One of my favorite weird possessions is this Miskatonic University Graduate Kit, which I found at either ReaderCon or the Florida-based ICFA convention. I do remember Kelly Link looking rather mournfully at my find, hopeful there might be another copy….This is the real deal, illustrated by Gahan Wilson, with all sorts of forms and bumper stickers and a full list of classes offered. It’s the kind of playful artifact that shows a loving regard for Lovecraft’s work but also an equally healthy tendency to send up the source material.
Below the cut you’ll find a few more teasers from this kit.
While you peruse the images, perhaps you’d also care to share with us what fictional college you’d most like to attend? The writer of our favorite answer will receive a signed copy of our Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities, featuring the weird fiction of Michael Moorcock, China Mieville, Amal El-Mohtar, Alan Moore, Caitlin R. Kiernan, and Michael Cisco, with art by Mike Mignola among others. We’ll also fill the box chockful of weird and cool extra stuff. Deadline: Sunday, Nov.13, midnight Eastern Standard Time
