Elder gods be praised! The legendary H.P. Lovecraft is going to be honored with a stellar bronze bust in Providence, Rhode Island, in just a few short months. This delights us to no end. Read on for all of the details!

From the Press Release

This August, 73 years after his death, famed American horror-fantasy author Howard Phillips Lovecraft (At the Mountains of Madness, The Call of Cthulhu) will finally receive a public monument in celebration of his enormous literary legacy in his hometown of Providence, Rhode Island. The historic Providence Athenaeum Library, founded in 1753, has agreed to accept into its permanent collection a life-size bronze effigy that will be created by sculptor Bryan Moore of Arkham Studios.

Exclusive Graveyard of Empires Q&A with Mark Sable and Paul Azaceta

1 May 2013 3:31 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Today saw the release of the Graveyard of Empires trade paperback, collecting the popular zombie mini-series from Mark Sable and Paul Azaceta. We recently had a chance to talk with the two of them, and learned about the research that went into the story, the reaction the book received from the military community, and the possibility of a Graveyard of Empires movie:

About Graveyard of Empires: “Afghanistan. U.S. Marines face a never-ending onslaught of Taliban. But even hell can get worse. The dead are coming back to life in The Graveyard of Empires, and only together can both sides of the today’s conflict survive tomorrow’s undead assault. Writer Mark Sable (Unthinkable, Two-Face Year One) reunites with his Grounded co-creator, Paul Azaceta (Amazing Spider-Man) to tell this critically claimed, controversial tale of terror. Featuring an all-new story created by Paul Azaceta in his comics writing debut!”

Six Movies with Books as Horrifying as 'Evil Dead''s Necronomicon

5 April 2013 6:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Outside of Cthulhu, the Necronomicon might be the most infamous creation of horror author H.P. Lovecraft’s career. The book, allegedly written by mad Arab Abdul Alhazred, first turns up in the author’s 1924 short story The Hound – and from there, it’s become arguably the most infamous title in the history of the dark arts.
