This Christmas... READ Neil Gaiman's "I, Cthulhu"

Posted by The Daily Zombies Thursday, December 25, 2014

This Christmas, if you find yourself with nothing better to do, learn the darkly humorous origins of The Great Old One by checking out Neil Gaiman's "I, Cthulhu", a quiet Christmas tradition in the offices. 

And why should you explore the dark and deliriously humorous origins of Cthulhu, the iconic evil deity created by the master of horror himself, H. P. Lovecraft back in 1928, on Christmas Day? Perhaps for the same reason why you are here down the undead rabbit hole at The Daily Zombies on this day originally marking the annual Christ's Mass to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ (and look where we are now).

Anyway, we happened to stumbled upon this on this very day via Neil Gaiman himself: "The fuzzy Christmas tradition is, I just learned, reading this story..."

Apparently, the reading of Neil Gaiman's original short story, "I, Cthulhu, or, What’s A Tentacle-Faced Thing Like Me Doing In A Sunken City Like This (Latitude 47° 9’ S, Longitude 126° 43’ W)?" is a quiet Christmas tradition for the folks at, a site celebrating science fiction and fantasy. For those who have previously missed out this hugely entertaining prose by the acclaimed writer, this is a prefect way to kill your time on Christmas Day. If you have read it, just re-read it again.

Head over to the page to read the short story.

And from us here at The Daily Zombies, we wish you a... Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
