Heroes of paper shows his love towards H.P. Lovecraft with The Dreamer of Providence
For many, the figure of H. P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) supposes the definitive fusion between the last collets of Gothic terror, derived from Edgard Allan Poe, with Weird literature and science fiction that helped to settle gender. The creations of him, strange beings to Earth, of immense power and hidden intentions, have been deeply filtered into society over the years thanks to their powerful impact among genre fans. The rapturing of the importance of the human being in the cosmos, the fear of the existence of older creatures than the land and the discovery of the absence of gods and protectors are hidden behind creations such as Cthulhu, Nyarlathotep or necronomicon. Aesthetic, philosophical and narrative thoughts that come to light through dreams and reflection around the work of him.
The Dreamer of Providence is a thorough study of the latest theories and work on Lovecraft, a journey through the teachers of him, feathermates and the works of him who intends to serve as a bridge to build a new imagery about the author in our idiom. The book also analyzes the influence that the creations of it have had in the language and mechanics used in videogames, as well as in other areas such as board games or role. The reader will also find in this book different reflections on some of the most important videogames based on the author s work and on other titles that drink deeply from the philosophy and aesthetic vision of him.
