Um, wow...I don't even know where to begin.
First of all, HPL never wrote any "books" he wrote only short stories and poems that were included in various small publications like "Weird
Tales" in the 1920's - 1930's. Also, he was the originator of the mythos, as well as tons of fictional "grimmoires" that were included in them
(like the Necronomicon, which some dolts still think is a real book,) though there were *many* other authors who wrote within the same milieu.
Cthulhu absolutely was NOT inspired by any real entity and was only *loosely* based on the archetypes of the Kraken and Leviathan. Whoever said he was
"made out of light" is absolutely clueless or got that idea from a complete liar.
I have been published among the modern Lovecraft circle, so I damn well know what I am talking about. This isn't to mention I have spoken at length
with modern mythos writers who know Lovecraft's work and life like the back of their hands.
Ugh, please do not include an endearing icon such as Cthulhu into the lunatic fringe. It's embarrassing.
