This depicts H.P. Lovecraft whose Cthulhu mythos inspired generations of horror litterature and pop culture. His work was mainly published as short stories in small pulp magazines and was almost completely lost after his death. It’s only because of a small group of dedicated fans that we have his rich mythological tales of indescribable horror.
