"In his house at R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming..." - English translation of Aklo verse

This article is written on a topic within the Greater Cthulhu Mythos based on information from works in the Mythos. By default, all information is to be assumed to derive from the Lovecraft Myth Cycle unless otherwise marked.

*The information in this article or section is based on sources in the Derleth Cthulhu Mythos, and not based on H.P. Lovecraft's works directly.


The Fisherman at Falcon Point is a short story first published in the Arkham House volume The Shuttered Room And Other Pieces (1959). One of the "Posthumous Collaborations" by August Derleth. Based on Lovecraft's Commonplace Book entry: “Fisherman casts his net into the sea by moonlight—what he finds.”

Everything else in the composition was under Derleth's control. It may also be influenced by traditional mermaid/selkie legends.
