There was chanting in the air that night

Scary: I have defended Abba's "Fernando" as the only product of Western culture to fully appreciate the failure of political revolution, and the appeal of having a go regardless, since Georges Bataille did so in his introduction to "The Accursed Share" (some alcohol may have been involved).

Scarier: I am prepared to quibble about the pronunciation of fictional alien names which cannot be pronounced with human organs of speech.

Scariest: The unspeakable genius of "Do you hear the pipes, Cthulhu?"

There was chanting in the air that night
The stars were right, Cthulhu!
You were dreaming of your destiny
Beneath the sea, Cthulhu!
Though the Elder Gods have cast you down
Have no regret
As the Al-Azif has prophesized, R'lyeh will rise, Cthulhu!

(with a shout out to fellow cultist, Andrew Ian Dodge)

Thanks for the mention mate. It just so happens I just finished a new tale in my Sages of Wales series.
