A Night With the Elder Gods

Hello again; once more it's been a while but many things are moving forward or changing direction, so current;y I am a little overwhelmed with stuff, while Ergo Proxy has sunk into a bog recently and I cannot get him to blog anything (which is kind of weird, since this was his blog originally and the darn bastard DOES have way interesting ideas...).

At any rate, currently KrizD and I are trying to organize a J-Party for Saturday (read more here and here) and at the same time I have rehearsals with SciCo for our new science theater show, "The Science of Love", a s#!tload of photos to edit and I am also looking into some other projects, in various fields. Meanwhile, COMICDOM CON is coming up (photographic duties, as usual), three days after the science theater premiere and that is only about half of it, if you add all the other little stuff buzzing around me.

However, on the 27th of March I will crawl out of my cave to attend an event dedicated to H.P.Lovecraft, on the occasion of Michel Houellebecq's book, "H.P.Lovecraft: Against the World, Against Life", being translated into Greek. The event promises to be very interesting, as it will feature writer and reciter extraordinaire, Makis Panorios, who will talk about Lovecraft's work and read one of his short stories, Theodore Gregoriades who will talk about Houellebecq's work and Dimitris Vanellis (an old acquaintance from my years in "9" Magazine). The end of the evening will feature a selection of Lovecraft film adaptations, chosen by director and film academic, Dimitris Panayotatos.

The english edition of the book.

Sad to say that this concerns only Greek readers, as the event will be held over here, at the ΕΣΗΕΑ building (Akadimias 20, Athens) and starts at 20:00. However, I will endeavor to report it for those of you reading the blog from abroad.

I encourage all local readers to join me in going to this event, that promises to be a true night of horror and wonder with the Elder Gods.

Fhtagn!
