it was amazing

What I have learned from this book is that there are about a million bazillion references to Mythos monsters nobody ever heard of in the Mythos canons, which by now includes a collection about the size of the Library of Congress. This beautiful, exhaustive treatment of Things Mythos should be included in the library of anyone at all interested in the works of H P Lovecraft and his colleagues, as it includes entries on just about Every. Single. Damn. Monster. Place. Person. and Thing appearing anywhere at all in Mythos literature. A revised version has come out; I'm still trying to lay hands on it at an affordable price. I love this book, which should be subtitled, LIFE, THE MULTIVERSE, AND EVERY SINGLE NIGHTMARE YOU NEVER WANTED TO EXPERIENCE. {Say goodnight to the people, Shub dear . . .)
