It's that special time of year again, folks and cultists. What would YOU do, should you receive a Green and Red set of Slippers, resplendent with tentacles and warding signs ???

The Cthulhu Lovecraftian created is, in my opinion, completely separate from the Cthulhu that dominates popular culture. Some of it might have once produced a wry smile but these days its ubitiquousness is just tiresome.

When everybody knows everything about vampires, and zombies are just the usual threat in a game then why wouldn't Cthulhu be degraded to some kind of Godzilla? Because the solid core of Lovecraft readers wants the horror and not the cheap thrill, and I think that we're still around when the others grown tired of Cthulhu-slippers. Do I sound a bit fanatic about it? I'm sorry, not my intention.

It's as inevitable as cuddly Darth Vaders, daleks etc, all popular villains tend to fall into the recycling machinery. If it does a little to spread the word, then it's doing some good.

 

I don't wear slippers anyway.
