I read a lot of Lovecraft years ago, but back then it wasn't so easy to discover influences and related work; so when today it occurred to me to do a few seconds' research on The King in Yellow, Carcosa, and The Yellow Sign, it was quite a revelation. If anyone else is similarly ignorant, looks like you (and I) have some interesting reading ahead of us - Ambrose Bierce, Robert W. Chambers, as well as more directly Cthulhu mythos authors such as August Derleth (such a good boy).
Thanks @Stu :-)
Also, check out the Good Friends of Jackson Elias as they in their podcast (episode 154 and the next few ones) did a series of episodes on just these themes.
AndreasDavour That looks fascinating. Many thanks!
For you who still hasn't enough podcasts to fill your daily commute, exercise or hours of feverish madness in that accursed ancestral home, I highly recommend The H.P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast for everything 'weird fiction'.
I too love RWC's stuff.
Not related to Murmurs, but if you're checking out writers relating to HPL, I strongly advocate reading a bit of Arthur Machen, especially "The great god Pan".
These don't directly connect with Murmurs but if you're after other interesting adaptations of Lovecraft there was a BBC podcast that has adapted both The Case of Charles Dexter Ward and The Whisperer in the Darkness. Definitely worth a listen (but start with Season 1) and has given me ideas of how to run a Cthulhu game in the future.
Nick Cage is starring in the Color Out of Space coming out this year...so there's that.
