Not (OP) but will make a point regardless

>it's so creepy and there are scary images of octopuses, it's so Lovecraftian

This frustrates fans of of H.P. Lovecraft as it overlooks the tone and themes of his work in favour of glorifying the pulpy, less significant ideas, such as vague descriptions of giant space monsters.

Ligotti is virtually unknown.

The term is 'Thomist' you dilettante

>>7559681
So you have no problem with the term "Lovecraftian", you have a problem with people using the incorrect term to describe something.

It doesn't really bother me as I've only read a few of his stories and never really got too excited about them, have a friend who is driven mad by people falsely using "Lovecraftian" though yes.
