 Scriptorium - H.P. Lovecraft
This statement – emphasizing the fundamental amorality of his fictional cosmos – was made in conjunction with the resubmittal of "The Call of Cthulhu" (1926) to Weird Tales; and there can hardly be a doubt that that tale marks a watershed in Lovecraft's work, although perhaps not exactly in the way many think.
To be sure, it marks the debut of Lovecraft's convoluted pseudomythology, dubbed by August Derleth the "Cthulhu Mythos"; but in truth it reveals that Lovecraft has taken not merely the world but the cosmos for his backdrop.
This essay presents a close reading of Lovecraft's seminal story “The Call of Cthulhu.” It focuses on the link drawn between tropes of madness and tropes of the apocalyptic, and examines Lovecraft’s use of textuality and intertextuality.

 HPLA - The Cthulhu Mythos
The “Cthulhu Mythos” is a name given to the superficial elements of Lovecraft’s fiction: the extraterrestrial “gods,” the magical grimoires, and the fictional New England towns.
However, Lovecraft never used the term “Cthulhu Mythos,” on rare occasions referring to this series of connected stories as his “Arkham cycle.” The term “Cthulhu Mythos” was probably coined by August Derleth (or perhaps Clark Ashton Smith) after Lovecraft’s death.
These superficial elements have been used by a multitude of writers, several of them members of the “Lovecraft Circle.” The “mythos” has so captured the imaginations of people that it is perhaps better known (and more widely read) than Lovecraft’s own work.

 Oh, the Horror | Film | The Stranger, Seattle's Only Newspaper
Gildark and Cogswell explained how the "latitude of the horror genre" and the "huge metaphors" that other horror films have exploited will allow the film to take on even broader themes, from suburban sprawl to free-floating anxiety about politics in this country.
Cthulhu is the first feature film for both filmmakers, who have spent the last decade pursuing vastly different kinds of projects.
Cogswell is best known for his participation in local politics, from spearheading the original monorail initiative to a failed run for Seattle City Council in 2001, but he's also published poetry and is currently a writer in residence with Richard Hugo House.
