As I was driving through the town of Middle River, Maryland, yesterday, I saw the word “Lovecraft” on a huge sign outside a store. What surprised me was that it didn’t have gothic script, a dark font, or anything horror-related about it. In fact, it looked very friendly, with a big red lipstick kiss covering the “L”.
As I was already stopped at a red light in front of the store, I craned my neck around to see what kind of horrific commerce the store could be involved in. I could see on the front window, was the word, “Bookstore” and that made sense. Then, beneath that, the word “Adult” which made a little less sense. Of course, I thought, the stygian abyss is not for the children to understand. The approbation could only be to protect the younger minds. . .
Then I thought about it again, Adult Bookstore – Love craft . . . oh. Never mind.
Next time I’m in the area, I’ll grab a picture.
