Some 1,000 fans of author HP Lovecraft are converging on Providence for a gathering starting Thursday and running through the weekend.
The event, called NecronomiCon, is designed to celebrate the life and works of the author who crossed science fiction with horror stories.
Lovecraft was born on Providence’s east side, and Phil Eil of the Providence Phoenix wrote a story about the author and the gathering, he joins Rhode Island Public Radio's Dave Fallon to talk about Lovecraft's mark on Providence.
