Happy Birthday Old Man!

hpl_happyBday124 years ago today, H.P. Lovecraft was born in Providence Rhode Island. (August 20th, 1890) During his lifetime H.P.L. knew only limited success as a writer. Today 124 years later he is considered one of the most important and influential horror writers of the 20th century.

I can only guess at  what HPL would think about having his name spoken in the same breath as his hero Poe. I imagine he would act like a gentleman and deny his importance or even make fun of his own fame. But part of me would like to believe that deep down inside it would give him some unspoken joy and satisfaction.

Happy Birthday “Old Man” and thank you for everything!
