Cthulhu Rising by jasonjuta Cthulhu Rising by jasonjuta
If I say that my somewhat extravagant imagination yielded simultaneous pictures of an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature, I shall not be unfaithful to the spirit of the thing. A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque and scaly body with rudimentary wings... 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. This thing, which seemed instinct with a fearsome and unnatural malignancy, was of a somewhat bloated corpulence..." ~ H.P. Lovecraft, "The Call of Cthulhu"

Hey - Here's a Good One - Guess if this Paragrab is a Poe-graph or a Love-craft ( E.A. Poe or H.P.L. ) :

'' When I look around me, I feel ashamed of my former apprehension. If I trembled at the blast which hitherto attended us, shall I not stand aghast at a warring of wind and ocean, to convey any idea of which, the words tornado and simoon are trivial and ineffective? All in the immediate vicinity of the ship, is the blackness of eternal night, and a chaos of formless water; but, about a league on either side of us, may be seen, indistinctly and at intervals, stupendous ramparts of ice, towering away into the desolate sky, and looking like the walls of the universe. ''

Poe or Lovecraft?

I'd say it is Poe when it comes to the mood that is represented there, but the writing style rather reminds me of Lovecraft! I can't tell!
