Linda from Randolph reminds us of the macabre mythos associated with “eldritch”
I was rather surprised a couple of weeks ago to hear the word “eldritch” used in one of the bluffing rounds. It is a familiar word to me, immediately bringing to mind H.P. Lovecraft and his Cthulhu mythos which was quite popular (quite a while ago, I guess) and frequently described as “eldritch”. Ah, macabre tales of unearthly doings along the misty Miskatonic River! I always thought that anyone who had immersed themselves in Poe and his ilk would surely come across Lovecraft and his eldritch stories eventually.
