As a writer of horror, H.P. Lovecraft had a style of his own, coming up with a mythos that relied not on gore or similar ways to shock readers, but on utterly alien things Man was not meant to know. In honor of his birthday, for the sixth year in a row his fans in Second Life had their Lovecraft festival. The events took place over ten days, the last one being Sunday August 27. But the sims are still up (as of the writing of this article) for anyone wanting to check the shops or the sights. Bixyl Shuftan and Deaflegacy checked out different parts of the festival grounds.
