Really Nice and Impressive new drawing Herr SorcererWizard Hat, complete with Wizard Fire! Poof! !
Yes, William Hope Hodgson is a good suggestion before Lovecraft!
Yours!

Thanks my friend! I'm a big fan of Hodgson especially his lesser known work like "The Boats of Glenn Carrig" and his short sea monster tales.

At the bottom of the the pacific ocean if you believe in that sort of thing:) James Churchward originated the legend in his 1926 book "The Lost Continent of Mu".
Lovecraft uses Mu as the home of Ghatanothoa in "Out of the Aeons" and Robert E. Howard's unfinished story "Isle of the Eons" describes his version of Mu in detail. Howard also mentions Mu in a couple of Kull stories but there are no descriptions.

What are kull stories? These things are fascinating to me. If you ever played Warcraft, you might know of the Draenei who turned rogue. Basically, a bunch of magical beings from another world who are generated by inferior life forms as Gods. The corrupt Draenei may be depicted with tentacles in place of arms and they are very hostile.

 The stories of Kull King of Atlantis are some of the first sword and sorcery tales created by Robert E. Howard in 1929. Howard was a correspondent to H.P. Lovecraft and one of the first to begin adapting the Cthulhu Mythos into his stories, Lovecraft also used some of Howard's creations in his later stories creating a sort of "shared world". Many of their stories are online and available to read as public domain, try them out you may enjoy them.

Thanks for the recommendation. Do you follow any other stories of similar mythical vibes? How did Mr. Lovecraft meet Robert E. Howard?

Clark Ashton Smith is also a vital part of the early Cthulhu Mythos. Writers before Lovecraft I would suggest Lord Dunsany and William Hope Hodgson. From my understanding Lovecraft and Howard met by being contributors to Weird Tales magazine, they exchanged many letters but never met in person.

Thanks for the information Mr Zarono, you have been a fount or knowledge. I will read more and perhaps we can discuss this subject further once I have more information on the topic.

By the way, is there a story behind your name? Or is Zarono truly your name?

I hope you enjoy reading them. No story behind my username, it's just one I've used for a while.
