When HP Lovecraft wrote his fictional tales of the Cthulhu Mythos, he was tapping into a deep current of antediluvian wisdom. As Tracy R. Twyman demonstrates in this exhaustive examination of Lovecraft stories, as well as derivative works (including the modern ‘Necronomicon’), the Cthulhu cycle reflects an instinctual understanding of the way ancient man remembered the gods of a previous aeon. These fictional rulers of the imaginary sunken kingdom of R’lyeh echo remarkably the mythologies of real-world cultures from our past. In particular, we recognize the influence of the Annunaki gods of the ancient Sumerians, the kings of fabled Atlantis, and stories of the hollow Earth, as well as the giants of Genesis Chapter 6. Does this indicate that Lovecraft had a deep-seated genetic awareness of a real race of beings from beyond space and time who one day ruled this Earth, and who may someday awaken from their slumber to rule again? This book is a must for anyone who considers themselves a serious student of Lovecraft, the Cthulhu Mythos, the Necronomicon, and Sumerian mythology.
