Instead of the usual March Madness, why not sample something darker? Brandon Kawashima and Michelle Souliere have assembled a select body of new work in tribute to their eldritch literary idol, Howard Phillips Lovecraft, to coincide with the 75th anniversary of his death (March 15, 1937). Crawling chaos and other treasures from the deep dark spaces of our cosmos. Accursed imagery wrought in shadows and jeweled tones brought forth for your viewing pleasure. Make your March a little more interesting!
"But more wonderful than the lore of old men and the lore of books is the secret lore of ocean. ... Ocean is more ancient than the mountains, and freighted with the memories and the dreams of Time."
--H.P. Lovecraft, from his short story "The White Ship"
