Favourite Hpl

Derb: I’m astonished. It’s not “The Color Out of Space.” It’s “The Colour Out of Space.” Lovecraft never in his life set foot in England, but he was such an antiquarian that he often used English spellings. My favourite HPL story is “The Call of Cthulhu,” though you and Rick have picked good ones, too. I remember seeing a t-shirt once that said “Cthulhu for President: Why settle for the lesser evil?”
