"Lovecraft is a disease that I want to share." -WHP

The internet is abuzz with the excited chatter of fans gearing up for the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival in October. None of these are more colorful than author Wilum Hopfrog Pugmire, whom we recently had the pleasure of corresponding with.

Mr. Pugmire has recently turned his creative output towards a prolific Youtube channel in which he analyzes popular culture and seeks to help promote the upcoming HPL Film Festival. We asked him a few questions about his life, his work, and the festival. He was generous enough to respond to us with a multi-segmented video interview.

For three decades, Mr. Pugmire's Lovecraftian fiction and poetry has appeared in numerous horror anthologies and in Weird Tales Magazine. He has also published collections of his work in volumes such as Sesqua Valley and Other Haunts and The Fungal Stain and Other Dreams.

For those unfamiliar with Mr. Pugmire's vivid persona, the interview may initially come as somewhat of a shock, but this, we think, makes it all the more appealing, and we are thrilled for his candidness.

Sit back and enjoy a wholly unique interview from a Lovecraft veteran.
