It savoured of the wildest dreams of myth-maker and theosophist, and disclosed an astonishing degree of rf imagination among such half-castes and pariahs as might be least expected to possess it. Open Preview See a Problem?
Refresh and try again. Professor Webb had been engaged, forty-eight years before, in a tour of Greenland and Iceland in search of some Runic inscriptions which he failed to unearth; and whilst high up on the West Greenland coast had encountered a singular tribe or cult of degenerate Esquimaux whose religion, a curious form of devil-worship, chilled him with its deliberate bloodthirstiness and repulsiveness.
Lovecraft’s major inspiration and invention was cosmic horror: He sat upright in bed, astonished to find himself at home and completely ignorant of what had happened in dream or reality since the night of March 22nd. The size of the Old Ones, too, he curiously declined to mention. He cut himself off hurriedly, and no amount of persuasion or subtlety could elicit more in this direction.
What, in substance, both the Esquimau wizards and the Louisiana swamp-priests had chanted to their kindred idols was something very like this—the word-divisions being guessed at from traditional breaks in the phrase as chanted aloud: A weird bunch of cuttings, all told; and I can at this date scarcely envisage the callous rationalism with which I set them aside.

“The Call of Cthulhu” by H. P. Lovecraft
It represented a monster of vaguely anthropoid outline, but with an octopus-like head whose face was a mass of feelers, a scaly, rubbery-looking body, prodigious claws on hind and fore feet, and long, narrow wings behind. On the contrary, his wish for enlightenment was prompted by purely professional considerations.
Voodoo orgies multiply in Hayti, and African outposts report ominous mutterings. The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. On this now leaped and twisted a more indescribable horde of human abnormality than any but a Sime or an Angarola could paint. Remains of Them, he said the deathless Chinamen had told him, were still to be found as Cyclopean stones on islands in the Pacific.
But it is not from them that there came the single glimpse of forbidden aeons which chills me when I think of it and maddens me when I dream of it. It appears that on March 1st,a thin, dark young man of neurotic and excited aspect had called upon Professor Angell bearing the singular clay bas-relief, which was then exceedingly damp and fresh.
But it made men dream, and so they knew enough to keep away.
The bas-relief was a rough rectangle less than an inch thick and about five by six inches in area; obviously of modern origin. Share Facebook Twitter Pinterest.

All of these, however, bore out the notes in full. Wilcox was a precocious youth of known genius but great eccentricity, and had from childhood excited attention through the strange stories and odd dreams he was in the habit of relating.
Locally, interest was intensified by the obscurity of the cause of death.
Lovecraft has developed a cult following for his Cthulhu Mythos, a series of loosely interconnected fictions featuring a pantheon of human-nullifying entities, as well as the Necronomicon, a fictional grimoire of magical rites and forbidden lore.
Theosophists have guessed at the awesome grandeur ses the cosmic cycle wherein our world and human race form transient incidents. But before many questions were asked, it became manifest that something far deeper and older than negro fetichism was involved.
Tobey, convinced the professor that it must be identical with the nameless monstrosity he had sought to depict in his dream-sculpture.
For five minutes the resultant din and chaos were beyond description. When, after infinities of chaos, the first men came, the Great Old Ones spoke to the sensitive among them by moulding their dreams; for only thus could Their language reach the fleshly minds of mammals. This thing, which seemed instinct with a fearsome and unnatural malignancy, was of a somewhat bloated corpulence, and squatted evilly on a rectangular block or pedestal covered with undecipherable characters.

So a body of twenty police, filling two carriages and an automobile, had set out cer the late afternoon with the shivering squatter as a guide. This original correspondence was not preserved, but his notes formed a thorough and really significant digest. They lovecrxft, so they said, the Great Old Ones who lived ages before there were any men, and who came to the young world out of the sky. Professor Angell must have employed a cutting bureau, for the number of extracts was tremendous and the sources scattered throughout the globe.
It was inside this circle that the ring of worshippers jumped and roared, the general direction of the mass motion being from left to right in endless Bacchanal between the ring of bodies and the ring of fire. Fthulhu and ignorant as they were, the creatures held with surprising consistency to the central idea of their loathsome faith.
