  1. Dear People from PPP,

    As a big fan of H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos, I enjoyed this story Immensely.
    I am not one of those “purists” as mentioned, I love Cthulhu stories by others just as much.
    Like “The Hounds of Tindalos” by F. Belknap-Long, and PPP No.15, by Robert Bloch. Great stuff! By the Way, I am the proud owner of a Dutch translation of a Bloch Collection of 33 short stories called “Yours Truly, Jack the Ripper”. I hope you’ll do more stories about that “Dark Tentacled Deity”. Anyway, thanks for all the great stories and warm regards from Holland.

  2. Roland – Ik heb ein kleiner nederlands… but I won’t try to answer you with it. 🙂

    I’m really glad you enjoyed the story – stay tuned for more Lovecraft and Price in the very near future.
