How Cthulhu Transcended its Creator

H.P. Lovecraft was a master of cosmic horror, the kind that stimulates your most primal fears and makes you question reality and the meaning of it all.

Since Lovecraft died in 1937, his creation has come to mean so much more than the novels contain. (via Geeks Are Sexy)
