That Old-Time Religion


As my son gets older, I seek more and more ways to inculcate him with my core values, to teach him to walk in my footsteps, to see the world as I do….well, not an invaluable tool for just that has been published. Yes, Baby’s First Mythos is here to teach junior how we did things before all these disgusting humans crawled out of our beautiful ooze and set up shop.

I heard about this gem a few years ago, and now it is my privilage to infect…umm..introduce all of you to it.

The book can be ordered from HERE…do it now. NOWWWWWWWWWW…..GRUSHALAGGGHHHHhhhhhhhh.

Baby’s First Mythos

Written by C.J. Henderson and illustrated by Erica Henderson

Spawned from the mind of horror king and Origins award winner, C.J. Henderson, (“The Things That Are Not There,” “Tales of Inspector Legrasse”) this book is a fun-filled must for every Lovecraftian everywhere. Lavishly illustrated with dozens of all new, highly detailed pieces by Erica Henderson, this is one of those rare instant classics that everyone is simply going to have to have on their shelf. It will also blast your child’s soul as you teach them their ABCs and 123s – Mythos style!


This book was published first as a 32 page softback with saddle stitching and only contained A-Z (though it was missing the letter “X” – for sanity’s sake).

The new version is a thick hardcover, reminding one of a Golden Book-type book. It contains all the letters of the alphabet as well as the numbers 1 through 0 and a short rhyming section.

A great novelty item for Cthulhu/Lovecraft fans and those who love Edward Gorey’s, The Gashlycrumb Tinies.

  1. That’s right up there with Shel Silverstein’s “ABZ book”!

  2. You may also want to consider a Plush Necronimicon for the lad.

  3. They restored X?

    What were they *thinking*?!?
