Captain Spaulding on Skull Island

McMurtry & Lovecraft

August 21st, 2009

What I’m currently reading:

Rhino Ranch

RHINO RANCH by Larry McMurtry

Winner of both a Pulitzer Prize and an Academy Award, I started reading McMurtry in college and still pick up his books every now and then.   This is the 5th book in the Duane Moore saga which started with THE LAST PICTURE SHOW way back in 1966.

Mountains of Madness

AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS  by H. P. Lovecraft

One of Lovecraft’s longer works, a cornerstone of his mythology.  I probably should’ve read this a while ago, since I’ve been using Mythos elements in my own writing for about 10 years, but Lovecraft can be a little hard to get through for me.  I think I’ve read more Lovecraft pastiche than actually Lovecraft.
