A steam yacht, known in Dunedin as an island trader with an evil reputation.

In the spring of 1925, intercepted the schooner Auckland at S. 49( 51', W. 128( 34', near the risen island of R'lyeh, and did battle to prevent them approaching the island. Boarded by Auckland crew, who were forced to kill all the ruthless but clumsy Alert crew members. The Alert crew proceeded forward and discovered risen R'lyeh, where several of them died. The two remaining crew members attempted to sail the Alert away; one (Johansen) survived long enough to be rescued at S. 34( 21', W. 152( 17' by the Vigilant, which towed Alert to Darling Harbor.

Alhazred, Abdul

Arab author of the Necronomicon. ". . .a mad poet of Sanaa, in Yemen, who is said to have flourished during the period of the Ommiade caliphs, circa 700 A. D. He visited the ruins of Babylon and the subterranean secrets of Memphis and spent ten years alone in the great southern desert of Arabia – the Roba el Khaliyeh or 'Empty Space' of the ancients – and 'Dahna' or 'Crimson' desert of the modern Arabs, which is held to be inhabited by protective evil spirits and monsters of death. . . In his last years Alhazred dwelt in Damascus, where the Necronomicon (Ai Azif) was written, and of his final death or disappearance (738 A. D.) many terrible and conflicting things are told. He is said by Ebn Khallikan (12th cent. biographer) to have been seized by an invisible monster in broad day-light and devoured horribly before a large number of fright-frozen witnesses. Of his madness many things are told. He claimed to have seen the fabulous Irem, or City of Pillars, and to have found beneath the ruins of a certain nameless desert town the shocking annals and secrets of a race older than mankind. He was only an indifferent Moslem, worshipping unknown entities whom he called Yog-Sothoth and Cthulhu." [HPL History 52-53]>

It is possible that Alhazred visited the "nameless desert town" referenced above only in dreams; for he is said to have dreamt of the Nameless City in Arabia on the night before he sang his famous couplet: "That is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons even death may die." [HPL Nameless 98-99, 103, 109]>

Ars Magna et Ultima

Better known as Ars Generalis Ultima or Ars Magna. A work by Raymond Lully, published in 1305. It provided a system of arguments to aid in converting Moslems to Christianity. ["Ramon Llull," at Wikipedia]

Joseph Curwen had a copy of Raymond Lully's Ars Magna et Ultima in Zetsner's edition. [HPL Case 121] "Zetsner's edition" was a one-volume Latin edition of several of Lully's works, published by Lazarus Zetzner in Strasbourg, 1598. The Zetsner edition includes related works by Giordano Bruno and Cornelius Agrippa, authors whose speculative or occult tendencies may have been of interest to Curwen. The John Hay Library at Brown University has a copy, which is cataloged under the abbreviated title Raymundii Lullii Opera ea quae ad adinuentam ab ipso artem vniuersalem ... pertinent : vt et in eandem quorundam interpretus scripti commentarij: quae omnia ... edita sunt : accessit index ... locupletissimus. (Thanks to John Merritt for sending me details about the Zetzner edition.)

Atlantis and Lost Lemuria

Short for The Story of Atlantis and the Lost Lemuria , by W. Scott-Elliot. A work on lost continents written by a Theosophist follower of Helene Blavatsky. It was originally two separate works, published in 1896 and 1904, and reprinted in a combined edition starting in 1925. [From a 1968 printing by the Theosophical Publishing House]. The online texts are available at the Internet Sacred Text Archive.

The book was cited in Professor Angell's notes on the Cthulhu cult. Perhaps Angell found the theme of sunken continents to be reminiscent of sunken R'lyeh [HPL Call 128].

Azathoth

A mindless but possibly all-powerful entity who lives outside the ordered universe, in the void at the center of all infinity. There he dwells in inconceivable, unlighted chambers beyond time, where no dreams can reach. He is known as the boundless daemon-sultan Azathoth, whose name no lips dare speak aloud. He blasphemes and bubbles amidst the beating of drums and the whine of accursed flutes. To this music dance awkwardly the mindless Other Gods, with their soul and messenger Nyarlathotep [HPL Kadath 308, 318, 399]. Nasht and Kaman-Thah warned Randolph Carter of the peril posed by Azathoth to any dreamers who try to venture from our dreamworld to one of the dreamworlds surrounding another planet [308]. The violet gas S'ngac warned Kuranes never to approach the central void where Azathoth gnaws hungrily in the dark [356].

Robert Blake thought of "the ancient legends of Ultimate Chaos, at whose centre sprawls the blind idiot god Azathoth, Lord of All Things, encircled by his flopping horde of mindless and amorphous dancers, and lulled by the thin monotonous piping of a daemoniac flute held in nameless paws" [Haunter 110]. The phrase "Lord of All Things" suggests Azathoth's supremacy among all deities. The impression is reinforced in the sonnet Azathoth , which refers to him as Lord of All [ Fungi XXII]. The sonnet also refers to "a cracked flute clutched in a monstrous paw, / Whence flow the aimless waves whose chance combining / Gives each frail cosmos its eternal law." It is not clear who is playing the flute; in conjunction with Blake's statement that Azathoth is "lulled" by a flute, it seems possible that some other entity plays the flute, and so influences Azathoth's dreams; thus "Here the Lord of All in darkness muttered / Things he had dreamed but could not understand." Azathoth's dreams perhaps then give rise to the various universes. On this theory, Nyarlathotep could be the puppet master who is really running the show, since he shows contempt for Azathoth: "'I am His Messenger,' the daemon said, / As in contempt he struck his Master's head."

Another interpretation would be that Azathoth dreams while playing the flute himself, and the flute causes his dreams to come to life in the form of various universes. In that case, Nyarlathotep is in the typical position of an underling who regards his boss as a moron.

Despite Azathoth's mindlessness, which you think would make him a futile object for prayer or worship, the daemon-sultan has his devotees. Keziah Mason tried to get Walter Gilman to meet the Black Man and go with them to the throne of Azathoth at the center of ultimate Chaos. Gilman, she said, must sign in his own blood the book of Azathoth and take a new secret name. Gilman refused because "he had seen the name 'Azathoth' in the Necronomicon , and knew it stood for a primal evil too horrible for description" [WitchHouse 272-273]. Later Gilman apparently signed the book and was taken to Azathoth, for he dimly recalled the drumming, flutes, and leaping shadows (presumably of the dancing Other Gods) [281-282]. Attempting to return from one of his transdimensional journeys, Gilman feared accidentally landing "in the spiral black vortices of that ultimate void of Chaos wherein reigns the mindless daemon-sultan Azathoth" [293].

Henry Wentworth Akeley mentioned Azathoth in a letter to Prof. Albert Wilmarth [Whisperer 223]. Akeley's recording of a conversation between a human and an Outer One outside a Vermont cave, on May Eve, mentioned "(tri)butes to Him in the Gulf, Azathoth, He of Whom Thou hast taught us marv(els)" [226]. The phrase seems to be part of a liturgy, suggesting that the Outer Ones are worshippers of Azathoth, along with other primal beings. The Outer One masquerading as Akeley told Wilmarth of "the monstrous nuclear chaos beyond angled space which the Necronomicon had mercifully cloaked under the name of Azathoth" [256]. Perhaps this suggests that "Azathoth" is a pseudonym, rather than the actual "name no lips dare speak aloud."

Capt.Lawton mentioned Azathoth in his ravings after visiting a mound near Binger, Oklahoma [Mound 103]. This suggests that the Old Ones of K'n-yan were aware of Azathoth, and perhaps also devotees of his.

While awaiting in fear for the Haunter of the Dark, Robert Blake prayed "Azathoth have mercy!" [Haunter 115].

George Rogers insulted Stephen Jones by calling him "Son of the dogs that howl in the maelstrom of Azathoth!" [Museum 234]. "Dogs" are not elsewhere mentioned in connection with Azathoth. One wonders if this could be a reference to the Hounds of Tindalos, but since Azathoth dwells beyond angled space, it seems there would be a deficiency of angles for the Hounds to move through.

Edward Pickman Derby wrote a collection of nightmare-lyrics called Azathoth and Other Horrors [Doorstep 277].

Azathoth is the title of one of HPL's short fragments, but Azathoth is not referenced in the text [HPL Azathoth 357].
