H. P. Lovecraft
Howard Philips Lovecraft, known popularly as H. P. Lovecraft, was a writer of strange and unusual fiction that is generally classified in the genre of horror, but in truth occupies a category as unnamable as the creatures in his stories. Lovecraft was born in 1890 in Providence, Rhode Island, about a thirty minute drive from where I grew up myself. He devoted his life to writing stories for pulp fiction magazines and carrying on long written correspondences with other authors. He died virtually unknown and poverty stricken at the age of forty seven in 1937.
Jeff Carreira is an author, mystical philosopher and meditation teacher. His novels use the powerful medium of story to illuminate the mysterious ways in which we can awaken to the invisible realms and hidden truths that always lie just beyond the familiar world around us. His stories challenge our fundamental notions about what is real, by presenting characters who find themselves having experiences, or landing in circumstances, that force them to question everything they ever thought. What they discover, in a variety of ways, is that reality is much different than they could have imagined.
