Lovecraft, fantasy literature, and Christ: A conversation with novelist David Pinault

December 9, 2021

In his new novel, "Providence Blue" (https://bit.ly/3aX9LKr), author David Pinault imagines the strange underworld journey of 20th-century fantasy writer Robert E. Howard--creator of Conan the Barbarian and other classic characters--after his suicide in 1936. Taking the reader through Texas flatlands, ancient Egyptian ruins, and New England city gutters, Pinault brings the Cthulhu Mythos of H. P. Lovecraft into contact with the startling reality of Christian doctrine.

Pinault will discuss "Providence Blue," Lovecraft, fantasy literature, and more with Ignatius Press' Mark Brumley.
