A Defense of Lovecraft's Writing

Daniel McCarthy has written an excellent article defending HP Lovecraft's prose from detractors who consider him a hack.

Today I sent in a membership form for the Society for the Study of Disability in the Middle Ages. This is a subject I find very interesting due to my own "invisible" disabilities and involvement with a medieval recreation group.
