Lovecraft sullo scaffale

imageOggi vi segnaliamo due volumi, ispirati alla letteratura lovecraftiana, di due famosi autori contemporanei: Nick Mamatas e Matt Ruff.

I Am Providence, di Nick Mamatas, racconta di un misterioso omicidio durante una famosa convention di appassionati di H.P.Lovecraft: un mystery-horror divertente e oscuro, che integra le atmosfere originali dell’horror lovecraftiano con un meta-racconto in perfetto stile Mamatas. Il volume è previsto per agosto 2016.

Lovecraft Country, di Matt Ruff, è un romanzo ambientato negli Anni Cinquanta che permette al lettore di esplorare tematiche storiche come quella del pregiudizio razziale in un mondo di orrore mondano e fantastico. A questo link è possibile leggere un estratto del libro.
