Tor Mented Comments: Regarding the use of Lovecraft’s name. I believe that the proper names of people and places can’t be copyrighted. The makers of a certain 2002 movie musical can’t copyright the name Chicago so that no one else could use it. I think something similar happened with one of the Amityville movies. Amityville is a real village in New York. So somebody made a horror flick with Amityville in the title, without paying royalties, and the original “Amityville Horror” folks couldn’t do a thing about it. Correct me if I’m wrong.

So anyone can slap Lovecraft on a book. If need be, they could say it’s a reference to Seymour W. Lovecraft or Wendell Q. Lovecraft and not Howard Phillips.

As for the overall cover, H.P. Lovecraft was a lifelong teetotaler and very adamant in that view. So having a Lovecraft “café” that is obviously serving booze is a lot like having a PETA barbecue shop.

Tag Wizard: Possible comedy but we’ve been bending the rules for so long who cares. (Same with game spinoff books, series, and whatnot). At least we have some new covers but we could use a lot more. Keep ’em coming.
