A Live Video Lecture by Dr. Amy H. Sturgis

What does the world’s only consulting detective have to do with science fiction? What was the relationship of his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, to the genre? Why have so many science fiction authors since Doyle found ways to incorporate Holmes into their works? What is the unique history between Holmes’s world and H.P. Lovecraft’s? In what ways has Holmes been recreated and reimagined via science fiction over the years? What is it about Holmes that makes him so at home – and popular! – in the 21st century?

Join award-winning genre scholar Amy H. Sturgis live as she investigates Sherlock Holmes then and now through a science fictional lens. A live Q&A will follow the lecture.

"The Deathly Tweet" by Dwight L. MacPherson

Author, editor, and comic book/graphic novel creator Dwight L. MacPherson (of The Surreal Adventures of Edgar Allan Poo, Kid Houdini and the Silver-Dollar Misfits, Jim Reaper, and Sidewise, among other works) is a Lovecraft fan. Soon readers will be able to enjoy his adaptation of Lovecraft's "He" in the forthcoming The Lovecraft Anthology: Volume II.

FYI, an exclusive Lovecraftian short story from MacPherson went online yesterday: read "The Deathly Tweet."

For anyone at Live Journal with an interest in H. P. Lovecraft & related matters:

 First there were the CthulhuWho1 photo collections on Flickr!

Then there was the CthulhuWho1 audio and updates blog!

Then there was the CthulhuWho1 YouTube channel for videos!

Check out the first "video" from CthulhuWho1; actually a visual version of "Fungi from Yuggoth," using H. P. Lovecraft's words, his spelling. and even his handwriting, by way of the Lovecraft Cursive font from the H. P. Lovecraft Historical Society at
