The searing summer days we have spent together at Vacation Necronomicon School are quickly coming to a close — though there seems no end in sight to the heat itself, or the horror of forbidden knowledge.
I designed our curriculum with the procrastinator in mind — so if you’ve been dragging your feet on your final composition, now is your chance to attain completion.
Today’s reading is an essay on the current popularity of the cephalopod from H+ Magazine, and though we’ve covered most of its material already in our discussion of Cthulhu, I still felt it was a worthwhile read as it ranges widely in its analysis. There is no official writing assignment today (beyond your final composition), though you may report your opinion on any aspect of this essay in the comments, as usual.
