** One example is ''[[TheLaundrySeries The Laundry Series]]'' by Creator/CharlesStross. Set in the present day, mostly in the UK, in a top-secret, high-tech government agency devoted to staving off "when the stars are right" for as long as possible. TabletopGame/DeltaGreen [[XMeetsY meets]] ''[[Series/TheOfficeUK The Office]]'' meets [[SpyFiction Stale Beer Spy Fiction]]. The monsters are real, the aliens and Deep Ones share the Earth with us... and most governments have secret Occult Intelligence divisions.

Lovecraft had already incorporated small elements of Creator/RobertWChambers' earlier ''Literature/TheKingInYellow'' and the writings of Creator/ArthurMachen by way of [[ShoutOut Shout Outs]]. As time went on, Lovecraft and his friends began referring to his {{Eldritch Abomination}}s and TomesOfEldritchLore in their writings, though usually not actual characters, and to share references made in his friends' stories or private letters. {{Mythopoeia}} defined the abstract, and original, cosmic setting. The actual term "Cthulhu Mythos" (depending on how you define it) post-dates Lovecraft's death, at which time H. P. Lovecraft's work got seized and expanded on by AugustDerleth. Lovecraft himself called his budding mythology "Yog-Sothothery", because Yog-Sothoth features or is mentioned in many more stories than Cthulhu.

Due to the SharedUniverse's informal nature, several rather divisive conceptions of the Mythos have arisen, generally categorized as the Lovecraft purists' version; the version including the broad post-1930s expansions by later writers like AugustDerleth (who is a controversy unto himself) and Ramsey Campbell; and then there's the rigidly codified and de-mystified TabletopRPG adaptations which crunch down MindScrewdriver-style to produce orderly game rules from an inherently disorderly {{Canon}}. Information from the latter has tended to proliferate across the Internet disproportionately, resulting in simple Google searches producing a [[AdaptationDisplacement majority of pages]] derived from the game and its various campaigns, rather than from prose literature (let alone Lovecraft's writings), which are not always labeled as such.

** The stories by Smith, Derleth, Lumley, and Howard, in particular. Smith's tales focus on the weirdness rather than the horror, and Howard's characters were simply BadAss enough to face cosmic horrors and fight them. Even Lovecraft had some lighter tales.
