Junk and Lovecraft links

Just culminating some stuff I found...all over.

I can't get enough old time horror lately, and Lovecraft is just damn awesome.

Lovecraft links: The definitive site

and I know you can get the stories from the Gutenberg site in Australia. Algernon Blackwood is good too.

I have been reading all of the old Hellblazer comics from DC too. I'm up to issue 43, right in the middle of the "Dangerous Habits" storyline and Garth Ennis' run on the title. How did I ever miss these gems of fiction, comic or otherwise.

I have been saving all of the FEDERAL MEN episodes from the 1930s and 1940s New Adventure and Adventure Comics that I can get my hands on. This series called the FEDERAL MEN was written and drawn by Jerome Siegel and Joe Shuster, the same two who created Superman. It is really interesting to view what else they did, especially in comparison. I want to start posting them.

And to top it all off, I web-searched for all of the states that my family and I will be driving through this summer, from Seattle to Chicago. I requested all of the free maps. I now have state maps for Washington, Idaho, Montana, Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Illinois. For some reason, South Dakota and Wyoming are not here yet. This is one of the great freebies. Maybe I can institute some kind of "state research" paper next year and have the students send away for information.
