Brendan explores the question of what he thinks about colonialism as represented in games and games built on the H.P. Lovecraft mythos. How does H.P. Lovecraft’s history of racist views and racist allegory in his work shape the Lovecraftian stories now? Why treat these differently than Colonialist stories?
- Rahdo’s comments (I think) that inspired this discussion.
- Lindsay Ellis on Death of the Author and on J.K. Rowling
- Arkham Horror LCG
- On Orson Scott Card
- On H. P. Lovecraft (by someone who probably wouldn’t want to play any Lovecraftian games)
- Late Victorian Holocausts
