He at no time fully described this object, but occasional frantic words, as repeated by Dr. There were rhf of a hidden lake unglimpsed by mortal sight, in which dwelt a huge, formless white polypous thing with luminous eyes; and squatters whispered that bat-winged devils flew up out of caverns in inner earth to worship it at midnight.

My uncle, it seems, had quickly instituted a prodigiously far-flung body of inquiries amongst nearly all the friends whom he could question without impertinence, asking for nightly reports of their dreams, and the dates of any notable visions for some time past.
Gruselkabinett 114/115 – Der Ruf des Cthulhu
Would you like to tell us about a lower price? With him he bore the subject of his visit, a grotesque, repulsive, dwr apparently very ancient stone statuette whose origin he was at a loss to determine. It was voodoo, apparently, but voodoo of dr more terrible sort than they had ever known; and some of their women and children had disappeared since the malevolent tom-tom had begun its incessant beating far within the black haunted woods where no dweller ventured.
It represented a monster of vaguely anthropoid outline, but with an octopus-like head whose face was a mass of feelers, a scaly, rubbery-looking body, prodigious claws on hind and fore feet, and long, narrow wings behind.
“The Call of Cthulhu” by H. P. Lovecraft
At the end of the passable road they alighted, and for miles splashed on in silence through the terrible cypress woods where day never came. Wilcox ctgulhu a precocious youth of known genius but great eccentricity, and had from childhood excited attention through the strange stories and odd dreams he was in the habit of relating.
On the contrary, his wish for enlightenment was prompted by purely professional considerations. All traces of strange dreaming had vanished with his recovery, and my uncle kept no record of his night-thoughts after a week of pointless and irrelevant accounts of thoroughly ruc visions.
All of these, however, bore out the notes in full.
No recognised school of sculpture had animated this terrible object, yet centuries and even thousands of years seemed recorded in its dim and greenish surface of unplaceable stone. Voodoo orgies multiply in Hayti, and African outposts report ominous mutterings. The statuette, idol, fetish, or whatever it was, had been captured some months before in the wooded swamps south of New Orleans during a raid on a supposed voodoo meeting; and so singular and hideous were the rites connected with it, that the police could not but realise that they had stumbled on a dark cult totally unknown to them, and infinitely more diabolic than even the blackest of the African voodoo circles.

English Choose a language for shopping. There had been aeons when other Things ruled on the earth, and They had had great cities. The muffled beat of tom-toms was now faintly audible far, far ahead; and a curdling shriek came at infrequent intervals when the wind shifted. The press cuttings, as I have intimated, touched on urf of panic, mania, and eccentricity during the given period.
Actually, the horrified pause of the men was of comparatively brief duration. On this now leaped and twisted a more indescribable horde of human abnormality than any but a Sime or an Angarola could paint.
The bas-relief was a rough rectangle less than an inch thick and about five by six inches in area; obviously of modern origin. Thanks for telling us about the problem. A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque and scaly body with rudimentary wings; but it was the general outline of the whole which made it most shockingly frightful.
That glimpse, like all dread glimpses of truth, flashed out from an accidental piecing together of separated things—in this case an old newspaper item and the notes of a dead professor. I’d like to read this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle?
Michael Dietrich res it really liked it Jul 23, It had been locked, and I did not find the key till it occurred to me to examine the personal ring which the professor carried always in his pocket.
Lovecraft has developed a cult following for his Cthulhu Mythos, a series of loosely interconnected fictions featuring a pantheon of human-nullifying entities, as well as the Necronomicon, a fictional grimoire of magical rites and forbidden lore.
He indeed went so far as to hint of the faint beating of great wings, and of a glimpse of shining eyes and a mountainous white bulk beyond the remotest trees—but I suppose he had been hearing too much native superstition.
They knew all that was occurring in the universe, but Their mode of speech was transmitted thought. Now and then the less organised ululation would cease, and from what seemed a well-drilled chorus of hoarse voices would rise in sing-song chant that hideous phrase or ritual: They had shape—for did not this star-fashioned image prove it?
Degraded and ignorant as they were, the creatures held with surprising consistency to the central idea of their loathsome faith. It was nightmare itself, and to see it was to die.
