    well, this is interesting

    Amok Time Announces 'Re-Animator' and 'Bride of Re-Animator' Action Figures!!
    Retailer and toy developer Amok Time surprised New York Comic-Con attendees with the announcement that they have acquired the license for Stuart Gordon’s classic Re-Animator, reports Figures.

    The license includes both the original 1985 film, as well as the 1990 sequel, Bride of Re-Animator!

    Amok Time will be producing three (3) action figures of “Herbert West” as part of their Monstarz collection. These are being sculpted by talented artist Jean St. Jean and are all scheduled for release in the Fall of 2014.

    Amok Time wouldn’t give specifics on each figure aside that Herbert in the poster above is an obvious choice as one figure. Each figure will include accessories and other cool pack-ins (such as the wild flying bat head from Bride).

    Amok Time will be showing at next year’s Toy Fair in February and should have some prototypes to show by then.

    I heard a rumor that "Pacific Rim" was originally a "Lovecraft Cthulu" film but was slanted to the "Japan" angle for marketing purposes. After seeing the film, I could definitely see that.

    i think Pacific Rim was sort of born out of the frustration of not being able to do At The Mountains of Madness before Ridley Scott released Prometheus

    LOL You may have a point, but this was an "official" internet rumor. Anyone else heard likewise?

    From across strange aeons comes the long-awaited annotated edition of “the twentieth century’s greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale” (Stephen King).

    “With an increasing distance from the twentieth century . . . the New England poet, author, essayist, and stunningly profuse epistolary Howard Phillips Lovecraft is beginning to emerge as one of that tumultuous period’s most critically fascinating and yet enigmatic figures,” writes Alan Moore. But at the time of his death, Lovecraft was maligned by critics and ignored by the public. Now, Leslie S. Klinger reanimates Lovecraft as never before, charting the rise of the pulp writer, whose rediscovery is almost unprecedented in American literary history. Following a trajectory not unlike Melville or Poe, Lovecraft’s vast body of work—a mythos in which humanity is a blissfully unaware speck in a cosmos shared by ancient alien beings—is increasingly being recognized as the foundation for American horror and science fiction.

    With nearly 300 illustrations and more than 1,000 annotations, Klinger illuminates every hidden dimension of 22 of Lovecraft’s most canonical works.

    280 color illustrations

    • Edited by S. T. Joshi
    • Draft cover artwork shown for illustration only
    • Final cover artwork forthcoming
    • ISBN 978-1-61498-108-4
    • 1600 pages (three volumes)
    • Individual volumes not sold separately
    • Limited edition: 500 sets only
    • November 2014

    In the 1980s, S. T. Joshi prepared revised editions of H. P. Lovecraft’s stories for Arkham House. Basing his work on consultation of manuscripts, early publications, and other sources, Joshi corrected thousands of errors in the existing texts of Lovecraft’s fiction, allowing readers to appreciate the stories as Lovecraft originally wrote them.

    In the thirty years that have followed, Joshi has continued to do research on the textual accuracy of Lovecraft’s stories, and this comprehensive new edition is the result. For the first time, students and scholars of Lovecraft can see at a glance all the textual variants in all relevant appearances of a story—manuscript, first publication in magazines, and first book publications. The result is an illuminating record of the textual history of the tales, along with how Lovecraft significantly revised his stories after initial publication.

    Along the way, Joshi has made small but significant revisions to his earlier corrected texts. He has determined, for example, that Lovecraft slightly revised some stories when a reprint of them was scheduled in Weird Tales, and he has altered some readings in light of a better understanding of Lovecraft’s customary linguistic usages.

    The result is the definitive text of Lovecraft’s fiction—an edition that supersedes all those that preceded it and should endure as the standard text of Lovecraft’s stories for many years.

    [Volume 1:]

    In this first volume, Lovecraft’s earliest stories are printed in chronological order by date of writing. Included are such early triumphs as “Dagon” and “The Outsider,” along with the many tales Lovecraft wrote under the inspiration of Lord Dunsany. The celebrated “Herbert West—Reanimator” and “The Rats in the Walls” show Lovecraft experimenting with longer narratives—a tendency that will culminate in the novelettes and novellas of his final decade of writing.

    [Volume 2:]

    In this second volume, the tales that Lovecraft wrote immediately after returning to his native Providence, R.I., from two years of “exile” in New York are presented. The landmark tale “The Call of Cthulhu” was only the tip of the iceberg of a flood of stories he wrote in 1926–27, which include the two short novels The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath and The Case of Charles Dexter Ward. “The Colour out of Space” is a pioneering tale that initiates Lovecraft’s distinctive melding of horror and science fiction, while “The Dunwich Horror” and “The Whisperer in Darkness” are rich novellas simultaneously evoking terrors from outer space and the brooding darkness of the New England backwoods.

    [Volume 3:]

    In this final volume, the tales of Lovecraft’s final years are presented. The Antarctic novella At the Mountains of Madness is perhaps Lovecraft’s most finished work, a superb fusion of weirdness and science fiction that he referred to as “cosmicism.” “The Shadow over Innsmouth” is a chilling evocation of the terrors inherent in a lonely New England backwater, while “The Thing on the Doorstep” and “The Haunter of the Dark” feature physical horrors with cosmic implications. “The Shadow out of Time” is the culmination of Lovecraft’s portrayal of the vast vistas of space and time—his signature contribution to literature.

    S. T. Joshi is a leading Lovecraft scholar and author of H. P. Lovecraft: The Decline of the West (1990), I Am Providence: The Life and Times of H. P. Lovecraft (2010), Lovecraft and an Age in Transition (2014), and other critical and biographical works. He has also done significant research on such writers as Lord Dunsany, Ambrose Bierce, Arthur Machen, and Ramsey Campbell.

    H. P. LOVECRAFT'S COLLECTED FICTION: A VARIORUM EDITION will be published in celebration of the 125th anniversary of H. P. Lovecraft's birth.

    Editor S. T. Joshi presents all the relevant textual variants from all the stories that Lovecraft wrote over his short literary career.

    The first three volumes, available in November 2014 exclusively as a set, collect all of Lovecraft's canonical tales. A fourth volume, H. P. Lovecraft's Revisions and Collaborations: A Variorum Edition, is scheduled to appear in 2015 and will be offered for sale individually.

    H. P. LOVECRAFT'S COLLECTED FICTION: A VARIORUM EDITION features Smythe-sewn signatures and illustrated dust wrappers, with each copy individually shrink-wrapped. All Hippocampus Press limited editions are printed on 60# white offset paper, acid free and elemental chlorine free.

    Yep. A lot of people turn a blind eye to that shit and call him "a product of the times" or whatnot. He seemed like an intriguing character but after reading some excerpts from The Conservative (his newsletter/zine), that man was FUCKED. His thoughts were eloquent and well thought out; no way were these just random ramblings.

    To the anonymous shit-talker who left a condescending "reputation" comment: you will never convince me racism of the HPL variety was the norm. Never ever ever. Unless you're suggesting that every person in the USA in the '30s was racist. Because that is what your comment means.

    Here it is:

    Thread: Ia Ia Cthulhu Fthagn!...

    100 years ago it "was the norm" and a "product of the times". Segregation did not repeal until the '60's. Think before you post.

    This definitive three-volume compilation of Lovecraft's complete fiction—a fourth volume featuring his collaborations and stories that he ghost wrote for other writers is due out later in 2015—is an HPL enthusiast's dream: a record of all textual variants in important publications for each of the horror titan's tales. The culmination of the 20 years of research that Lovecraft scholar Joshi put into correcting thousands of errors and editorial alterations to the stories in the standard editions of Lovecraft's works, the texts in this edition differ slightly from the corrected texts published by Arkham House between 1984 and 1986 owing to Joshi's reconsideration of some of Lovecraft's stylistic tics—among them Lovecraft's preferred, though inconsistent, use of British spellings, and his presumed acceptance in his later works of style changes imposed by the magazines in which they originally appeared. Where possible, Joshi consulted autograph manuscripts, typescripts, and even personally annotated copies of magazines in which Lovecraft restored phrasing changed by the editors. The stories are organized chronologically in order of their composition, and each features an editor's note detailing its publishing history and the copy text used to compare against other editions of the work. The contents of Volume I span the years 1905 to 1925 and feature 45 tales. The vast majority of corrections are virtually subclinical, at the level of punctuation and word choices, although Joshi identifies revisions to a handful of works that first appeared in the amateur press before Lovecraft submitted them for professional publication, as well as changes that he made to two of his better-known early tales—"Dagon" and "The Rats in the Walls"—between their first publication in Weird Tales (the pulp magazine that was the biggest market for his fiction) and their reprints in later issues of the magazine. The 13 stories in Volume II, published between 1926 and 1930, include several major works, among them "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward" and "The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath," neither of which was published in Lovecraft's lifetime and whose hundreds of corrections show the difficulties Lovecraft's publishers faced transcribing the crabbed handwriting of his original manuscripts. One of the volume's highlights is the reprinting of an entire paragraph that Lovecraft excised from the climactic finale of his monster masterpiece, "Pickman's Model." Volume III, which covers the years 1931 through 1937, features nine of Lovecraft's greatest stories, as well as several incidental pieces and juvenile works. Its centerpieces are the cosmic horror classic "The Shadow out of Time," whose autograph manuscript surfaced after Joshi's speculative correction of its heavily edited text in 1986, and "At the Mountains of Madness," the most problematic work in the Lovecraft canon since it is not clear which deviations from Lovecraft's autograph manuscript are attributable to him or to his editors. Although the overwhelming majority of textual variants that Joshi identifies will be of interest primarily to Lovecraft scholars rather than to casual readers, anyone who appreciates the care with which Lovecraft chose words and applied his unique style to create his unique works of modern horror will find this excursion into the minutiae of his craft both fascinating and rewarding.

    If there are any hardcore Lovecraft completist here, I was recently in a bookshop in Bath, ME where the owner showed me a copy of a book called Turners Chemistry. It was a scholarly text from about 1840, but what made it interesting was the "ownership" hand written in the front was for H. P. himself, complete with his address in Baltimore. You could also see where he had written his initials in pencil.

    The owner states that it has been verified by Brown University, who would not pay the asking price but asked for it to be donated. He is asking $1500.

    I have no interest at all, but if anyone does, let me know and I can get the store info to you.

    I am currently reading HPL's entire fiction output from first to last, including collaborations.

    Next up is The Colour Out of Space.

    Whilst there have been a few average stories on the journey so far, I've really enjoyed nearly everything I've read and you can definitely see a change in his story-telling following his years in New York.

    Another complete works edition but this one is grouped by theme and isn't necessarily chronological.
