Okay okay so most of the day was crappy but it instantly got better when I got in the car to go home. My mom brought a letter I received!
This tell-tale stationary can only mean one thing: a letter from the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society!
I honestly had no idea what it was. I didn’t think I qualified for a new stamp or anything.
(HPLHS sends its members stamps for being awesome, or for buying things, or for donating, or writing letters etc)
Now, when I first joined the HPLHS, there was one stamp I super-wanted.
The Nyarlathotep Stamp, awarded to awesome fans on the internet.
What can I say? I might have been thoroughly Dunwiched, but Nyarlathotep is still my fave Mythos god (sorry Yog and Shub).
So, uh, well… I opened up the letter and–
LOOK AT ITS MAJESTY!
Apparently they really liked the fake library book (that I made using props on their site GO CHECK IT OUT) that I posted on the Facebook members group so
I HAVE THE NYARLA STAMP YEE-HAW!
and then I got home and
MY BOOK ARRIVED! This is such a great collection for
a giant fucking nerd someone who enjoys The Dunwich Horror because it contains the original story, the stories that inspired it (”The Great God Pan” and “The White People”), the Lovecraft story itself, and potential sequels written by lovely scholars like Robert M. Price.
So GOOD DAY FOR FANGIRLING
