The Weird Company. The Secret History of H. P. Lovecraft’s Twentieth Century, by Pete Rawlik, Night Shade Books, 2014. Cover art by David Hueso, info: nightshadebooks.com.
"Shoggoths attack in this adrenaline-pumping novel set in the world of H. P. Lovecraft, where the horrors of the cosmos know no limits… It was in a way humanoid, as it stood on two legs and possessed two arms that ended in delicate digits that I would dare to call hands. Its skin was a pale blue, like the eggs of a robin, and curiously dry looking. The head was massive with a huge bulbous cranium, a large lipless mouth, and three blood red eyes that stared out at the world with nothing but hate. When it opened its mouth to speak it issued forth the most horrendous of sounds, something empty and hollow, like the wind blowing through a dead tree, and it made me cringe to hear it… The story of Dr. Hartwell (Reanimators) continues, but now he has company. Weird company: a witch, a changeling, a mad scientist, and a poet trapped in the form of a beast. These are not heroes but monsters… monsters to fight monsters. Their adventures rage across the globe, from the mountains and long-forgotten caves of Antarctica to the dimly lit backstreets of Innsmouth that still hold terrifying secrets. The unholy creatures released upon the world via the ill-fated Lake expedition to Antarctica must be stopped. And only the weird company stands in their way. Continuing in the fashion of Reanimators, The Weird Company finds Lovecraft expert Pete Rawlik taking some of the most well-known of H. P. Lovecraft’s creations and creating a true Frankenstein monster of a story—a tale more horrific than anything Lovecraft could have imagined…"

In honor of Banned Books Week, here are the top 10 challenged books of 2013.

This is the second year Dav Pilkey’s Captain Underpants series has topped the list. He tells NPR’s Lynn Neary:

"I don’t consider the books to be anti-authoritarian, but I do think it is important, if you think something is wrong, to question authority — because, you know, there are villains in real life, and they don’t always wear black capes and black hats. Sometimes they’re dressed like authority figures. And kids need to know that it’s important to question them."

Banned Books Week starts today! How many of these banned books have you read?

Or, an history of stupidity in the US.

Across the awesome darkness comes the cold, red kiss of … THE SPACE VAMPIRES!
Couldn’t find artist credit, 1976.  Apparently there’s a TV show based on this in the works, and it was already adapted as a Tobe hooper film, Lifeforce, in 1985.

Here I am talking Sandman Slim on Cripple & Broken TV. Sorry about the hat. My hair was kind of anarchic that day.
