Daryl Gregory's novels inspire reflection and conversation, but above all else they are just different and so much fun. His new book, Harrison Squared is fresh and enjoyable, and proves that he's a writer to be reckoned with.

Funko's Cthulhu Pop! Vinyl already skirts the line between "D'aaaw" and "Aaah! Unspeakable Eldritch Horrors!" pretty well - but this variant from Entertainment Earth goes over the edge into full on creepiness. He glows in the dark, for christ's sake!
H.P. Lovecraft's work has some recurring themes: characters who teeter on the edge of insanity, tentacled Cthulhu, and all manner of alien horrors. But how do those tropes work when the ancient intelligence and its victim are just grabbing a cup of coffee?
Warpo's new line of Lovecraft-inspired action figures is a direct throwback to the era of blister packs, five points of articulation, and tiny plastic accessories. The creators talked to us about their dream of a Saturday morning animated series about Cthulhu, and showed off some killer concept art.
Chances are, you've read tons of stories in the Cthulhu Mythos — but "The Litany of Earth" by Ruthanna Emrys is still something special.

Dear Princess Cosmicism, today I learned a very important lesson about the fiendish nature of friendship. It drives the hordes to madness with an adorable gnashing of teeth and clashing of pastel hooves.
Sure, you can roll your layers of snowy precipitation into a stack of three balls topped with a top hat—or you can put all that white stuff to a more interesting use. Take your cue from these aliens, robots, and monsters when planning your next snow sculpture.
While astronomical art is my specialty, I can't do planets 24 hours a day. So sometimes I set that aside to do something to get my mind off Mars or Titan or Gliese 467b or whatever it is I have been sweating over. H.P. Lovecraft has always been one of my favorite authors, so a few months ago I started a series of…
Baby Cthulhu doesn't wait dreaming. He's bright-eyed, curly-tentacled, and ready for your squeeing worship.
