Authors are people who life off their ability to express facts, fictions and feelings in written words. Some authors are respected people who's works get fancy prizes and are red all over the world. Most live quite ordinary lifes....and then there are those that struggles to get anything printed and at best get their works published in pulp magazines. To get an edge in the literary word one might have to seek stories, inspirations in different environments. The typical CoC author is often in the lower strata literary world and they do have nasty habit to end up confronting the very freakish fantasies they intend to write about. What started as a pursuit of inspiration might end with something that seems to be taken out of the Weird Tales magazine.
