Today marks the day 120 years ago when H. P. Lovecraft was born. It's hard to imagine that when Lovecraft wrote the "Call of Cthlulhu" in 1926, he was closer in time to the Civil War than we today are to 1926. Yet the Cthulhu Mythos hardly seems dated at all. How much else from the 1920s can claim that?
