You can read the text of the presentation at the link above, or see a video of the presentation if you prefer. Here are some photos of the event:
John and I, after the presentations and Q&A, with our copies of H.P. Lovecraft’s stories. The third book on the desk is Lovecraft: A Look Behind the Cthulhu Mythos by Lin Carter (who also wrote one of the earliest books analyzing The Lord of the Rings). Photo taken by Joe Ricke.
