A book, discarded irretrievably close to the god-thing. Maybe when (s)he was summoned, and came, the book was dropped in fright and the wielder fled.

An unusually hideous and dangerous vision of this Great Old One or Outer God or whatever.

The one god that has female attributes, and yet has a male aspect as well.

I never wrote a mythos tale, and probably won't (nobody has ever captured HPL's essense, and mythos lore has become fan-fiction), but figure that when the Great Old Ones beget spawn on humans, it is through the medium of Shub-Niggurath.

Gruesomely original version of Shubby! Level of details is amazing, I just love the little book in the bottom, and the absence of cultists (gee, I wonder what happened to them). :)

Anyways, Instant :+fav:. :)

This is so horrifying that I love it! I hope you read this comment because your work is exactly the kind of thing for which I have been looking...

I am working on behalf of a theatre and entertainment company called Dread Falls Theatre. In August we are running an art exhibition in London based on the works of HP Lovecraft. I am very sure our audience would be interested in your work. If it's something you think you'd like do, please contact me to discuss it further. :)
