Llvecraftian Thing a Day No.335: Tentacles Across Time
I'm currently finishing a piece on Lovecraftian esotericism, and am about to revisit Colin Wilson's 'Tentacles Across Time' from this issue of Skoob Esoterica Review as one of my final pieces of research. As I recall, Wilson offers here a revised variant of the claim that Lovecraft was unconsciously channelling the Great Old Ones. Given Wilson's involvement with the spurios George Hay Necronomicon, it's unclear as to whether he meant this piece to be taken seriously - although given the stage he had reached in his career and thinking at this point in time, I suspect that he did.
