Father Jackey is looking a little less wizened here.
I gotta say, I love where this story is going. The Dreams in the Witch House was the first HPL-story I ever read, at the mature age of 10. I never looked at math quite the same way again.
Yeah! Cthulhu Mythos, Equation and Computing!
Are we making a step toward some history of the Black Chamber from The Laundry universe by Charles Stross?
GREAT SCOTT!! That’s just……I really wanna see where this is going. Also, I see Warren is familiar with the Amulet. That’s good, maybe He’ll expound on Pickman’s explanation of what it is.
Kill it? Don’t show Harley the scar on Orwin’s back. Complex spacetime geometry; so practiced it on Howard?
Suddenly, it all makes sense. I think I can guess how and why Lovecraft went missing and where he is now.
I eagerly await the next pages of unimaginable vistas of truth that will surely show the futility of my meagre attempts at comprehension.
Give us a hint willya! Just the salient points of the story?
This is a really well-done page.
Just a small spelling correction: It’s “rhythm”.
OK, I can buy that Lovecraft’s stories are also equations. Certainly he was wonderfully systematic in how he built some of them, carefully distinguishing between how the events happened & how the narrator stumbled into them for instance.
Could he have then built them using a story machine? Input variables here, get plot & strange devices out there? Something like http://www.scholastic.com/teachers/story-starters/fantasy-writing-prompts/?
There were indeed devices and books on that very subject, though aimed at a slightly older crowd than Scolastic’s site. From Wiki: “In an article originally published in 1935 and reprinted in 2002, Robert J. Hogan described a book-based device called the Plot Genie which consisted of three lists of 180 items each: murder victims in the first list, crime locations in the second list, and important clues in the third list. The item to use from each list was chosen by spinning a dial with 180 numbers on it.”
Maybe HPL had one with Eldritch tomes, types of insanity, and Old Ones.
