  1. I have to say the more I watch your videos the more I enjoy this series. If I was able to ask Mr. Lovecraft one question I think it would be why his tales of fantasy ( not to mention his poetry) are not given as much respect as those about cosmic horrors. I still hold that ” The quest of Iranon” is one of the most heart wrenching short stories in literature, and his poem ” Nathicana” is surpassed only by Poe’s ” Annabelle Lee” in its beauty. Some of his best works I have always felt were when he combined the two types of stories such as with ” The Hound”, ” The Festival”, ” The rats in the walls”, ” The cats of Ulther”, ” The Elder gods”, and ” The doom That came to Sarnath” to name but a few. Lovecraft has always been my favorite author and his stories of the mythos of the great old ones changed how I view literature forever but at the same time it saddens me that his other works are all but totally disregarded. Tragically I have always found this the same case with Poe ( some of the comedic works he wrote were brilliant, and I think I am correct in saying he wrote much more of these than he did his horror stories).

    Anyhow once again I would like to thank you for your videos, they always bring a smile to my face, please keep up the excellent work!
