    My plan is to crush my enemies, see them driven before me, and hear the lamentations of their women.

    I don't think a hurricane could blow that one away. It was last spotted in OH.:p

    2020 has not been a total waste for me – I bought my first of several CPK knives this year.
    For the rest of 2020, I hope to remain COVID-free (and buy another CPK knife or two :)).

    I almost bought the Necronomicon the same time I picked up this book, and I should've. I've since learned to somewhat better separate the art product of an individual from their ideology. Interestingly, Lovecraft's writing was in part fuelled by his bigotry and the fear that's intrinsic with that.

    Similarly, R. E. Howard was known to have written his Conan stories at all hours, spurred on by a very real sense that Conan himself was standing over his shoulder, ready to disembowel him with a scimitar, impale him with a spear or sever his head with an axe, should he fall asleep while writing, or dawdle. The 'black lotus' featured prominently in many of his stories, and I'm pretty sure that he and his contemporaries, ie; Lovecraft, were frequent users of certain mind altering substances. Pretty sure everyone was on the cocaine those days.
