Unfortunately I have occasionally ran across instances where Mr. Harms references a story that is no longer in print and hard to find even after contacting the author or the story. That would be my only gripe. Sep 16, Michelle rated it it was ok. Checked this out at the library some time ago. This is like when you try to explain a joke. Dissecting only makes it worse. The same principle applies to Lovecraft. If you have to explain horror, then you just don't get it. Lovecraft's "pantheon" consisted of whatever was necessary to tell an effective story.
He didn't have any consistency to it so any attempt at a "guidebook" is a fruitless effort.

Essentially, nice try but cigar. Very well researched and put together. The point of view of being in universe was very neat, and they made sure to list the stories they gathered the entry from at the end of each in addition to the sources listed at the end of the book. Sort of a dry read from cover to cover, but it's an encyclopedia. Keep this within arms reach when you are reading anything Lovecraft related. Google searching this stuff will make your head spin with all the different results you will get. Trust Daniel Harms. He knows his stuff. May 04, Courteny rated it it was amazing.
Great for references and other works. I found it in a flea market type shop and was thrilled.

Very handy for those who are doing writing that ties into the Cthulhu Mythos of H. Lovecraft and his successors. Harms goes to great lengths to provide descriptions and citations for many of the most popular and some of the more obscure entities, locales and artifacts found within the dizzying body of work.
Jun 11, sologdin rated it liked it Shelves: burns-like-cold-iron. May 29, Alis Franklin rated it it was amazing Shelves: horror. One of the books I lugged around with me everywhere as a kid; my copy is tattered and stained and has even flown with me to Europe and back. Definitely a worthwhile resource for anyone interested in the mythos. Oct 05, Cameron rated it really liked it Shelves: horror. This ought to give you an idea of the complexity and expansiveness of the Cthulhu mythos.
