Every want to experience how your favorite authors actually lived?  Well if you’re a fan of the “godfather of pulp horror” H.P. Lovecraft now’s your chance.  According to this post in MentalFloss  his one-bedroom apartment inside a Victorian house in Providence, Rhode Island is for rent.

Evidently after two miserable years living in Brooklyn, Lovecraft returned to his home town and “moved in with his two elderly aunts, who lived in a house on 10 Barnes Street. There, the burgeoning author spent the next seven years writing some of his most famous stories, including “The Call of Cthulhu.”
