Ive been searching for awhile but I cant seem to find a book that fits what Im looking for.

Is there a book in print thats like an encyclopedia of Lovecraft and the various mythos' characters etc with illustrations on each one and their back stories?

TIA, Jonathan

This is probably the best place to start: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cthulhu_Mythos

Follow the external links as well.

Just so you know, the "official Mythos" extends well past what Lovecraft wrote and probably well past what he intended or imagined.

If you want to stick with Lovecraft only, just read the stories.

Never read it, but maybe the Encyclopedia Cthulhiana.

Looks like there's a copy out there in the intertubes for about $300... oh wait, someone else is selling one for $9.

Sounds like you're looking for a copy of the Necronomicon.



I'd stay the hell away personally.
