You may already know Jason Colavito for his book The Cult of Alien Gods: H.P. Lovecraft and Extraterrestrial Pop Culture, a skeptical look at the influence of the Cthulhu mythos on the development of ancient alien theories. (“…as some ancient alien theorists believe.” – Seriously. Take a shot every time they say that on the series. You’ll be stone drunk in 20 minutes.)
Jason Colavito’s Cthulhu in World Mythology is a what-if work of speculative history that proposes that H.P. Lovecraft’s ancient god Cthulhu is real, and that humanity has worshiped him since the dawn of time.
Colavito discussed the surprising inspiration behind his book and the intersection between real-world mythology and Lovecraft’s mythos.
