My essay “H. P. Lovecraft & the Elder Sign” will be published shortly in an upcoming special issue of New Dawn magazine, Vol. 11, No. 4.
“H. P. Lovecraft & the Elder Sign” is a scholarly study of Lovecraft’s Elder Sign talisman.
The Elder Sign is a powerful repository of energy used by magickal practitioners for protection against the evil power of the Great Old Ones, a race of extra-terrestrial entities that inhabit alternate dimensions outside of space & time.
Lovecraft’s disciple August Derleth created his own version of the Elder Sign which is commonly believed to be based on the five-pointed pentagram, a religious & Wiccan icon. In my essay, I debunk that myth and show that Derleth derived his Elder Sign from Lovecraft’s fictional masterpieces “At the Mountains of Madness” & “The Shadow Over Innsmouth.”
