Daniel Harms was in studio with us on this night to talk about the work of H.P. Lovecraft and his influence on our society and culture, as well as the truth behind the man and his work.
Daniel is a writer and librarian living in upstate New York. He is best known for the books The Encyclopedia Cthulhiana: A Guide to Lovecraftian Horror (which won an Origins Special Achievement Award), The Cthulhu Mythos Encyclopedia, The Necronomicon Files (co-authored with John Wisdom Gonce III), and The Long-Lost Friend: A 19th Century American Grimoire. His work has appeared in publications such as The Journal for the Academic Study of Magic, Abraxas, Fortean Times, Paranoia, and The Unspeakable Oath. He is the originator of The Shadow Over Usenet, a detailed online discussion of the works of H. P. Lovecraft. He is a lecturer on Lovecraft Circle literature and occult films and history, and his blog Papers Falling from an Attic Window provides commentary on these and other topics.
