Lincoln’s Link of the Day: Kids Love Lovecraft

Children’s scary stories are often based on classic folktales or on pure shock value (see the Scary Stories to tell in the Dark books or my dad’s favorite, The Golden Arm. I still find that terrifying.) Often these don’t require a lot of imagination. And kids have imagination in abundance.

David Milano decided that he would tell abridged version of The Call of Cthulhu, The Shadow Out of Time and At the Mountains of Madness to kids and teens in his friend’s childrens’ choir. Afterward, he had them do art projects of the various iconic creatures in the stories. And they paid off in spades.
