Despina E. Durand

Welcome to the website of Despina E. Durand, bookseller, designer, critic, armchair philosopher, horror theorist, and sentient pile of black fabric.

In addition to working with the Lovecraft Arts & Science Council to promote the legacy of Weird fiction from its ancestral New England home, I use my Journalism degree and Film Studies certificate to develop critical material on the subjects of popular culture, politics, and economics. (It is much more lighthearted than it sounds, I promise!) My photographic work focuses on documentation, particularly of street art, urban ephemera, and the built environment. My writing tends to focus on my media consumption. (Here be monsters!)
