I wonder how much Lovecraft was influenced by writings like this one. Creatures like 'Tsatoghua' and 'Azathoth' might be inspired by the depiction of 'Bael', 'Adramelech' and the likes.

Oh and by the way, with 'Necronomicon' you mean this this one [0]? I have one as paperback (I didn't even realized Hardcovers existed, up until now). Giger was always one of my favourite painters. I bet in a couple of decades, people will wonder about his images as we are wondering about Plancys Dictionnaire now.
