Lovecraftian Thing A Day No.73: Balowe's Guide to Extraterrestrials

Barlowe's Guide to Extraterrestrials proved to be one of the earliest fixtures in my collection of things Lovecraftian - the copy pictured here is the very same one I picked up in 1979. The book is, in fact, only minimally Lovecraftian to the extent that it only contains one entry from the Cthulhu Mythos, regarding the Old Ones/Elder Things of Antarctica. Even so, this was yet another volume that proved influential in inducting my younger self into the world of weird fiction.
