A book I have been reading.

One of the feature stories of the Cthulhu Mythos, Lovecraft's 'The Call of Cthulhu' is a harrowing tale of the weakness of the human mind when confronted by powers and intelligences from beyond our world.

A manuscript is found amongst the papers of a deceased professor's estate, including pamphlets, newspaper clippings, and a strange statuette, all pointing to the same horrific truth - the return of the Dark God Cthulhu and his corpse-city of Rlyeh.
Furthering the research of the professor, the narrator is taken on a journey across the world, as he discovers first-hand the fate that awaits all those who oppose the ancient cult devoted to the liberation of the monstrous being, that yearns to walk the Earth once more, and sway all mankind to its will,
And though the aethereal beast of the deep was forced back long enough for it to sink again with the ruins of its nightmarish and impossible city, it is not beaten. Cthulhu lies in wait only for the stars to align.

'That is not dead which can eternal lie, And with strange aeons even death may die.'
