Cthulhu in World Mythology
In lieu of a blog post today, I invite everyone to check out my forthcoming book Cthulhu in World Mythology, which now has an official publication date. My Lovecraftian parody of Chariots of the Gods and Ancient Aliens will be out in September from Atomic Overmind Press. I have a bunch of content up for the book, including an except, photo essay, and collection of Necronomicon fragments. I'll be adding more content as publication approaches!

There is always the risk that someone will take it seriously. I certainly hope the fact that I am basing the book on *fictional* Lovecraft stories would clue them in that it isn't true. Also, classifying it as "fiction" should also be a hint. In the end, though, there isn't much I can do if someone wants to take it seriously. I wonder how Robert Price managed the trick when he published the "Critical Commentary on the Necronomicon" (1988), which inspired me to write my book.
I mentioned that because I have already seen, linked with the case of the Bosnian "pyramids", someone using the Necronomicon (along with the Bible, the Quran and the Mahabharata) as a *source* for his ancient aliens theory... (see http://irna.lautre.net/Hijacking-an-archaeological.html#nb4 note 4)

So I am guessing the book is out right?
