Or if not my books, then other people’s books. Books of people you like, or want to be nice to, or whatever. They are begging for your reviews. They dream of your reviews. If their books get enough reviews, the algorithm notices!

Yeah, that’s a lot of acronyms. Unpacked: the HP Lovecraft Historical Society is doing a buy-one, get-one free sale on the electronic versions of its Dark Adventure Radio Theater shows. This is a good deal, even if I’m not going to do it: I already have them all (well, except for Masks of Nylarathotep, because if I had $250 to spare I’d spend it on publishing more short stories) in physical form, complete with the binders and everything. But if you just want the DARTs and don’t care about the props, this is an excellent deal. They’re very good radio plays.
I am looking forward to GUILLERMO DEL TORO’S CABINET OF CURIOUSITIES.
“Dreams in the Witch-House” and “Pickman’s Model*” are both interesting choices for inclusion, in that they are both some of Lovecraft’s most intimate works. I might have swapped out “The Terrible Old Man” for “Witch-House,” but then: I’m not Guilllermo del Toro, so what do I know?
