Edgar Allan Poe and H.P. Lovecraft: As everyone likes a good ghost story at Christmas, Alex Fitch chairs a panel discussion on Edgar Allan Poe and H.P. Lovecraft, the two American heavyweights of classic horror and fantastic literature, with contributors including novelists China Miéville and Denise Mina, and illustrators Mark Stafford and Alice Duke.
2011 is the 85th anniversary of Lovecraft’s seminal story The Call of Cthulu, the 80th anniversary of the character first appearing in another writer’s fiction (Robert E. Howard’s The Black Stone) and the 170th anniversary of the publication of The Murders in the Rue Morgue. The panelists discuss the influence of Lovecraft on genre fiction plus the use of the iconography of Poe in Goth culture and detective literature in front of an audience of fans and professionals including David Hine and Al Davison. Originally broadcast 02/12/11 on Resonance FM
(Recorded at the British Film Institute as part of this year’s SCI-FI-LONDON festival).
