“I am a writer of tales of the uncanny”


Fake H. P. Lovecraft 1933 WPA Newsreel Interview via William Gibson

Today, William Gibson reported on the above footage. In a second post, Gibson admits having been fooled. As he writes in a second post:  “I guess I so wanted to believe that that was Lovecraft that I managed to ignore the actor’s complete lack of HPLoid bone-structure. (Lovecraft was one distinctively-jawed New Englander.)

Faking elder footage on YouTube, though, has great potential as a form.”
