Now Bookcasting Old Bugs by H.P. Lovecraft


Old Bugs is one of the few comedic stories written bv H.P. Lovecraft-- as least it is about as close to comedy as that master of horror ever came. Old Bugs was probably written shortly before July 1919. The piece was written after Lovecraft's friend Alfred Galpin's suggested that he wanted to try alcohol before Prohibition went into effect. In response, Lovecraft,a teetotaler, wrote a tale of an old derelict known as Old Bugs, who turns out to be Galpin himself, brought low by "evil habits, dating from a first drink taken years before in woodland seclusion." It's actually quite amusing.
