One of my favorite pieces of incoming mail ever is this Cthulhugram I received from the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society. Cthulhu, He Who Sleeps Beneathe the Waves, is sure to be at the forefront of everyone's cerebral cortex or in the dark recesses of their soul this All Hallow's holiday. The H.P.L.H.S. offers a free download of this self-mailing telegram with instructions on folding and a fancy seal to boot. What better way to spread the coming insanity and horror of the Old Ones, right? Their site is chock'o'block full of downloadable goodies, many of a postal persuasion. For example, these Providence postcards are swell.
Letters and Lovecraft go together quite well. Why, there's even an RPG based around the very same. It's called De Profundis and is described as an "epistolary psychodrama." Quite the Halloween party game should you want to practice your gibbering maddness. Thanks to Andrew for the telegram and Michael for the tip about the game!
P.S. Halloween is on the way and expect a fair number of ooky-spooky blog posts from me. You have been warned.
