Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

Celebrating H.P. Lovecraft
This year, I did not forget it: today is H.P. Lovecraft's birthday. The master of cosmic horror and the writer responsible of some of the scariest reading experiences I've had. I discovered him mainly through the role-playing game Call of Cthulhu, inspired from his work. As we are getting closer and closer to Halloween, I suggest you read some of his short stories today to get yourself in the mood for the season and also to celebrate one of the greatest and most influential contributors to modern horror. And I put here the Great Old One, Chtulhu himself, to commemorate his creator's birthday. Even after being parodied and becoming a pop culture reference, his original self is still terrifying.
