FYI: Lovecraft was a fucking racist

And by that I mean a real racist as fucked up as it gets not the (also disgusting) „As everybody back then he didn’t like people of color“ but the stinking, disgusting, completly deluded kind of racist.

Next time I’ll be home, I’ll throw the two Lovecraft books I own into the bin. I’m not going to resell them, I’m going to make sure no one ever reads that kind of crap.

Oh and before I forget: Robert „Conan“ E. Howard was also a mindless sexist, racist scumbag (via).

I can’t believe that they’re both featured in this Penguin Classics-series, the latter without ever touching his crazed views on woman and race in the preface. Not a single word!
