Happy Birthday Ech-Pi-El

Howard Phillips Lovecraft's 119 birthday today.

The man was a complex collection of contradictions. We are still learning about him and from him. He was a genius and he was a human being with flaws like the rest of us, particularly flaws of his time and place. He created a lasting legacy. His writings and imagination have had influence on me for nearly 30 years.

Thanks Ech-Pi.
