    Suppose that a Foundation type civilization encounters some non-Euclidean geometry from which enter Lovecraft's monstrous pantheon. Would such an advanced civilization be affected on the same basic level of sanity as one of Lovecraft's 1920-era protagonists?  Do you feel that the excuse that Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" essentially tackled the same style of story is a sufficient reason not to make Del Toro's "Mountains of Madness" adaptation? Iâ??m curious if you are aware of a Mexican 1959 horror film by Mario Bava entitled Caltiki, the Immortal Monster, I think that is about as Lovecraftian as any non-Lovecraft movie Iâ??ve ever seen. Has anyone figured out and listed which of Nicholas Roerich's paintings, which are so frequently mentioned in "At the Mountains of Madness", were accessible to HPL? Are we to believe the assertions of Satanist Winter Laake that when a young boy Lovecraft encountered a 'spirit guide' and that he denied this for fear of being labeled mentally ill like his father, and that Lovecraft met Aleister Crowley in New York City?   Is there a generally accepted Lovecraft canon?    Is there a concise document or website that effectively lists all the works tied to the Cthulhu Mythos?   Do you know if Lovecraft pioneered the horror trope of people unexpectedly wandering into a cursed town in the Shadow Over Innsmouth?
