Team LovecraftAthon

Would you like to read the works of H.P. Lovecraft and raise money for charity? Well now is your chance.

The members of the FantasyBookClub.org & ScienceFictionBookClub.org will be reading all of The Collected Works of H.P. Lovecraft by November 19th 2013 to raise funds in support of the Mental Health charity Mind.

If you are up to the challenge of reading all (or almost all depending on your chosen edition) then you can do good while reading about depravity, madness and cosmic evil.

All money raised as well as all the dues collected for November's normal meeting will be donated to Mind, the mental health charity.

 

All you have to do is read all HPL's works by 19th November. Easy.

THE PRIZE

While the LovecraftAthon is strictly for charity our friends at Orion Publishing have very generously given us a copy of the Leather bound Hardback edition of both the Necronomicon and Eldritch Tales which we will be giving away to the person who raises the most!!!!! These editions are obviously one of our recommended editions.
