Lovecaftian Thing a Day No.166: Mysteries of the Worm
In day 2 of Chaosium Week, we present Robert Bloch's Mysteries of the Worm. This was the scond in the series of Chaosium's Cthulhu Mythos fiction line (the first being The Hastur Cycle). As with yesterday's offering, this was another key publication - bringing back into circulation as it did Bloch's otherwise very difficult to find (at least for us in the UK) collection of Mythos tales. Also of note is the erudite introduction and commentary to this and other volumes, provided by Robert M. Price who, to my mind, produced at the timr some outstanding academic analysis of the Lovecraftian fictional milieu.
