The H.P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast (hppodcraft.com) has been running since 2009 and has done two very successful live shows. One in Leeds, West Yorkshire in 2012 and one at the NecronomiCon in Providence in 2013. Now that it's 2015, we feel it's about time to step up our game and do two live shows in one year! One in Providence, again at NecronomiCon and in Chicago, Illinois this October. And we need your help to do it!

This Kickstarter is not just about live shows, we plan on doing audio recordings of these shows for all the folks that can't make it. We're also going to be trying out our Lovecraftian Comedy Quiz show as well. Trivia and comedy in one live event? YES! 

We're coming from the California and the UK - the money we raise will pay for our travel and lodging when we're in New England and Chicago. 

All audio will initially be exclusively for backers of this Kickstarter. So if you can't make it to Providence, you can still be part of the fun!

$6,500 STRETCH GOAL REACHED!!!: Full story reading of H.P. Lovecraft's 'The Statement of Randolph Carter' read by Andrew Leman!

$7,200 STRETCH GOAL REACHED!!!: Full story reading of 'The Yellow Wallpaper' by Charlotte Perkins Gilman read by Heather Klinke!

$7,900 STRETCH GOAL: Full story reading of H.P. Lovecraft's The Outsider OR Pickman's Model (chosen by vote) as read by Greig Johnson!

Risks and challenges

The only real risk is if Chicago is invaded by Canada, one of us gets bit by white crescent marked snake or Cthulhu rises from R'Lyeh. We get funded, we're going to Providence and Chicago!
