Just a thought...
This is a fascinating idea, but I don't want to apply it to my shadowy things because I actually don't
ever want to explain what they are -- it would spoil their mystique. But this is an excellent germ of a story idea! It could apply to so many Lovecraftian things. I actually think my wee things owe more to Machen than to Lovecraft. The story is now at 5,000 words and I am soon to bring on Nyarlathotep as a character, whut has me a bit nervous, it has to be exactly right
and atmospheric to ye core. I hope to spend most of the day writing, or trying to write, or thinking about writing as I continue to study "The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath." Then I have dinner with S. T. Joshi, and if I feel dinner is ye place to grill him about ye nature of ye Crawling Chaos, I shall do so....
