Dream-Realms

Posted by Randi on Monday, October 15, 2018

What they want:
“There are so many persons who know what wonders are opened to them in the stories and visions of their youth; for when as children we listen and dream, we think but half-formed thoughts, and when as men we try to remember, we are dulled and proasic with the poison of life.” ― H.P. Lovecraft, Celepha├»s

An integral part of the writings of H.P. Lovecraft dealt with forays into, and results from explorations of, a dream realm. A frequent traveler to that realm, Randolph Carter, brought back many tales of his experiences – of the fantastic cities, the exotic peoples, and the terrible dangers. We want you to tell us more about those realms, but we want the stories to be true to the Lovecraft ideas. If you haven't already, we suggest you read or become familiar with at least a few of the following stories: Celephais, Hypnos, Ex Oblivione, The Dreams in the Witch House, The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath, The Silver Key, The White Ship, and Through the Gates of the Silver Key. These stories are all available to read for free at the H. P. Lovecraft Archive online.
