Upon closer inspection, he's definitely not from…

Miskatonic Monday - Interview with Atari Chaffin, creator of the Cthulhu Tiki

Lights out, everybody.

On Miskatonic Mondays, we celebrate the "weird" fiction of HP Lovecraft and the genre of otherworldly horror it spawned.

A few weeks ago, we threw our gaze upon The Horror In Clay, a Cthulhu Cult-inspired tiki from Jonathan "Atari" Chaffin. Since then, it's been blowing other Kickstart projects out of the water. Whether the world has suddenly succumbed to tiki-madness or the Cult supports their own, I'll never know. However, I…

Miskatonic Monday - Book review of "Black Wings of Cthulhu"

Lights out, everybody.

On Miskatonic Mondays, we celebrate the "weird" fiction of HP Lovecraft and the genre of otherworldly horror it spawned.

Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937) heavily influenced a generation of horror authors including Stephen King and Robert Bloch, but today's genre fans are far less acquainted with his work. (Which is understandable––Lovecraft's fiction has always seemed like something you study rather than something you read.) Hitting American…

Miskatonic Monday - Cthulhu Christmas Tree

A very Lovecraft Christmas!

Faced with the realisation that we suddenly had room enough to put up our own Christmas tree, I was initially at a loss when considering how to decorate it. We have no ornaments and the idea of shopping for them made me drowsy. I can’t remember what first brought to mind the image of a tree covered in tentacles (perhaps it’s best not to ask), but as soon as I envisioned it I couldn’t let go of the idea.…
