Lovecraftian Proceedings
No. 2

Edited by Dennis P. Quinn

Back Cover Text

Lovecraftian Proceedings is the Official Organ of the Dr. Henry Armitage Memorial Symposium. Established in 2013 as a key part of NecronomiCon Providence, the Armitage Symposium fosters exploration of Lovecraft as a rationalist who created an elaborate cosmic mythology, and how this mythology was influenced by, and has come to influence, numerous other authors and artists.
