H.P. Lovecraft Film Would Make Great eBook Bundle

When the Apple iPad arrives, it will bring a whole new set of relationships between writers and other creators. What kind of new relationships would you like to see?

Earlier this week, this editor was watching the excellent film, The Call of Cthulhu. Created by the loving fans at H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society (HPLHS), these artists imagined how a silent film director would have adapted Lovecraft’s classic novel in the 1920s. When the iPad and other tablet computers are more integrated into our reading experience, this editor hopes publishers can team up with creators like the HPLHS to create multimedia packages–perhaps bundling the film alongside the eBook.

In the meantime, you can stream the movie at Netflix and check out the book here. The group is working on an adaptation of The Whisperer in Darkness next–check out the project here.
