There are a lot of folks besides us out there creating interesting new stuff for the Lovecraft community, and we thought it might be fun and useful to have an official HPLHS Reviews page. We have a team of volunteer reviewers who will take a look at the new books, movies, games, music, and more which come our way. If you’ve got something you think would be appropriate for an HPLHS Review, please click on this e-mail link and we’ll take a look at it.

“The Call of Cthulhu” For Beginning Readers

Chaosium, Inc., the publishers of the celebrated role playing game, Call of Cthulhu, bring us a delightful mash-up of Lovecraft and Dr. Seuss. From the get go, the book does a marvelous job with creating the illusion of a genuine Dr. Seuss book. The size, color, typography and cover illustration all....

The Night Ocean

What an infuriating book. And a lovely one. What a frustrating, ugly, poignant, fantastic, wildly crazy, nutso bag-of-shit fantasy and wonderful piece of writing this is. For any Lovecraft aficionado this will almost certainly be an exhilarating, exasperating and practically psychotic ride into the minds and worlds of Lovecraft and others....

IÄÄ! Cthulhu! Fhtagn!

A fun, quick, quality Lovecraftian dice game. The English translation of the rules, however, is not entirely clear, and an online video tutorial would be very helpful...

String Quartet No. 1: The Music of Erich Zann

A beautiful, eerie composition played by a very talented group of musicians. This is a serious Western Art Music adaptation of one of Lovecraft's works. If you know chamber music you will love this piece.

Lovecraft Illustrated, Volumes 11 & 12

I love these books almost as much as I love the stories in them. My first impression of the entire product was if I was wanting to present a book of Lovecraft’s tales to someone new to his work, especially if they are younger, these are the volumes I would give them. However, they are perfectly worthy of any HPL fan’s attention....

Necronomicards

Necronomicards

Necronomicards is a light and rapid card game of battling powers that is a pleasant diversion and does not dive too deep. A good time killer for 2 to 4 players which can take 30 to 45 minutes. The production value of the box and card set is very good and the instructions are concise and clearly written. The artwork by Andy Hunt is worthy of the quality of the game....
