This subject contains information from the Mythos Adjacent Works, and while share similar themes and features of the Mythos are not based on his work, or generally considered a part of the Mythos proper. 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.

Notes[]

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