Not Dead but Dreaming

I seem to have been inexplicably On Hiatus for a while. Sorry about that. Your regularly-scheduled1 broadcasts will resume shortly.

In the meantime – and in keeping with the reference invoked by this post’s title, here at the outset of the Season of Mists – go have a read of this brace of posts by Professor Geoffrey K. Pullum on Lingua Franca on the subject of H.P. Lovecraft’s old (excuse me) haunts, and the troubling aspects of the Gentleman of Providence we latter-day fans are obliged to have a hard look at.

(And on that second theme, for my beloved and eloquent cousin, who recently reminded me of it: How to be a fan of problematic things.)

Ta for now. Back soon.
