In his introduction to the story “The Call of Cthulhu,” Lovecraft wrote: “We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.”
Was he right? A panel of scientists and Lovecraft experts discussed the science behind four of Lovecraft’s stories. Panelists: Cody Goodfellow (“Deepest, Darkest Eden: New Tales Of Hyperborea”), Shane Haggard (chemistry instructor, San Diego City College), Leslie S. Klinger (“The New Annotated H. P. Lovecraft”), Andrew Leman (The H. P. Lovecraft Historical Society), and Lisa Will, Ph.D. (astronomy and physics professor, San Diego City College). Moderated by Aaron Vanek (The H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival and CthulhuCon-Los Angeles)
