Cult pulp writer H. P. Lovecraft is shown the love in “The Night Ocean,” the new novel from upstate New York resident Paul Lafarge. It is a curious tribute to the imagination and the alt-Modernist genre of “weird fiction,” and a meditation on metempsychosis — the transmigration of souls.

Alt Right Jane: Pride And The Prejudiced
...Jane Austen as a European writer speaks to peculiar conditions of European man, the same way Langston Hughes and Chaim Potok speak to their respective black and Jewish readers.

The Alt-Right, Jane Austen, and Whiteness
What these white liberals fail to realize, of course, is that the works of Jane Austen are a product of white civilization. It is impossible to conceive of the world of Austen without whiteness. The English ladies and gentlemen, their country estates and their charming manners are bursting with whiteness. The appreciation of Austen’s books is equally entwined with whiteness, although the whiteness is implicit.

Jane Austen, Western Restorationist
Austen not only touches on, but by arguing for certain attitudes within them, endorses some of the most taboo institutions to Leftists, including caste systems, eugenics and aristocracy. In the Austen world, people are either good or bad, and those that behave according to the psychology of Leftism are parasitic and threatening.

"It seems horrible to say that Emma's small matchmaking has in it the seed of the pestilence of Eugenics. But it is true." ~Jane Austen: Critical Assessments, Volume 2 edited by Ian Littlewood
