"In his house at R'lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming."

In honor of my favorite month, October, and my favorite holiday, Halloween, a few words from the master, H.P. Lovecraft.

Quotes for the day:

"I now felt gnawing at my vitals that dark terror which will never leave me till I, too, am at rest; 'accidentally' or otherwise."
-from "The Call of Cthulhu"

"It is a mistake to fancy that horror is associated inextricably with darkness, silence, and solitude. I found it in the glare of mid-afternoon, in the clangour of a metropolis, and in the teeming midst of a shabby and commonplace rooming-house with a prosaic landlady and two stalwart men by my side."
-from "Cool Air"

And a favorite:

"Men of broader intellect know that there is no sharp distinction betwixt the real and the unreal..."
-from "The Tomb"
