Added DiffLines:

* Pretty much the point of the Literature/TitusCrow novels by Creator/BrianLumley. Titus Crow, Henri de Laurent, and Hank Silberhutte regularly end up smacking around the Cthulhu Mythos' monsters. They even manage to send [[PhysicalGod Great Old One Ithaqua]] fleeing by using an Elder God death ray.
