Sigma 2 Foxtrot 058 – Eberhard Weidner: „Der Mann, der Lovecraft sammelte“ und Nick Mamatas und Tim Pratt „The dude who collected Lovecraft“

ARKHAM INSIDERS

In dieser Episode ist die Autorin Petra Grell zu Gast. Wir unterhalten uns über drei Kurzgeschichten mit ähnlichem Thema und sogar ähnlichen Titeln. Es geht um fanatische Sammler, deren Sammelleidenschaft sie an den Rand des Wahnsinns treibt. Respekt für alle, die schreiben; Titel, die man erkennt, aber nicht einordnen kann; gute Geschichten fangen immer im Herbst an und alle Protagonisten fahren zu einem abgelegenen Haus; Sammler sind Sammler im eigenen Universum; eine Geschichte erzeugt eine Geschichte; unendliche Texte; die Tiefen Wesen sind überzeugend; der Abstieg in die Unterwelt; der gesuchte Found Footage Film ist Grave Encounters 1 & 2; wenn Lovecraft drauf steht, kaufen wir es; Hörbücher sind immer gut; Lovecraft als handelnde Person, suspekt oder nicht; künstlerische Freiheit; Raketenwissenschaft, d.h. Out of the box denken; Sturgeon’s Law; einfach schreiben; woher wusste Lovecraft von den Großen Alten; die Großen Alten sprechen durch ihre Träume; Weidners Kurzgeschichte nimmt durch den Text Verbindung zu den Texten Lovecrafts auf; luzides Träumen; Lovecrafts Träume; Night Gaunts; Der Buchtrinker von Klaas Huizing; Die Zehn Rechte des Lesers: Korrektur! Die Rechte des Lesers stellt Daniel Pennac auf; die antiken Tragödien: immer ein Best of; eine Story erreicht oft durch den Sprecher des Hörbuchs eine neue Dimension; Hard boiled Lovecraft; Moving Under Ground von Nick Mamatas; Bücher von Eberhard Weidner findet man überall, wo es e-Books gint; Vorsichtig sein, wenn es mit Sammlern zu tun hat; langes Sammeln; wir werden beschützt von Night Gaunts und Cthulhu.
