H.P. Lovecraft The Call of Cthulhu

They say you can’t judge a book by its cover. But what if you could judge an author by his or her book?

Artist Selin Arisoy sent us a gallery of images that she created where she took the visage of a handful of timeless fiction authors and characterized them as their famous novels. H.P. Lovecraft as The Call of Cthulhu, Edgar Allan Poe as The Raven, Ray Bradbury as Fahrenheit 451, Mary Shelley as Frankenstein, and Frank Herbert as Dune.

Check them all out below.

Doom Digest

Every day here at Doom HQ we receive tons of tips from our readers about really cool stuff from the world of geek, as well as promotional materials for new films, comic books, collectibles, and much more. While we do our best to bring you as much of it as possible, we don’t always have enough geek manpower available to cover it all on a daily basis. But we hate the idea of all of this really cool stuff wasting away in our inbox. How could we NOT cover it? Hence why we’ve resurrected our long-defunct column Bits Of Doom, now rebranded and revamped as Doom Digest, a collection of easily digestible bits of news, videos, photos, and other goodies.

Today: Battlestar Galactica Colonial Viper and Cylon Raider plushes, a 100th Anniversary poster for Paramount Pictures, a letter of note from Ray Bradbury, an animated filmography for Tim Burton’s works, a $30k Iron Throne From Game Of Thrones and a supercut of every death scene from Season 2, plus Bits Of Doom.

Ray Bradbury

Prolific and award-winning sci-fi author Ray Bradbury passed away yesterday in Los Angeles at the age of 91 after a long illness. He is perhaps best known for his classic novels Fahrenheit 451, The Martian Chronicles, and Something Wicked This Way Comes, but Bradbury also wrote hundreds of short stories, some 47 other books, as well as screenplays, teleplays, poems, essays, plays, and, according to his website, an opera (yes, an opera!) during his illustrious 70-year career.

Bradbury inspired generations to think beyond what was put in front of us, to dream, and to create. While he eschewed such modern inventions as video games and ATMs, and purportedly hated television, he adapted 65 of his stories for a TV series called The Ray Bradbury Theater, which aired first on HBO from 1985-1986 and then on the USA network from 1988-1992.

No fan of eBooks either, Bradbury finally relented last year and allowed Fahrenheit 451 to be published in ebook format, which we wrote about here.

Fahrenheit 451

Oh the irony!

This week, Simon & Schuster released the eBook version of Ray Bradbury‘s classic novel Fahrenheit 451.

The famed 1953 dystopian classic about a future America in which people are ruled by electronic devices, reading is banned, and firefighters are ordered to set fires to burn books expressed Bradbury’s deep-seated belief at the time that society was heading down a bad path where people’s interest in literature and learning would eventually be replaced by television.

The Movie God   |  @   |

It seems like we’ve heard about a multitude of movie adaptations of the works of Ray Bradbury over the years, but but very few have actually been made…not counting A Sound of Thunder, of course, which might be one of the reasons these other films have had so much trouble.

One of the projects we’ve heard was getting a movie treatment more than once, is Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles. It was first acquired by Universal Pictures in 1997 with Steven Spielberg attached as a producer, but that never worked out. And if Steven Spielberg’s name isn’t enough to get a movie to happen, you know you have tough road ahead. Back in June of 2010 we once again heard that a movie was on the way, this time at Fox, but apparently that one never worked out either.
