Again Lovecraft Festival has attained more and more attention, become more widely known and recognized as we do year after year. Thank you to all who contributed, and please forgive me if I missed a name.

I broke my own Fest taboo and am already chewing on ideas for next year… as there are some concepts and new things I want to review with our core planning team to see what they think… It will be something a bit different in some ways, and familiar perhaps in others… but all in all fresh and interesting – or it won’t be attempted ;-) . Either way, onward, forward, and looking to another, and still better, year ahead!

Last but not least a huge thank to Arik, the tireless master brain and chief fish of the Lovecraft Festivals of Second Life for yet another Lovecraft Birthday celebration in Second Life!

Mysteries Of The Deep – The Very Last Day In Kingsport

Runa, The Wild Elf

Dear Real Life!

You shine bright in a lot of highly valued aspects, but one can certainly say that you have zero skill points in “good timing”. Thanks to that I can not say to have seen much of the Lovecraft Festival during the Festival.

I can tell though that if it was full in the past years, it was even more full this year!

Not only were there more visitors , but also more merchants present and an event schedule that can only be described by : packed to the brim!!
By all means, we even have a Movie Theater this year!

All this made possible by a wonderful staff that puts up with the task to make LoveFest every year even better than the past year. I am happy to have been able to work with such fantastic , skilled, amazing dedicated people. And I am certainly looking…

You Can’t Be in Here!

Fitzhugh Nicely

“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.” –  H.P. Lovecraft

YoucantbeinhereLovefest 2017 is upon us.  After months and weeks of non-stop planning, budgeting,  preparing and crafting, the Society of Innsmouth has finally opened the event for those fans, spooks and things on the fringes brave enough to walk the foggy cobblestone streets that Lovecraft himself would have admired.  From August 17-27, the village will buzz with birthday celebrations, concerts and performances.  And you can take pieces of it with you – a plethora of stores and gacha machines just ooze with darkness and gloom – the hallmarks of Lovecraft’s hauntingly macabre stories.  Oh, and tentacles…more than you can count!

In today’s post, I walk the thin line between a world-renown respected scientist and a psychotic creep who just happens to enjoy spending time with “specimens”…
