Happy 111th Birthday to the Olde Gentleman Howard Phillips Lovecraft, purveyor of weird tales of unspeakable horror and eldritch star-spawn. 

Celebrate the "successor to Poe" by attending the HPL Birthday Party series of events. On Saturday August 18th we'll be showing a number of independent Lovecraft film adaptations at the Blinding Light!!! Cinema, followed by a performance by the premier Lovecraft-inspired rock band, Vancouver's own The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, at the Cobalt. On Sunday August 19th, break out your dice for an all-day role-playing game convention at the Polish Combatants Hall 1134 Kingsway, with a focus on Lovecraft-oriented games like Call of Cthulhu, Mythos, Spaceship Zero, and even the staple Dungeons & Dragons
