Lovecraftian Thing a Day No.264: The Portals
Edward Andrew Mann's The Portals seems to be a lesser-known Lovecraftian novel, and is notable as an early attempt to marry the Cthulhu Mythos with the UFO phenomenon via John Keel. Other than that, there's not much I have to say about it - I powered through the book I didn't much like it, and can't really remember that much else about the story. Published in 1974, I suppose it also constitutes a precursor to the much better Delta Green take on the Mythos-UFO connection (and, without going into details, there are some very general similarities between The Portals and the Delta Green universe).
