I'm looking for a dark fantasy short story by Lovercraft or a protege, possibly Clark Ashton Smith, featuring ghouls who perform the funeral rites for a mythical Middle Eastern city. It also may have something like a Tower of Silence. I remember reading it years ago but can't find it among my collection of anthologies.
What's on your mind?
there are subspecies of the deep ones
According to one theory, Azathtoth, the blind idiot god destined to end all reality, is closer to home then we think. Nor is Azathoth one being. Azathoth, is US, the reader. Think about it, when you read a book with no pictures in it, you must use your imagination to bring the world to life. Lovecraft's stories are no different. As we read the books, we bring everyone and everything to life in our imagination and witness horror, action, suspense, etc unfold in our daydreams. The action is like the beat of maddening drums.
Then when we shut the book and stop dreaming, it all ceases to be and everything we read about becomes a part of our memory until we choose to read again, just like Azathoth waking up and everything becoming him again, or should I I say, become US again? How does it feel, knowing you commited Omnicide on all those people and monsters in the stories? Sleep well kiddos.

Me, who knows about the Cthulhu Mythos:
The British synthwave band Gunship made a music video for Cthulhu, so I was just wondering if I could make a page for the song.
Mix the Bioshock aesthetic with lovecraftian horror.
Maybe Cthulhu was in a group with Umibozu and the kraken, but got defeated by dryads and stuff idk im new here
A lot of other inspired works are on here but Lavelle's novel "The Ballad of Black Tom" which is a retelling of "The Murder at Red Hook" is noticibly absent. Considering Jason Voorhese is on here I'm not sure why Black Tom isnt.
I just played Returnal and the game introduced me to the world of Lovecraft. I love reading sci-fi stories, and I cant wait to immerse myself into the stories of this genre. But I really don't know where to start. Can you guys recommend some popular Lovecraft movies and books for me to start with?
My name is Isaac, I'm 17 years old and I'm trying to fulfill my dream. Since I was a kid I always wanted to create videogames, but until now I hadn't done a long project or one that I was proud of. In February of this year I started a project that had been going around in my head since I started developing videogames, a story based on one of the best horror writers ever, HP Lovecraft.
One thing I always wanted was for this game to be made by a community and that's what I've been doing(Or, rather, we are doing). I'm developing this project by myself, I program, design, write the story, do the art, everything else, and I need your help.
Almost daily I ask polls, questions, ask for feedback on mechanics, on art, on just about everything, on my INSTAGRAM and TWITTER accounts, I would appreciate it if you could join this cool community we are forming and help me create the game of my dreams.
also, if you want to have your own character in the game, appear in the credits, support this project and participate in a more active way in the development, join my PATREON and join my cultists
you can also support me by buying me a coffee
Thank you for reading this far
Does anyone have a full family tree of Cthulhu and his mates? I'm just curious.

I've been digging around yet can not seem to or infact, have never been able to find out what the crimson altar actually does in the film: Curse of the crimson altar. Anyone know or have theories to what it does?
I am sort of a newbie in this mythos, but I am writing my own sort of guide to it. I was wondering what some of the biggest deities and abominations would be, i.e. Shoggoths, Cthulhu, Azatoth, and Deep Ones. Thanks for the Help
Juk-Shabb is the God in the short story "The Challenge From Beyond." However, he is not named in it. Where was this God first named?
