Is that the Cthulhu of H. P. Lovecraft fame?

Well, I don't know.

It must have been some 35 years ago when I read some books of HPL. I remember that
some other writers of this genre also used Cthulhu (and many other 'indescribable horrors').

Since then I forgot about HPL, until I saw your writing. Do some people still read his books nowadays?

Lovecraft books appear to be doing well on amazon.
