A Happy Cthulhu Christmas!

December 26, 2013

I’m a fan of the work of the horror/SF pulp writer, H.P. Lovecraft.

Nile’s site is devoted to pictures and photos from Horror and Comics. And so for everyone, who’s read old Howard Philips’ chill prose about the Elder Gods and unhallowed tomes of occult lore, and wondered if their library had a copy of the Necronomicon, even if only the Olaus Wormius’ edition, here it is:

Cthulhu Christmas

Or as the great Nigel Molesworth once said, ‘Dream on, dear child, and do not get the blood all over the bed.’
