We went to see a play based on the works of Lovecraft, which got me to thinking about Lovecraftian Cosmic Horror as a means of understanding climate change. About which more later, but for now I wanted to share a quote of myself, in conversation after the show, talking about his writing style with my typical clarity and grace:
Everything’s always so squamous and gibbering. The fucking alleyways are squamous and gibbering. But then once the monster shows up it’s all “oh I cannot begin to describe the terrible thing.” Fuck you, Howard, use an adjective where it matters for once.
