Book Description

Arc Dream Publishing is proud to present the first-ever ebook edition of the legendary Cthulhu Mythos Encyclopedia by Dan Harms.

"...some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age." --H.P. Lovecraft, 'The Call of Cthulhu'

That day is here. The Cthulhu Mythos Encyclopedia explains every mind-blasting facet of the Cthulhu Mythos envisioned by H.P. Lovecraft and expanded by countless horror writers and gamers in the decades since the master's death.

From "Abbith" to "Zylac," with in-depth stops along the way for the likes of "Azathoth" and "Yog-Sothoth," the Cthulhu Mythos Encyclopedia painstakingly pieces together disassociated knowledge of every last Thing Which Man Was Not Meant to Know.

And now it's digital, with a comprehensive linked table of contents and the built-in searchability of e-readers. You will go mad from revelation faster than ever before.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exactly What It Says December 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am unsure why the previous reviewer's screen didn't format it properly, it works on my iPad, Kindle, and Droid. It is a straightforward encyclopedia of H.P. Lovecraft and those who expanded on his mythos' creations. The writing is direct and concise. The only reason I did not give it five stars was due to the lack of hyperlinks when it tells you to reference another entry when a being has multiple aliases.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great resource September 27, 2013
By klempk
Format:Kindle Edition
I am writing this review in part as a response to the two negative reviews posted near the end of 2012. Perhaps the publisher has updated the files since these were posted, but I did not encounter the two problems noted. So:

1) There is indeed a Table of Contents, and it works well.

2) The formatting is just fine, and looks great on my Smartphone and computer. Font scaling works as expected.

I highly recommend this Kindle book. It is comprehensive and very handy to have in a portable, access-anywhere format.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not sure what those 1 star reviews are talking about... February 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
...but the formatting of the book looks perfectly fine on my Kindle Fire. No issues at all. This book continues to be a great resource for Lovecraft enthusiasts in getting your Mythos information quickly. This and Joshi's annotated Lovecraft are great for beginners looking for a way into his writing.
