And have a Lovecrafty day

It's probably come up here a few times (especially during Halloween), but I'm a huge fan of H.P. Lovecraft and the Cthulhu Mythos. So as far as I'm concerned today should be a national holiday because it's ol' Howie's 119th birthday! (He continues to celebrate them, even though he long became a hideous, undying man-beast lolling about under the gibbering sea. What, you didn't know?)

To mark the occasion, I'd recommend a little reading material, namely Cthulhu Tales Vol. 1. This collection of stories single-handedly rekindled my dormant interest in Lovecraft's work, and I've been devouring both the originals and BOOM! Studios' Cthulhu-inspired titles ever since. So why don't you raise a glass of ichor and give a try?
