Reader's Thoughts:

The Cthulhu Mythos - one of the most imaginative, and frightening, horror scenarios ever. Lovecraft's style and the power of his Cthulu mythos leaves the tired old legion of vampire, undead, freddy, jason, chucky, zombie, etc clones for dead. Sure, his characters are flat and one-dimensional, but what does that matter if you are scared out of your pants? Although not directly relevant to Orion's Arm, Lovecraft's portrayal of an inhuman universe peopled by ancient brooding malevolent (and benevolent) superhuman powers conveys the sort of ambience that does not go astray. Check out also the delightful rpg adaptation (Cthulupunk if you will ;-)
