IMAGINARY WORLDS IS A BI-WEEKLY PODCAST HOSTED BY ERIC MOLINSKY ABOUT SCI-FI AND OTHER FANTASY GENRES -- HOW WE CREATE THEM AND WHY WE SUSPEND OUR DISBELIEF​.


Copyright © Imaginary Worlds. All rights reserved.

This week's episode is a radio drama, and a co-production with the excellent podcast Here Be Monsters. When it comes to monsters, I'm really fascinated by Cthulhu. The horror writer H.P. Lovecraft describes it as a gargantuan, aquatic being with tentacles on its mouth, and bat-like wings  Yet there's so much cute merchandise turning that green grotesque into an ironic meme. Maybe these merchants are true believers trying to manage their terror of the Great Old One, because they know it's real -- and rising. With Sheldon Solomon, Dan Truman, Bill Lobley and Ann Scobie
