Writing Non-Stale Mythos Tales

by | Dec 27, 2017 | Convention Panel


Cthulhu is a plush toy, a bobble-head, slippers and action figures. How can today’s writers escape this ‘normalization’ of a creature whose very existence is supposed to be mind-shattering? Is it even possible to write a new Mythos story that would have the same impact today that “The Call of Cthulhu” had back in 1926, without reverting to simple pastiche? Our panelists think so and have done it! Find out how in this discussion of why the Cthulhu Mythos is just as frightening today as it ever was.

Panelists: Alex Houstoun, Kij Johnson, Tom Lynch, Peter Rawlik, Darrell Schweitzer, Vincent O’Neil (Moderator)
