The Call of Cthulhu

“The Call of Cthulhu” is one of H. P. Lovecraft's best-known short stories. Written in the summer of 1926, it was first published in Weird Tales, February 1928. It is the only story written by Lovecraft in which the extraterrestrial entity Cthulhu himself makes a major appearance.It is written in a documentary style, with three independent narratives linked together by the device of a narrator discovering notes left by a deceased relative. The narrator pieces together the whole truth and disturbing significance of the information he possesses, illustrating the story's first line: “The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity; and it was not meant that we should voyage far.”

Not sorry that I picked this one up. My body will hate me for a general lack of rest these next couple of days, but my mind is pleased. Lovecraft is brilliant and horrific. I expected a story of a monster, but instead found a mystery of the deep, of the stars and of man's ability to test the waters of madness.

It's easy to see how Stephen King got his inspiration from this book in some aspects. The Call of Cthulhu, a short story by H.P. Lovecraft often published today as a novella in various formats, is a bizarre mixture of unsettling science fiction and occult intrigue.

The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.
