LLOIGOR

LLOIGOR
"Lloigor, Zhar and Ithaqua shall ride the spaces among the stars and shall ennoble those who are their followers, who are the Tcho-Tcho; Cthugha shall encompass his dominion from Fomalhaut; Tzathoggua shall come from N'kai..."
H.P. Lovecraft & August Derleth, The Lurker At the Threshold

"For the thing that crouched in the weird green dusk was a living mass of shuddering horror, as ghastly mountain of sensate, quivering flesh, whose tentacles, far-flung in the dim reaches of the subterranean cavern, emitted a strange humming sound, while from the depths of the creature's body came a weird and horrific ululation. Then I fell back into Fo-Lan's arms. my mouth opened to cry out, but I felt the doctor's firm hand clapped across my lips, and from a great distance I seemed to hear his voice.
"That is Lloigor!"'
August Dertleth & Mark Schorer, The Lair Of the Star Spawn

  1. Sexy...as usual! But: Thats the Great Old One, the twin of Zhar, isn't it? Not one of the race of the Lloigor?

  2. yes one of the Twin Obscenities....Lovecraft himself never wrote about the Lloigor as a species...just as a Great Old One and honestly that was in The Lurker At the Threshold so it was probably Derleth's doing. The Lloigor of Derleth's mythos was a Great Old One as well

  3. Yes. I looked into my books and the race of Lloigors was in "The Return of the Lloigor" from Colin Wilson.
