Lovecraft has one again become bedside reading for me. I found this quote the other night in “The Shadow Out of Time” and thought I’d share:
Had something been groping blindly through time from some unsuspected abyss in Nature?
I love it.

Nice to see this isn’t uncommon — I have been reading Lovecraft at night for the past two years, and I am again and again struck by how various elements of Kant, Schopenhauer, Lacan, et al, seem embedded in his hypnotic prose.
I have been following this blog and several others in the whole SR trend, but just wanted to comment on your Lovecraft post. His is truly the philosopher’s horror.
Lovecraft is truly philosopher’s horror. I’ve recently read some Lovecraftian inspired writers (Robert Bloch, Clark Ashton Smith) who echo his style. But there’s no beating the original.
I like this passage from his short story, “The Tomb”. Ontological hand wringing, that.
