The godfather of horror, HP Lovecraft is among my favorite authors, and his mythos has been written into history. Even to this day, you can still see Lovecraftian-themed stories, art, even memes of Cthulhu.
I want to read your most horrifying Lovecraftian works. Let me see what your eldritch minds can produce. Rules:
- Must be Lovecraftian. If you are unsure of what I mean, read the footnote.
- Two weeks.
- One entry.
- Old writes accepted; fresh writes encouraged.
- Must be longer than 15 lines.
- If you are familiar with his work, then you know I would like you to be a descriptive as possible, capture every detail. An over-abundance of adjectives is welcomed.
- Can be about a horrific place, a supernatural being, a cosmic entity, a strange occurrence etc.
For an example of what a Lovecraftian work should look like, refer to my piece titled 'INTO THE GATE OF N'RHTEREL'MAHRET at http://deepundergroundpoetry.com/poems/249669-into-the-gate-of-nrhterelmahret/ *WARNING: EXTREME CONTENT*
Or you can just read one of his works.
*Lovecraftian horror is a subgenre of horror fiction that emphasizes the cosmic horror of the unknown (and in some cases, unknowable) more than gore or other elements of shock, though these may still be present. – Wikipedia
