From Saturday 10:30 until Saturday 11:30 (60 Minutes)

Participants: Dave Cake, Keira McKenzie

The motif of the dead civilisation or dead race is a common one in Lovecraftian horror, even the dead planet. Much of Lovecrafts work implies that our civilisation, our race, and our planet may soon join them. Why is this sense of doom such an important part of cosmic horror? What form does a Lovecraftian apocalypse take?
