good news for writers (and civilization in general.) A new study from Pew Research Center’s Internet and American Life Project has shown that young Americans are reading and they’re reading more than older Americans.

“We found that about 8 in 10 Americans under the age of 30 have read a book in the past year. And that’s compared to about 7 in 10 adults in general, American adults. So, they’re reading — they’re more likely to read, and they’re also a little more likely to be using their library.”
