Complete Fiction of HP Lovecraft + Ardbeg or Smokey Penicillin
Howard Phillips Lovecraft (August 20, 1890 – March 15, 1937) was an American writer who achieved posthumous fame through his influential works of horror fiction. He was virtually unknown and published only in pulp magazines before he died in poverty, but he is now regarded as one of the most significant 20th-century authors in his genre. Lovecraft's writing, particularly the so-called Cthulhu Mythos, has influenced fiction authors including modern horror and fantasy writers. Stephen King (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_King), Alan Moore (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Moore), Junji Ito (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Junji_Ito), Neil Gaiman (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neil_Gaiman), etc. have cited Lovecraft as one of their primary influences. Candice recommends focusing on these stories & reading following the order they were written (dates/page count). • Herbert West-Re-Animator 1922/ 15 p. • The Lurking Fear 1922/ 17 p. • Call of Cthulhu 1926/ 25 p. • Pickman's Model 1926/ 11 p. • The Colour out of Space 1927/ 23p. • Dunwich Horror 1928/ 35 p. At The Mountains of Madness 1931/ 84 p. • Shadow Over Innsmouth 1931/52 p. Ardbeg Ardbeg Ten Years Old is revered around the world as the peatiest, smokiest, most complex single malt of them all. Yet it does not flaunt the peat; rather it gives way to the natural sweetness of the malt to produce a whisky of perfect balance. Named World Whisky of the Year in 2008. Smokey Penicillin is Ardbeg + Honey + Ginger Syrup + Fresh Lemon Juice Lovecraft This place is great for LOVECRAFT fans, fans of steampunk, lovers of local art, lovers of live music, and of course lovers of great food and good drinks
