Lovecraft Legend

Swan Point cemetery has the grave of HPL, among other luminaries. "Lovecraft fans gather at his grave each year on or around the anniversary of his death - March 15 - to commemorate his work. Attendees say that Lovecraft himself often appears in teh form "something strange" at these gatherings. One year it was a cackle of crows loudly accompanying the spoken tributes, while another year it was an unexpected snow squall."

Are they any "ghost" stories regarding Lovecraft? It would be interesting if someone had said they saw him hanging around Angell St.

I continue to watch for ghost stories of HPL. There is one of him at Ladd Observatory (see a previous blog post).
