  Carcosa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Carcosa is a fictional city in the Ambrose Bierce short story "An Inhabitant of Carcosa" (1891).
The city of Carcosa is said to be the home of the god Hastur, although it should be noted that this conjecture (along with the concept of Hastur as a Great Old One) began not with Chambers or Lovecraft but with the fiction of August Derleth.
Carcosa Press was a specialty publishing firm formed by David Drake, Karl Edward Wagner, and Jim Groce who were concerned that Arkham House would cease publication after the death of its founder, August Derleth.
