Elder things. Ghasts. Night-gaunts. Meet the creatures of the Cthulhu Mythos, denizens of the dark but brilliant imagination of H. P. Lovecraft. The collection of occult horror and fantasy he penned during his short lifetime is a legacy that has terrified and inspired generations of fans. Lovecraft's tales reveal the horror of seeing what has been hidden from humanity for good reason.

Written for those curious about Lovecraft and his work, this illustrated guide presents detailed descriptions of twenty-nine of the monsters, creatures, and gods that inhabit Lovecraft's macabre fictional universe, without any spoilers that could ruin a future read of his stories. It also includes an introduction to the man regarded as the father of American horror.

The spawn of Cthulhu—or as I like to call them, the Little C—are the brethren to Cthulhu, the difference being that their stature and powers are smaller when compared with the Big C. From Lovecraft’s writing it is not clear if they are the actual offspring of Cthulhu, but the word spawn communicates to the reader the watery existence of their world (for now, that is, but when the stars are...

According to Lovecraft, at the center of the universe there is a god. This deity, seemingly at the most important place in all of existence, would at first appear to be its raison d’être: the universe’s materialization from thought into reality.Now imagine a corpulent mass of swirling, chaotic forms and shapes, eerily piping a thin-reeded tune without any melody or rhythm. Around this deity, like...

When we think of meditation, we tend to think of Eastern meditation techniques. Many are familiar with zazen, for example—sitting, attending to the breath, and bringing the mind back from stray thoughts. Or maybe we think of yogic meditation, focused on a particular image or idea to the exclusion of all else. "Meditation" just comes with an... read this article
