Horribly Prolific

In his review of Stephen King’s Danse Macabre (above), Jason Zinoman also considers the work of H. P. Lovecraft, which inspired King. This might not be the best exercise if, like me, you get down about your productivity, but consider the fact that Lovecraft only lived to 46 and then take a look at the list of his works. And scroll. And scroll. And scroll.

Granted, most of the list is made up of individual short stories and poems, but still: It’s gray and dreary here this morning, and I’m having some trouble summoning the energy to add warm milk to oatmeal.
