Lovecraftian Proceedings is the Official Organ of the Dr. Henry Armitage Memorial Symposium.

 

A key part of NecronomiCon Providence, the Armitage Symposium fosters exploration of Lovecraft as a rationalist who created an elaborate cosmic mythology, and how this mythology was influenced by, and has come to influence, numerous other authors and artists.
