What is your favorite Cosmic Horror story?

If we go lovecraft I am partial to “The Shadow Over Innsmouth.” It’s one of the stories of Lovecraft where the character has a “front row seat” as it were to the strange things going on (as opposed to researching them or viewing them from a distance for most of the story.) I also feel like the ending deserves a sequel.

Outside of Lovecraft the book “Meddling Kids” has some fun tongue-and-cheek references to Lovecraft. Highly recommend.

Although its not cosmic horror its H.P lovecraft and is a few facts about arthur jerym and his family, i also like the hound and its references to the necronomicon.

Recently read Palladium at Night by Christopher Slatsky and The Cipher by Kathe Koja, which were both excellent and refreshing non-Lovecraft cosmic horror.

By Lovecraft I would say "The Color out of space" and in non-Lovecraftian... I would say the serie of podcast "The Magnus Archive", there is something unknowable and beyond us that leaks out from every story and the overall narrative which is chilling and so interesting ! I'm only at season 2 so I don't know yet where it is heading thou
