"In his house at R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming..." - English translation of Aklo verse

This article is written on a topic within the Greater Cthulhu Mythos based on information from works in the Mythos. By default, all information is to be assumed to derive from the Lovecraft Myth Cycle unless otherwise marked.

Aldebaran (The Eye of the Bull) is the star of the Great Old One Hastur. It lies in the constellation of Taurus, near the Pleiades. Hastur inhabits the Lake of Hali on a planet circling a dark star near Aldebaran. The Celaeno Library might also be located here.


Aldeberan as it appears in the mythos may be connected with Marion Zimmer Bradley's Darkover novels, which also use the Hastur myth.
