The Cthulhu Mythos was first created by H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937), a Providence author considered by many to be the finest horror story writer of the twentieth century. Lovecraft's tales are a blend of fantasy, science fiction, and horror, with the latter being especially prominent. His tales describe a pantheon of powerful beings known as the Great Old Ones. Since Lovecraft's time the Cthulhu Mythos has grown exponentially, until it has become increasingly difficult to keep track of, even for devoted fans. Many writers have contributed to it, including Robert E. Howard, Robert Bloch, Brian Lumley, and Stephen King. This book is the first major attempt in many years to provide a comprehensive guide to H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos. The second edition of Encyclopedia Cthulhiana contains over a hundred and fifty additional pages and scores of new entries. New features includes thumbnail illustrations of the most important signs and symbols (see sample, left) and a timeline of the Cthulhu Mythos spanning billions of years. Many entries have been revised to reflect our latest understanding of the Mythos, and the infamous Necronomicon appendix has been greatly expanded. Also present for the first time is "A Brief History of the Cthulhu Mythos, " which examines the evolution of the genre from the 1920s to today. A Great Resource for Call of Cthulhu players! This book is part of an expanding collection of Cthulhu Mythos horror fiction and related topics. Call of Cthulhu fiction focuses on single entities, concepts, or authors significant to readers and fans of H.P. Lovecraft.

H.P. Lovecraft und Karen Duve – zwei Schriftsteller, die auf den ersten Blick keinerlei Parallelen zueinander aufzuweisen scheinen. Der eine einer der Begründer der modernen, amerikanischen Schauerliteratur, die andere eines der Aushängeschilder der Bewegung, die als deutsches „Fräuleinwunder“ tituliert für junge Autorinnen um die Jahrtausendwende stand. Er oftmals gelesen als eine Verkörperung eines längst vergangenen Weltbildes, das von Kreativität genauso geprägt war wie durch die Furcht vor dem Fremden, sie ein Beispiel für die progressive, furcht- und tabulose Literatur junger, deutscher Schriftsteller. Als Duve zur Welt kam, war Lovecraft bereits 24 Jahre verstorben. Und doch finden sich in Texten der beiden Autoren Parallelen. Lovecraft wie Duve verwenden in einigen ihrer bekanntesten Texte das Motiv humanoider Fisch-Mensch-Hybriden; doch wo formale Ähnlichkeit herrscht, findet sich zugleich große, inhaltliche Differenz. Wie aber kommt es dazu? Warum ist dieses in sich eigenwillige Motiv so einprägsam, und doch zugleich so offen, dass es grundverschiedenen Schriftstellern mit fast diametralen Ansichten dennoch gleichermaßen dienen kann? Dieses Buch begibt sich auf die Suche nach einer Antwort.
