Come on up.
Prophet of the mundane-sublime.
Fall into the world.
Eagle and Magnolia.
Getting lost sitting on a bench.
Portals in the distance.
And on and on.
Under the Bridge.
Lovecraftian entity from one angle turns out to be giant cock from another.
(Which makes me wonder.)
Circles within circles.
Take the road leading out.
Constant standoff between the mundane and the sublime.
I knew I was on the right way.
Another illuminati message.
Square root of minus one.
Sinister assembly in an antique shop window (note the jade owl).
My phone camera’s uncanny face recognition.
Not quite griffins. (Hounds of Tindalos?)
Definitely entering other worlds.
Which explains everything.
This too (next door).
Through a gap in the fence.
Not much to see. (As above… not so below.)
Tunnel into another world.
My essay “Sympathy for the Shoggoth” is now up on Infinite Earths! It’s based on a talk I gave at last year’s Weird Council Conference at Birkbeck and now features a lot of additional material as well as awesome illustrations by John Coulthart, Abigail Larson, K.L. Turner, and Nicholas Kole. (Thank you for letting me use them!)
Teaser illustration above: “Shoggoth” by K.L. Turner.
That’s at Le Schnurrbart. (If you click the picture, you can see that it even says “ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn” underneath.)
I know where I’m going to have my next drink.
