An unassuming stone proudly proclaims “I am Providence.” Located in the Swan Point Cemetery in Providence, Rhode Island. The items visible are perhaps tokens left behind by other fans, but I only had an Altoid.

He’s not dead. Just lying and dreaming ;)
True, true, Vaggelis. I submitted this to the Cthulhu group even though it doesn’t really fit . . . I thought his fans might be interested in seeing his mouldering tomb.
he must have been bad big stone holding him down
Not far from Lovecraft’s grave is a little granite tombstone in the shape of a house, very handily crafted (love-crafted?) that simply says ‘Gone Home’ on it. Interesting cemetery.
wow…this actually brought a tear to my eye. If you ever go back, could you maybe put a little flower there for me? I don’t know if I’ll ever get to Rhode Island myself but I sure would love to visit. HPL is my ultimate literary hero and inspiration. x
