New Escapist Column! On “Lovecraft Country” and Making Room in America’s Imaginary Spaces…

I published a new piece at The Escapist earlier today. Lovecraft Country premiered last week, an interesting exploration of a particular type of American weird fiction.

Lovecraft Country is a show that consciously blurs the line between America’s landscapes and its dreamscapes. In doing so, it touches on the psychological horror of generations of segregation of these spaces, exploring what it means for entire groups of people to have been excluding from these places real and imaginary. Lovecraft Country is about trying to navigate this terrain, and in doing so explores this familiar ground from a new angle.
