Help write the Necronomicon

The Howard Phillips Lovecraft Historical Society, whose work I dearly love and have written about before, is compiling a complete prop edition of the Necronomicon from reader submissions! There was, apparently, a “Necronomicontest” of some sort to encourage submissions, the deadline of which has now passed, but they are still accepting “mad ramblings” here.

    I submitted some artwork to this contest over 5 years ago and never heard anything back. I don’t think it’s going to happen :-/

    Perhaps it is for the best. A good Necronomicon should probably be the work of a single author or a small team for it to have any consistency and be any good.

    Awesome… so, when is the “prop” due to be released..?
