COSMIC HORROR STORY IDEA

CosmicHorror_Featured-e1565286942636

I am thinking of one day writing a novella or short story that revolves around cosmic horror. The most famous author of cosmic horror is H.P. Lovecraft, who wrote stories such as The Call of Cthulhu and At the Mountains of Madness. Lovecraft was essentially the founding father of the cosmic horror genre and his legacy has influenced writers and filmmakers for decades. Cosmic horror revolves around mankind’s all-consuming FEAR of the unknown, mankind’s insignificance in the fabric of the universe, and the fragility of the human mind. While most horror stories includes blood and guts, Lovecraftian stories included slime and tentacles. Most prominently of all is that cosmic horror and Lovecraftian stories featured mysterious monsters that were so horrifying that a person would go mad if they saw the creatures in their entirety. I have a cosmic horror story in mind that I think would make a good read. I shall tinker with it when my schedule opens up.

  1. What a great picture! Is this a drawing, or a painting, for such a story? I’m not familiar with the author, as I’ve not done any writing in this genre, but I think it’s a terrific photo prop. Good luck with your idea, Grady!
