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!)
