Ibid (Review)



"Ibid" is a parody by American horror fiction writer H. P. Lovecraft, written in 1927 or 1928 and first published in the January 1938 issue of O-Wash-Ta-Nong "Ibid" is a mock biography of the Roman scholar Ibidus (486-587), whose masterpiece was Op. Cit., "wherein all the significant undercurrents of Graeco-Roman thought were crystallized once and for all." The piece traces the skull of Ibidus, once the possession of Charlemagne, William the Conqueror and other notables, to the United States, where it travels via Salem, Massachusetts and Providence, Rhode Island to a prairie dog hole in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The story is prefaced with the epigraph "'...As Ibid says in his famous Lives of the Poets.'--From a student theme". But S. T. Joshi and David E. Schultz report that the "target of the satire in 'Ibid' is not so much the follies of students as the pomposity of academic scholarship

Septicflesh: Lovecraft's Death (Reaction & Analysis)



After listening to the song I give a breakdown of all the HP Lovecraft references and my opinion of the music. Communion is the seventh studio album by Greek death metal band Septicflesh. It was released on March 17, 2008 worldwide, and March 25, 2008 in the United States, both dates through the French label Season of Mist. Lyrics The cold comes The rats in the walls break The deadly sound of silence As time decays You try to name the unnamable A whispererer in darkness Our hound smells you The haunter of the dark Will come to take you to our realm Your life, your books March in front your closing eyes Beyond the walls of sleep Lovecraft in the realm of the dead Obsessed with Necronomicon The Arab's wicked dream You found a path to Azathoth And walked the Dagon's realm Your friends were haunted too Do you remember Charles? Or haven't you heard The music of Erich Zann The call of Cthulhu we disguised With notes and raving rhythms To spread the seed of lurking fear Into the heart of man Lovecraft in the realm of the dead Your time is out you saw too much You used the silver key You know too well that minds like yours Can never rest in peace You stared at the abyss You'll never rest in peace You'll never rest in peace

The Case of Charles Dexter Ward (Review)



The Case of Charles Dexter Ward (Review) The Case of Charles Dexter Ward is a short horror novel (51,500 words) by American writer H. P. Lovecraft, written in early 1927, but not published during the author's lifetime. Set in Lovecraft's hometown of Providence, Rhode Island, it was first published (in abridged form) in the May and July issues of Weird Tales in 1941; the first complete publication was in Arkham House's Beyond the Wall of Sleep collection (1943). It is included in the Library of America volume of Lovecraft's work. The novel, set in 1928, describes how Charles Dexter Ward becomes obsessed with his distant ancestor, Joseph Curwen, an alleged wizard with unsavory habits. Ward physically resembles Curwen, and attempts to duplicate his ancestor's Qabalistic and alchemical feats. He eventually uses this knowledge to physically resurrect Curwen. Ward's doctor, Marinus Bicknell Willett, investigates Ward's activities and is horrified by what he finds.
