“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.” -H. P. Lovecraft.
Supernatural Horror in Literature A collection of H.P. Lovecraft-inspired tales of some of the best Dark Moon Press authors. The often found theme in Lovecraft’s work is the complete irrelevance of mankind in the face of the cosmic terrors lurking at the outskirts of our universe. Lovecraft made frequent reference to the “Great Old Ones”: a race of ancient, powerful deities from space who once ruled the Earth and who are in a deathlike slumber in the depths of the ocean. This was first established in The Call of Cthulhu, in which the minds of the human characters deteriorated when afforded a glimpse of what exists outside their perceived reality.
