H. P. Lovecraft roundup

H.P. Lovecraft

The World Fantasy Award will no longer be in the likeness of H.P. Lovecraft. 

My "social justice warrior" credentials can sometimes be shaky,  but I'm fine with this. An award doesn't have to reflect a particular cult of personality, and it makes sense to make everyone at the World Fantasy Convention feel welcome. I doubt if Lovecraft's legacy will suffer.

Also, Arthur Hlavaty finds a surprising quotation.
