More Lore from the Mythos II

October 14, 2020


Once again, I made it into More Lore from the Mythos from Fractured Mind Pulbishing. When Lovecraft created his mythology his aim, much like Tolkien’s, was to create a rich tapestry that others could base their own tales in. 100 years later, his work is still going strong.

Falling Awake
