Cthulhu Mythos, As Imagined By Kids

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

David Milano ran an art project for a children’s choir in the weeks before Halloween where he put on some Lovecraft-inspired music (by AKLO) and told them abbreviated versions of Lovecraft’s Shadow Out of Time, At the Mountains of Madness, and The Call of Cthulhu. The kids—ages 8-14—drew the monsters.

The results? AWESOME! Check out the galleries at Milano’s website.

The Opus Fantasy Festival…

Monday, February 23rd, 2009

…is a unique fantasy convention in Denver that brings together a colorful spectrum of music, art, performances, and live-action games alongside the usual far-out fun of convention geekery. This year’s event, taking place March 13-15, promises to be a real treat, with a Dark Wizard’s Ball, a show by the Serpent Moon bellydancing troupe, and live steel swordfighting by the warriors of Castle Wall! Then there’s the incredible French artist guest of honor Gil Bruvel, hot paranormal novelists Ilona & Gordon Andrews as literary guests of honor, songwriter and goth-of-all-trades Voltaire as musical guest, author and Weird Tales contributor Sarah Hoyt serving as toastmaster, and more!

Weird Tales is proud to be joining the festivities as Opus’s special magazine guest, and we encourage fans who can make the festival to come on out — there will be weird fun, prizes and freebies aplenty!
