  1. Yay for cosmic horror!

    Seriously now, I think it’s a cool idea that Lovecraft’s dreams actually had some truth behind them.
    Btw, although I know that many of Lovecraft’s stories (for example, The Statement of Randolph Carter) were inspired by a dream, I’m not sure whether Call of Cthulhu was as well? Does anyone know more about that?

      It started as artistic license on my part. As it turns out though, the first section of Lovecraft’s story, dealing with an antiquarian examining a modern bas-relief of ancient design, is derived from an entry from his Commonplace Book that was itself a transcription of a dream he’d had in 1920. So the dates don’t quite work, but it was closer to the truth than I’d realized when I wrote it.
