A Lovecraftian tale of frontiers and madness.
I first discovered H. P. Lovecraft through Alien. My favorite part of that film is the beginning, when they find that ship and don’t know where it came from. I loved the sense of mystery in the opening.
I started to read the short story Dagon, which would become the main influence on An Eldritch Place. I always wanted to adapt that novel into something and actually, when I was younger, I tried to make a series of comics, but I had to scrap that and never pursued that career. Anyway, after reading Dagon I became obsessed with Lovecraft and read everything of his. After that I noticed his strong influence on everything I had read from Stephen King and several other authors as well.
What I really liked about his stories is the sense of vertigo you get when reading because at some point it forces you to think about the cosmos. It’s deep and sort of terrifying but not because of monsters but because we realize how insignificant we are in the whole universe…
