HP Lovecraft

Post by chigozie » Fri 8. Jul 2011, 20:22

Died 1937. Librivox has a Lovecraft collection here: http://librivox.org/collected-public-do ... lovecraft/, but it doesn't include several of his most famous works. Wikisource has most of the texts: http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Author:H._P._Lovecraft. Thoughts?

I tend to be careful with Wikisource, since they don't always state where they took the text from, but the ones I've checked from your list look fine I think.

Welcome :)

PG Australia has a pretty exhaustive collection of Lovecraft's works. http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks06/0600031h.html

As you may know the US copyright status of Lovecraft's post-1922 works is very unclear. For this reason, LV doesn't accept suggestions of the projects involving his works published after that year. I would like to read some of the HPL stuff for legamus, either as a solo thing or (preferably) as group projects.

My first suggestion would be a non-fiction essay "Supernatural Horror in Fiction" published in installments between 1925 and 1927. It is divided into 8 sections, ranging from less than 2000 to less than 6000 words.

Lovecraft would be nice to have.
Everything shorter than 8000 words is very welcome here: http://legamus.eu/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=313

"Supernatural Horror in Fiction" you can start as solo or group project. I'm afraid for a group project you will need a very long breath but that shouldn't hold you back.
Have you ever BCed for LV? It's basically the same here. Maintain the MW and answer claims, questions and uploaded recordings. In addition the BC should download each section and save it locally. The upload links don't live long enough.
I'd be happy to MC for you.

The work as a whole will definitely be longer than 8000 words. You're right that BCing a group effort is a lot of work and a very protracted task, and that's why I'll just do it as a solo project.
