For those interested in the writer of weird fiction H.P. Lovecraft, I’ve started a new occasional weblog. There you’ll find 250+ freshly gathered and categorised links, which serve as a comprehensive snapshot of ‘Lovecraft on the Web‘ in 2010. Many of these resources are surprisingly hard to track down and are not well interlinked, so it took me quite a while to bring it all together. Those interested in preserving the history of fandom may want to set a web spider to harvest an archive of all the sites.
A new issue of my ‘overlay’ journal Journal of the Imaginary and Fantastic — this one is on the history of Lovecraftian scholarship and fandom.
Added the open books catalog of the University of Michigan Press DigitalCultureBooks catalog to JURN. Sadly the actual full-text contents of the books are stored on a distinctly Google-unfriendly repository, and so can’t be indexed.
“the kind of work done by digital humanists [ i.e.: in the digital humanities ], no matter how useful, interesting, and important, often just can’t be made to fit the traditional definitions of scholarship that are used to determine eligibility for academic career advancement”
New on Google Scholar, search within all the papers that cite the one you’re interested in.
The Rice University Press catalog is now indexed by JURN. All Rice books are now open access.
