Finally! It’s only been about twenty years since I first ran across Cthulhu, in the form of the role playing game Call of Cthulhu, in which if your character is not dead or insane by game’s end, you haven’t been trying hard enough. Now I’ve finally read the original short story that this is all based upon, The Call of Cthulhu,
but by H.P. Lovecraft. It was definitely a picturesque scene of horror where Mr. Lovecraft lovingly described the Old One who would rise from the deeps to liberate and devour humanity.
Now I can truly say I’m a geek.
