THE OTHER GODS

27 Apr

Written in 1921 by H.P. Lovecraft, The Other Gods was published in the November 1933 issue of The Fantasy Fan magazine.

Barzai the Wise, a high priest and prophet greatly learned in the lore of the “gods of earth”, or Great Ones, attempts to scale the mountain of Hatheg-Kla in order to look upon their faces, accompanied by his young disciple Atal. Upon reaching the peak, Barzai at first seems overjoyed until he finds that the “gods of the earth” are not there, but rather the “other gods, the gods of the outer hells that guard the feeble gods of earth!” Atal flees and Barzai is never seen again.

enjoy!
