ďIíve been a fan of HP Lovecraft since I was about 17. I chose to read this story because itís very unusual for him; itís not like his other tales. They are usually about people who live underground, or threats to humanity - which I like as well - but The Colour Out Of Space is quite futuristic. He wrote it in 1927, which is weird.
ďIím writing my own book at the moment. Itís supposed to be my autobiography, but Iíve put a few short stories in it too. Itís out in April 2008. My stories are very much like Lovecraftís actually. Everyone wants me to write about dark and doomy things, like my lyrics. But some of my stories are quite cheerful.Ē
