Yog-Sothoth knows the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the key and guardian of the gate. Past, present, future, all are one in Yog-Sothoth. He knows where the Old Ones broke through of old, and where They shall break through again. He knows where They have trod earth’s fields, and where They still tread them, and why no one can behold Them as They tread.
—H. P. Lovecraft, “The Dunwich Horror”
Source unknown (let me know and I’ll credit).
Yog-Sothoth knows all and sees all. To “please” this Outer God could bring knowledge of many things and glimpses of far flung realms of cosmic terror and technology. However, like most beings in the Mythos, to see it or learn too much about it is to court disaster.
Dunwich Horror: Audio
1940s radio dramatisation of the story, from the series Suspense, starring Ronald Colman as Henry Armitage. This version is a bit hammy but if you’re into the old black and white Boris Karloff & Lon Chaney Jr films, then this audio rendition should give you a suitable thrill.
