The stercotype is one of vague adjectives: abnormal, unutterable, ‘monstrous. And true, we're told of Great Cthulhu: The Thing cannot be described-there is no language for such abysms of shrieking and immemorial lunacy, ‘such eldritch contradictions of all master, force, and cosmic order. A mountain walked or stumbled. But consider what else is said of Cthulhu, when the Great Old One first rises from R’lyeh: ity gelatinous green immensity, the green, sticky spawn of the stars, the flabby claws, the mountainous monstrosity, the pursuing jelly, the awful squid-head with writhing feelers. And, with the most pungent adjective in all of Lovecraft, great Cthulhu slides greasily into the water: Earlier in “The Call of Cthulhu” we have been shown both a bas-relief and a small carving of Cthulhu, the latter of which furnishes a particularly conerete description: It represented a monster of vaguely anthropoid out- line, but with an actopus-tike head whose face was a mass of feelers, a scaly, rubbery-looking body, prodi- gious claws on hind and fore feet, and long, narrow ‘wings behind, In this way Cthulhu’s shape is delineated long before wwe see it, Later, when we view the Thing itself, Lovecraft feels ro need to describe Cthulhu further, except inasmuch as the creature differs from its image: Therefore he tells us of Cthulhu’s mountain- ‘ous size and-confirming his “rubbery-looking ‘body"-his disgusting sofiness and liability. When Cthulhu finally appears in the story, Lovecraft is able 10 elaborate on tre meaning of his physical presence, and how it destroys the lives and sanity of those who behold it In the scene of Cthulhu chasing the erew of the Emma we can observe ‘he heart of Lovecratt’s philosophy man, tiny and insignificant, pursued by forces vast, terrible, and incomprehensible. But the fact that Great ‘Cthulhu is a symbol is trivial 1f that was all there was to it, | doubt we'd still be talking about it almost eighty years Inter. No, what's memorable about Cthulhu is the awful physicality, the enormous bulk, the wings and tentacles, the greasiness. This is the clay made flesh. It’s no surprise that in the book you're reading now, two separate artists have given us renditions of this awful, almost primal scene. In truth Lovecraft’ horrors were almost always phys- ical: Think of the dissolution of Dr. Muioz in “Cool Air,” the flesh-eating canine things of “Pickman’s Model,” and Walter Gilman’s fate in “The Dreams in the Witch-House.” In later stories, Lovecraft delighted in describing alien societies, but he also loved alien bodies: squamous Deep Ones, fungoid Mi-Go, the conical Great Race, and the star-headed Old Ones of ‘Antarctica, frozen in ice and put on display for our wonderment, Even the Haunter of the Dark sears a single organie image into our brains, with its three- lobed burning eye. His cities and landscapes are equally palpable Aricham bas its erumbling gable roofs, Kingsport its mists, and Dunwich its squalid shacks. Even the unknown places evoke images; when we are told of the “demonic plateau of Leng,” our minds are given space to project an image of this sinister place-a panorama sketched in a few syllables. Of course, the modem Cthulhu Mythos encompasses more than just Lovecraft. In this book you will find images drawn from or influenced by the works of Robert E. Howard, Clark Ashton Smith, Robert Bloch, Frank Belknap Long, August Derleth, Robert Chambers, Ramsey Campbell, James Blish, Brian Lumley, and T.E.D. Klein, not to mention the dis- cased minds of those at Chaosium and Fantasy Flight Games. In this book you'll see things you've never seen. bbefore-or maybe you have seen them, if you're truly gifled, or truly unlucky. The Lovecraftian vision is one of uncomfortable things lurking just beyond normal sight. Lovecraftian horror is a photograph from life. / herein wo find scholars, m ‘ those who make a study of the her- metie and arcane. Take, for instance, the Silver Twilight Lodge. It may a harmless diversion for the we -d moder eccentric, but behind its ritual- istic hogwash li ing darker, and ‘much, much older. Perhaps hints oP th eal purpose may be gleaned from the Mad Arab Abdul become only too familiar with its dread pa sages. Other Scholars we discover here have Ht understanding through unethical rites.

His work has profoundly influenced several generations of Science fiction, fantasy, and macabre writers His tales of cosmic teror, and those of his many ‘admirers and imitators, form an extensive body ‘of fiction called the “Cthulhu Mythos,” named after Lovecraft’s most famous creation, the malign, many-tentacled alien god Cthulhu, The Art of H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos is a jourmey into the dark and haunting images inspired by the books and stories of the Cthulhu Mythos. H.P, Lovecraf's stories have fueled the imaginations of hundreds of authors and ‘countless readers, with their suggestions of ancient and terrible beings beside which humankind is insignificant, and the horrible truths that our minds are not meant to know. Now, for the first time, the ar inspired by these classic tales of horror is collected in one lavish volume, featuring paintings and drawings by some of today's most talented artists, including Michael Komarck, ‘Torstein Nordstrand, Paul Carrick, Anders Finer, ‘and dozens of others.
