H. P. Lovecraft Comics by Jason Thompson
Jason Thompson's cool H.P. Lovecraft comics include The Cats of Ulthar, The Doom that Came to Sarnath, and a lot of miscellaneous Lovecraft themed sketches. Amazing that he manages to post weekly, so few web comic artists are able to do this (understandably considering the work involved!)
National Halloween Convention
The National Halloween, Horror, Haunted Attractions and Hearses convention will take place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania from May 3-5, 2013. There will be over 100 vendors - it must be so fun to check the exhibition hall out! The show also offers classes, a costume ball, a Makeup War costume contest, and an Artist's Alley.
This H.P. Lovecraft festival takes place in Providence, Rhode Island, August 23 – 25, 2013. This year's theme is "The Rational and the Supernatural."
West Coast Haunters Convention
This convention is for all haunters, not just professionals. It will take place May 31 through June 2nd at the DoubleTree Hotel in Portland, Oregon. It's never too early to think about your Halloween preparations!
The Curio Emporium
This shop sells taxidermy items, osteology items, entomological specimens, and some jewelry along those same themes. There are some really creepy specimen jars here too.
John E. L. Tenney's Weird Lectures
This site is full of fascinating articles on subjects such as ESP, cold readings, occult sciences, haunted locations, ghost and hauntings and other paranormal topics. My favorite post here so far is Hoaxing Haunts.
This is a haunted house review site. They also blog about "elegant Victorian horror" and macabre entertainment. Besides haunted houses in several states, they also review off-season events and haunt conventions.
