Lovecraft's Legacy: 2004

Chrispy was perusing books at the local Borders and spied Haunted Places in America: A Guide to Spooked and Spooky Public Places in the United States by Charles A. Coulombe, Lyons Press, 2004.

On page 187, in discussing haunted areas of Rhode Island, here is what it said, "Providence produced one of the greatest American Horror writers Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937), Steeped in his state's and New England's weird legends, he married them to his own imagination and created a world of fright still compelling today ... in Providence's Swan Point cemetery every Halloween his fans gather at his grave to commemorate his life."
