Fantastic Connections

Stories explore the human condition in ways that help us think. Allegories analyze us and society. How does this work? Why are we so connected with fantastical people/places/stories? Can escaping into speculative fiction help us heal in the real world?

Lovecraftian Reinterpretations

The conceit is that HP Lovecraft’s mythos explains every story. For instance, is the shapeshifter in The Thing a shoggoth? Are Tolkien’s Ringwraiths really Night-Gaunts? Don't forget the implications of Star Trek’s “Catspaw” and its “Old Ones”!
