HPL kept current with scientific discoveries, and was engaged philosophically with the intellectual traditions of his day (for better or worse), and these served as springboards for his imagination. What are some of the new areas being mined, or on the horizon? Many writers have their pet passions, or places they turn to look for fresh inspiration, as they develop an original voice.
