Unique Illustration of Lovecraft Connected to Stephen King

At the artist's site (click here: ROBERTO PARADA):

Lovecraft's Pillow —April, 2005This was commissioned by Carol Kaufman at the LA Times (Sunday Book Review Section). It was a critique of a book about the horror genre originator, H P Lovecraft. And written by the contemporary horror great Stephen King. In his praise of the book, he recalled a story of passing by a thrift shop in Lovecraft's native Rhode Island and imagined, while looking at the display window, seeing Lovecraft's own bed pillow. King wrote of it being his greatest idea that never materialized because of his admiration for the memory of H P Lovecraft.
