If a trope name is redlinked, don't just unlink it; either find the correct name, or remove it. Trope lists should not include examples of non-existant tropes. (In this case, the trope never made it out of ykttw, so it should not be listed.)
* Theory Before Phenomenon: "Eloi Eloi Lama Sabachthani", "The Derelict"

Renamed some tropes.
* DamselInDistress: As well as the occasional DamselOutOfDistress.

* DistressedDamsel: As well as the occasional BadassDamsel

* RatedMForManly: A large chunk of his output consisted of stories best classified as "Action-Horror" rather than simply "Horror"; these stories typically featured small groups of men (often experienced sailors with a fatherly, BadAss leader) who faced off against {{Eldritch Abomination}}s (or, in the case of ''The House on the Borderland'', it's just ''one'' man (and his faithful dog) who faces off against the horrors). Even in the yarns where they didn't win (or died), they sure didn't go down without a fight.

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Different stories occupied different parts of the scale, with ''The Boats of the Glen Carrig'' being far on the idealism side and ''The House on the Borderland'' (which was a precursor to the CosmicHorrorStory) being as far on the cynicism side as a work of fiction can be. ''The Night Land'' and most of his other stories fall somewhere between the extremes of these two novels.
