About the Poe and Lovecraft Society of RI 
Beginning with Carl Johnson’s runaway success H.P. Lovecraft Tribute in 1987, the members of the society have crafted events over the last few decades celebrating the lives and works of both Edgar Allan Poe, and weird fiction author H. P. Lovecraft, each of whom have unique connections to New England and, specifically, Rhode Island. Yearly events commemorate each of them on days roughly corresponding to their dates of birth and death.
