yock's Lovecraftathon: Azathoth

This is incredibly short, but I rather like it. It's the tale of someone living in the grimness of the modern world, who looks up to the stars, and dreams of other places. And his wish comes true. It's rather a lovely combination of a grim, real life introduction crossed with the interstellar sci-fi of Lovecraft and the feeling of his Dreamlands stories. Really rather nice, and an extremely quick read. It also feels very close to Lovecraft's own situation.

 

Checking Wikipedia I see that it was the beginning of a never finished novel. But though what we have is obviously incomplete, it still works as a piece of literature I think. I wish we could have read more of course.
