H.P. Lovecraft and blueberry pie

Pie is my favourite dessert, and blueberry (for summer) and mince (for winter) are my preferred kinds—with apple as a good all-year-round third. Like to take vanilla ice cream with apple and blueberry pie.” (to Robert E. Howard, 7 November 1932)

My brother PJ gave me this quote (and the picture of the blueberry pie, which he made recently). I have no true reason to quote H.P. Lovecraft, except that we are in the heart of blueberry season. Blueberry being the fruit of my region, I feel some kind of pride knowing the horror writer loved blueberry pie. I used to play Call of Cthulhu around this time of year (more about it here), and I think it could be fitting to play a game today, munching this blueberry pie at the same time.I mentioned it on this post, it is little details like these that make a game more enjoyable and atmospheric.

i was so happy to be able to quote hp to my son and not have him know this quote because, he knows every other word that lovecraft has written.

C'est pas avec des vrais bleuets, mais parlant de Lovecraft et de tarte... J'ai pas le talent pour faire ça malheureusement.

@Jaz-I am so glad I could be of some assistance. Does your son play Call of Cthulhu? If he does, you could make a blueberry pie when he does.
PJ-Oh le second degré!
