Encyclopedia Cthulhiana (Call of Cthulhu Novel) by Daniel Harms



Who you gonna call? Encyclopedia Cthulhiana. Or rather, to give its proper and full title, Encyclopedia Cthulhiana, Being an Investigation into the Myth-Patterns of the Xothic and Commorium Legend-Cycles with Notes on the Alhazredic Demonology, or, A Compendium of Lore Relating to Those Beings Who Once Ruled the Universe and Those Who Have Revered and Renounced Them, As Expressed Through the Mythology of All Cultures and Explained. Lovecraft and Others in a Manner Thought to Be Fictional by the Uninitiated and Rational

Encyclopedia Cthulhiana (Call of Cthulhu Novel). It's a meaty 425 page volume, part of Chaosium's collection of Cthulhu Mythos fiction, and presents itself unapologetically as an encyclopedia of the Cthulhu Mythos, including not only the canon stories and poetry, but also embracing games, essays, comic books, movies, television shows, and occult books. His book, THE ENCYCLOPEDIA CTHULHIANA is a comprehensive guide to all the beings, entities, creatures and races which dwell in the tales of the Mythos and Dreamlands; the far worlds and dimensions from which they came, and all the forbidden books, texts and grimoires which spoke of such things through the ages.

The Encyclopedia Cthulhiana book. As a person who runs Call of Cthulhu the RPG, it's also fantastic for using in-game for adventure hooks and plot ideas. Flip to a random page, look at a random entry, and the scene practically writes itself. Shelves: lovecraft-mythos. Not a readable book so much as a one-stop reference to ian, both as written by HPL himself and by the generations of writers after him who also engaged in Yog-Sothothery.

This little pink book lists many gods and creatures from the collective cthulhu mythos. All the major ones you already know will be listed as well as many you might not. It is a straightforward book. Do not expect any stories or pictures and you will be fine. It is a useful refrence tool and as long as that is what your looking for then this is perfect. Yup.

Great reference for any budding lovecraft enthusiast.

I am rating this book so highly because of its exhaustive nature and usefulness as a resource. There were many terms that I had been confused about and was glad to find a reference for. The MOST useful aspect, though, was to discover which stories included settings or characters that I wanted to read more about (the Severn Valley comes to mind). The Cthulhiana has been excellent in that respect, as I now know which authors and stories to pursue further. My biggest problem with this book is the ridiculous mythologization of Lovecraft's deities (I think this is primarily due to Lin Carter). There's a an awful lot of "and so great Cthulhu mated with Asdfgh to produce the hideous offspring Qwer'ty-Zxc'vb, who did reside under Mt. Nyctalopolis until 1953..." The combination of endless run-on names ("I'd like to buy a vowel"...) and unnecessary family relations, like some sort of Jerry Springer show from the Xothian system, induces humor rather than horror in me. Perhaps Chaosium would print an expurgated version, without Carter's mythology crap (it seems there's an expurgated version of every OTHER text floating around) ...
