ince the Dawn of Time humankind has expressed itself through the arts - from the earliest cave paintings through to blockbuster movies. Dance, sculpture, music and theatre have informed religious ritual, cultural expression and entertainment throughout history. HP Lovecraft and others developed the traditional literary ghost tale into a new format - Cosmic Horror. Since his writings, this new Mythos has been developed and expanded by numerous authors.
Here, members of the Innsmouth Writing Circle bring you new tales of the weird and the Lovecraftian, all based on the theme of the Arts.
