Lovecraftian Thing a Day No.99: Idol of Yog Sothoth.
This strange idol - along with a mysterious manuscript - was sent to me anonymously a few months ago. The manuscript purports to be a translation of episodes from a hitherto unknown autobiographical work by the infamous sorcerer and author of the Necronomicon, Abd Al-Azrad, and describes this very object (which is composed of some kind of metallic resin material) as an representation of the Lurker at the Threshold, Yog Sothoth. Like many other items in my collection, this displays some very curious properties - the foremost of which being that any small items placed in close proximity to it disappear unaccountably. Needless to say, after losing a few choice pieces as a result, the idol has since been displayed apart from the rest of my collection.
