I had a weird idea that I kinda like, but I'm not sure if it'd be worth the time. As it turns out, everything HP Lovecraft wrote is public domain, so there's nothing legally stopping me or anybody else from using his stuff in our own stories. What I'm thinking is, a YA story set in Arkham, Massachusetts, where the main character either moves with his family or is sent there to attend boarding school. The school is Miskatonic High, and a lot of really weird and scary things are going on around town that the residents either can't see or choose to ignore. It would tie in a whole bunch of Lovecraft's stories, sometimes as plot points and sometimes just as Easter eggs, usually in slightly altered ways to make them fit into a high school setting in the 21st century. So I know that the "kid goes to special school" trope has been done to death, and a lot of people don't like modern retellings of classic stories. But I think this could work because 1. Nobody has tried to bring HP Lovecraft to younger readers that I know of, and 2. I can't think of any Lovecraft stories that have been updated for modern times. What do you guys think? Worth a shot or skip it?
