Lovecraft Country: the Big Idea

by Matt Ruff on February 17, 2017

I wrote an essay about Lovecraft Country for The Big Idea over at John Scalzi’s Whatever blog. It’s up today, and you can read it here. (And if you’re feeling nostalgic, you can also check out my 2012 Big Idea essay for The Mirage.) Thanks to John for the space!

Also:

Last night’s reading at Third Place Books in Seward Park was a lot of fun. If you missed it, your next chance to see me live will be on Tuesday, March 21, at 7 PM, when I’ll be appearing “in conversation” with my friend Nisi Shawl, author of Everfair, at Elliott Bay Book Company.

Thanks to everyone who participated in yesterday’s Reddit AMA! If you missed it, you can read the questions and answers here.

Tomorrow night, February 16, I’ll be reading from Lovecraft Country, answering audience questions, and signing books at Third Place Books’ Seward Park store, starting at 7:30 PM. I hope to see some of you there.
